The area starts at the Gl. Rye Mølle & Træskomuseum (Mill and clog museum), leading to the heater-clad area around Galgebakken, which is 101 metres above sea level. A side path leads to the sheep grazing area on Musebakke, where there are good views over Mossø and the area around Sukkertoppen.
The heather-clad range of hills has been partically cleared of selv-sown tree growth and an area of sheep grazing has been established as part of Århus County's programme of heathland care. There is full public access to thes heathland and to the area within the sheep fence.
