Stage description

First of all, the trail follows the Hærvejen through Rødekro heading south. Just before the level crossing, the E1 takes a left turn on a narrow path, crosses over a road and leads to the church in Rise.

For a long time the route follows asphalted paths through a largely agricultural area. After roughly 7km it reaches the town of Hjordkær (here there is bus to Aabenraa). Roughly 500 metres after the 2nd roundabout, the path leaves the road and instead of asphalt, it now follows a wide gravel road. At kilometre 10, a sheltered picnic area offers a nice spot for a break.

There is another spot for a good break after a further 4km close to a small lake.

Three kilometres before the end of the stage in Kliplev you can find accommodation at the 'Povlskro Herberg' directly on the E1 route. A couple of hundred metres further on, the E1 cross a small stream, the Bjerndrup Mølleå, on the Povls Bro bridge.
