Sets the car on a car park decorated with autumn leaves.
Next to Skåneleden.
Have read that it's a nature reserve,
but finds no information about it.
A view tower of stone looks straight into the forest.
Skåneleden follows the hill on a trail sprung with autumn leaves.
In the beginning, muddy, the leaf cover protects.
At some places you look over the valley.
Still the autumn colors are lit.
Hiking on the edge towards the valley.
Through beech forest.

A lovely autumn day.
Leaves the valley.
Over an open surface, deforestation?
Between fence and stone wall.
Through forest to the gravel road past Klöva mill.
You do not see much of the mill.
Enter the path before Klövabäcken.
Good lunch in sunny glow, just after a brook.
At the deforestation, mountain biking cyclists come forward.
Return to the car after about 9 km of beautiful hiking.
Walk in the valley. Visit on Soffebacken.

restored, one house and the dance hall was rebuilt by a community

out on a plateau
overlooking the valley. Autumn colors begin to decorate the
trees. Continuing along the trail, make room for a horse rider. Passing

grove. In many
places it has sweeping views of the rift valley, in the north to the
plains. The slopes of the valley are glowing in the autumn sun. The

leads. They have walked down in the valley from Klöva hallar. We go
down. Meet two men, one who lives nearby and can the valley from the

a cave. Walk
there, passing over a screes, somewhat slippery and steep. The cave is
a crack in
the rock. On the other side, the valley extends up to the cliff
Walk down to the creek where we have lunch, lush greenery below
the Soffebacken precipice. Maybe go back down to Klöva hallar

the dog. Goes up again, through the beautiful beech forest. Meet a
dogs, we ask how far it is to go to the Skåneleden shelter Krika

almost there. We find the path through the forest to the windshield
which is a few
hundred meters from the trail, at the edge of a meadow. Alongside is a
