At Østengård a new hiking trail and a vantage tower have been created as part of a nature project. The trail goes through a hilly terrain, alder swamps, springs and places where you can still find traces of diatomite, which was mined in the area in the past. From the vantage tower there’s a great view of Vejle River Valley and the cropped commons on the south-facing slopes.
The trail and the tower at Østengård offer great views of nature and landscape on the hilly slopes. The trail has a big recreational value for the residential areas at Skibet. The tower can be upgraded to a vantage platform, which apart from providing a better view can also add to the architectural value.
