Drive the winding narrow road past the northern end of Lake Häckeberga.
Turn right past the castle.
Park at a parking on the east side of the road.
Is already several cars there.
A hazy day.
The autumn colors are diffuse.
Following the trail clockwise along the lakeshore.
A pair of walking the dog.
They turn where the trail becomes muddy at the marsh south of the lake.
The bridges over the streams are slippery from the moisture.
Mountanbikecyclists drive up.
You get to jump aside.
The path becomes even more muddy of them.
Improved through beech forest.
Out on the small road lined with large ferns.
Out on the gravel road west of the lake.
Following it to the north.
After a house into the path in the woods.
Along the lake again.
Between the fence to pasture and lake.
The northern part of the lake is walked on the narrow road.
Watch out for cars.
The castle looming in the south.
Coffee by the lake.
A bunch of joggers passing on the road.
Below are three hikes around Lake Häckeberga, they should be
seen as a
unit. I will not repeat all the things in the diary from the tour.

Around the lake.
Third time I manage. Today I have time to calmly walk around the
lake. Superb weather. Many others have come to the area. Parking
nearly full. The lake is glassy. I go counterclockwise, survives the
road north of the lake. Entering the path along the lake. Meet a man
been photographed the castle's reflection in the lake. He is an
artist amd will
make a painting with the castle as motif. Passing the tree that had
over the fence.
Enjoying the reflections in the lake. A couple passes me. Coming
up to the corner with the stile where I went yesterday. Coming
to a wide path through a beech forest. Below shows the wetland at
the lake. The
path ends at a gravel road.
I take south on the gravel road. The road pass on a stone arch
bridge over a
brook from Skoggård meadows to the west. Before the bridge, I
the forest and follow the feed to the meadows. At the meadows is a
in the stream. Jump, with some effort I jump over the creek. Easier
to use the
bridge. After the arch bridge is a path into the beech forest. I
have before me
the couple, they must have paused somewhere. Behind me, families
children. I have
a nice view of the lake from my path through the beech forest.
Ops, that is a dead end, a marsh. The couple turns to walk around
But there should be
a path through the swamp? Sure, I find out and give me out on it in
wetland. It was
cold last night, and the ground is frozen. Stone leads the way
reeds. It is only twenty meters, then I am in the forest again.
RAs tent camp. The families with children follow, but stops
somewhere before. I
sit down at the lake for lunch. In the shadow is the night's newly
still on the lake.
Return to the trail. Encountering a couple with a terrain stroller.
stroller can manage even the narrow bridges over the creeks. The
along the wetlands. streams are passed on footbridges, creeks are
with autumn fallen leaves. Walk between fields and and wooded shores
lake. Here and there are fireplaces. Also disposable barbecues, one
energy to drag them out in the wild, but not not to take them from
well? My car has got company.

Park in the parking lot who one find just south of the entrance to
castle. There are already many out in the good weather. Following
north. The lake is blank. Going along the road north of the lake. It
along the lake, narrow and curvy and you have to watch out. The lake
natural, the way is on a dam embankment. Along the way, there are
gates. Where the road leaves the lake are stiles, one to pasture and
path that follows the lakeshore. I choose the latter.
The path goes along the fence to the pasture. Passing the places
pasture goes down to the water. Here and there are openings in the
fence. The leaves have got their autumn color. Take a detour on the
the pasture and to get an overview. Then I go down to the path
again. Häckeberga castle is mirrored in the calm water. Walking
under the beech
autumn. The trail leaves the lake where the shore becomes wetland.
branches that extend into the pasture, foliage stands out on the
trail. A tree
has fallen over the path and fence. I climb awkwardly over it and
paddock. Going up on the hill and get a view of the lake and the
Romeleåsen. Excellent place for a late lunch.
In the corner of the forest is a passage to a wide path. Time is
running out, the path, I have to explore it more at a later time. I
hurry back the
same way, but have time to enjoy the reflections in the water. A
trunk looks like two with its reflection.

It is a beautiful autumn day. Drive to Lake Häckeberga to see how the fall
advance. Maybe the wolf that is said to be in Skåne made it there? Maybe I'll
see deer? A red kite hovering over the fields? Drive past the castle and park in
a parking space along the road. At the lake there is a path, follow it
south. The trees are starting to turn to colorful autumn clothes. A squirrel
scurries up a tree, stop and studying me carefully, then disappears rapidly
into the tree crown. In the north, looming castle, the islands shift to
beautiful autumn color. Walk along the edge of a field, glimpsed some deer, they've
already seen me and they disappear too. The path goes past the wetlands found
south of the lake, three streams are crossed on bridges. Coming into a
beech forest. The leaves are on fire.
Where is the trail? Seeing some wheel track that I
follow. What is this? A camp. 'RA adventure and Development' has been here
many years, an adventure camp. This explains one of the organizers for me. I
have not seen or heard of it before. A group is sitting around the campfire. I go
back in the wheel tracks and comes to a forest road with parking. The road
ends at a gravel road. Across the road is a wetland, Skoggård meadows. They
have been used as a water reservoir, for hay production, and peat mining. A
nice area. My adventure is over and I have to hurry back. Taking the same
path back, north of the lake will be for another day.
