  • To do
  • Valuable nature

The well-known outdoor area is about 5-6 square kilometres in size, and criss-crossed by paths and trails. There are loops that are between 1.5 and 10 km in length, marked with different colours. In winter they are marked for skiing. The terrain varies, with both heights and smaller depressions. In all directions the area is bordered by roads, so getting lost is hardly possible and the well-maintained tracks make it easily accessible.

The forest is mainly a production forest in different stages, and in this older part blueberries and lingonberries thrive. If you leave the paths you can find chanterelles and other mushrooms. In the older part of the forest various small forest birds thrive such as nuthatches, goldcrests, bullfinches and treecreepers. There is a small key biotope area in the northeast section with deciduous forest. Look out for more forest birds, but watch out for cyclists!

These are broad well-maintained trails. The sub-strata can vary in gravel quality, and is sometimes soft where bark has been spread.

Shoes that you can walk or run long distances in.
