Making an Object Follow the Contours of Another?

I have a road that I am trying to make follow a countryside of rolling hills. My question is how to make this road(a segment in a cloner object) follow the contours of my landscape. Thank you!

I think the easiest way would be to draw a straight spline following the desired path of the road. Then subdivide the spline and use Mesh>Spline>Project to project it onto your landscape. Once that's done you can either clone directly onto the spline or use a spline effector.

Could you elaborate on that a bit more please? I'm very new to making entire scenes in this program so I need a bit of hand-holding with this one! Thank you!
