Pilbro Valley by Stilling Solbjerg Lake

Between the villages Vitved and Solbjerg (north east from Skanderborg) ends Pilbro Valley in Solbjerg Lake. The Valley is wide and cuts down into the hills between the villages Vitved and Fastrup.
More towards the west ends Pilbro Valley into Stilling Lake. The Valley on this side is narrow with steep hills. The ground in the whole area is very fertile and rich with vegetation. It is not uncommon to find different kinds of orchids.

In the Pilbro Valley there have been several lakes but most of them have turned into moors. Since then turf has been dug out from these mors and this has created a number of minor water holes, which have given the valley its present characteristic features.

As the entire preserved area is private property, the public has access in the special areas by by the towns Stilling and Vitved, there are hiking paths near the most characteristic landscapes.
Public acces is only allowed in these marked areas.
