Route

The E-path starts in Kastrup Airport in Copenhagen and follows the southern side of Copenhagen towards Roskilde.

An alternate E6 starts in Helsingør and follows Nordsjællandsruten to Roskilde. It goes through North Zealand and passes nationalpark Kongernes Nordsjælland.

From Roskilde the E-path follows partly the trail Skjoldungestien to Ringsted. From Ringsted to Korsør the E-path follows its own track. In Korsør you take the train over Great Belt to Nyborg, where the E-path continues south towards Svendborg, where it follows the trail Øhavsstien on the southern part of Fyn. Take the ferry from Svendborg to Ærøskøbing on the island Ærø and continue along Øhavsstien to Søby. Take the ferry from Søby to Fynshav, where you continue south to meet the Leading Quality Trail Gendarmstien. Follow Gendarmstien, passing Sønderborg and Gråsten towards Kruså.

The E-path is well documented on Waymarked Trails
