Illeris, Lodhøj and Rotholmen Plantations
There are two marked trails in the plantations. Cycling route no. 36 (part of the national route no. 12) passes through the plantations. The many different bird species provides life in the varied growths.
The old road that connected Hvalpsund, Alstrup and Gedsted winds through the plantations. The road also function as a church road to Alstrup and later on it worked as a road when milk was collected from the local farms and brought to the dairy in Hvalpsund. There are more than 16 burial mounds from the Bronze Age that provide a good illustration of our forefathers. None of the burial mounds have been excavated by archaeologists but in many of them there is evidence of treasure hunters that have searched for hidden treasures. Around the burial mounds there are many settlements and other archaeological traces.
There are toilet facilities by the parking lot.
