You can use a very simple trick to make hidden forest paths in Stronghold 2. These are passable through forests but cannot be seen, allowing for a perfect ambush point.

First of all, place down a path of man traps - this should be the path you want your units to take.

Next, place trees over the forest path:

To complete the trick, press ALT + G and delete the man traps. Or .... you could just leave them in for a surprise ...

Finally, I'd like to add there are endless opportunities possible by using this trick. A very good example of how this can be incorporated into your every-day map is Flight from Nottingham by Sir DavidSpy.
