The Mols-route is approx. 80 kms long, measured from the open-air swimming baths at Riis Skov in Aarhus to the harbour of Grenaa. The route follows the coast both north of Aarhus and south of Grenaa, and crosses the northern part of the Mols area in between. The route is marked with signs showing a little white man on a blue background. The Mols-route is part of the E1 long-distance route. Now and again it is also marked with a St. Andrews Cross, the symbol of the international long-distance route. From Skærsø Station (north of Ebeltoft) the Mols-route and the North Sea Trail follow the same course to the harbour of Grenaa.

An excellent overview of all trails on the peninsula of Djursland, including the Mols-route/North Sea Trail, can be downloaded here. The 13.4 MB file may take some time to download, but the map is interactive allowing for both an overview and the inspection of many details.
