Sand or mud?

Tisvilde Hegn is characterized by sand drifts, which have created many hills. The sand drains rainwater quickly, so there is minimal mud on the trail.

Ride the route as a figure-8

The three parts of the route can be ridden in one long stretch by following a figure-8 with an extra circle. The entire route is approximately 31 km and is the longest MTB trail on Zealand.

If you have time for a break

Tisvilde Hegn is an exciting forest area with natural pearls, old castle ruins, and historical treasures. See, among other things, Asserbo Castle Ruin, the Troll Forest, Tisvildeleje Beach, and the lost village of Torup.
