Secret Places

Purhøj north, Horsens

Purhøj north, Horsens

A path that goes on the north west side of Purhøj, the path goes through dense forest, up the side of the hill and ends at the foot again.

Walk through the forest boom and follow the gravel path, it winds up to the right and goes straight out. When the gravel path turns 90 degrees to the right, continue straight out. There are three ways. A 90 degrees to the right, one that goes a little to the left, finally a small path that goes straight ahead. Continue off the path straight ahead

You now walk in close spruce forest along the foot of the hill, the path turns 90 degrees right up the hill after a good distance and there is a branch slightly down to the left. You have to go to the right, which is quite steep here. The path ends like nothing but you just have to go up. (Have gone and wondered if this path is not completely impassable in the summer, if someone has the courage to try to walk down the branch to the left instead. You should be able to get up on the upper path by walking in a bow to the right ). Then you come up on another path, the upper path. Nice views. Go to the right, here the path goes out in the open, half up the hill. At the end of the path you can go right and left, select the right one. You then go down and come to the path you originally followed into the fir forest. Turn left here and you come down to the gravel road again. Follow the dirt road back to the parking lot.
