In addition to the marked mountain bike routes, North Jutland offers a number of mountain bike options in forests and on trails.
It is generally allowed to cycle on all paths and roads in the Danish forests that are man-made and which appear suitable for cycling with an ordinary bicycle (in private forests, however, only from 6 am until sunset). You must not cycle, either on a regular bicycle or on an MTB, in the forest floor, in dunes, or on rock dikes, etc. You must not make your own MTB tracks in the forest. Of course, remember to show consideration for other forest visitors when biking in the woods.
