There are five walking trails in Almindingen. They are marked in yellow on posts, rocks and trees. All routes are shown on a map in the Nature Agency’s mini-guide. The trails are between three and just over six kilometres. The map is also suitable for organising your own trips.
Disabled access and strollers
The trails and routes shown in the mini-guide are not suitable for people who have difficulty walking nor for wheelchair users. It would also require some determination to wheel a pram all the way along the marked routes. However, wheelchair users and prams can get around easily on the forest roads, which are also shown in the mini-guide. Please note, however, that the western half of Almindingen is very hilly.
At Bastemose you find a wheelchair-friendly bird tower (in Danish)
At Hareløkkerne you find 2 shelters. One is a wheelchair accessible shelter, which you can enter in a wheelchair. Each shelter has room for approx. 6 adults. Toilet facilities are found by the bike path. There is no running water. See more under the heading sleeping in the open.
