Here you walk through the heart of Söderåsen National Park. In the valleys, southern, northern and western species meet. The area is considered one of the country's most diverse in terms of fungi on land and trees, almost 400 species have been found. From the slope at Lierna you have an impressive view over Korsskär. A bit further on, it is time to head down and get close contact with the valuable Skärån. Here live brook trout, elephant and brook nephew eye. Sensitive mosquito and dragonfly larvae have also found retreat sites. Via paths and the old Offavägen, you reach the climax of the stage, Kopparhatten. Here you have a magnificent view of the valley and the beech forest. Soon you reach Skärdammen and naturum. Here is a concentrate of experiences in the exhibition and along a footbridge around the lake. Continue a bit on the almost vertical path south of the lake and visit Hjortsprånget - a place with both views and strange stories. The trail passes next to the tiny Uggleröddalen valley, Nackarpsdalen and rounds the mythical Odensjön. The lake is surrounded by species-rich breeds. Cultural history The oldest traces in the area are narrow-gauge with rods and stone strings, probably from younger bronze ages. Until the 18th century, beech forest dominated on the ridge, but the cattle, the peasants' most important source of income, were released on pastures in the forest and went hard. After a while, only the valley sides had mature forest. You can find pickled trees, so-called "rice books", from the forestry season. All surfaces that could be used were used. Dalbottnar became mowing ground and hay was carried on his back or was carried on oxen and horses uphill. The off road, which you walk on, facilitated the work. It was built in the early 1800s by Samuel von Offen. On the edge of the valley were the farms Lierna and Råröd. They were described in 1815 as "the most unsuccessful in agriculture in this parish". One of Lierna's towers struggled so hard at the slopes so he got the nickname Liaspöket. Odensjön and Skäralid became popular tourist destinations in the 19th century. Gradually, a restaurant with a dance track, railway station and later a tourist hotel grew up. Röstånga is known as an old firearm where traveling and their horses could rest. For a long time, Jällabjär was pasture for the villages of Röstånga and Kolema.Show more

This loop trail combines part of the Skäralid-Klåverod Skånedelen trail with the Hjortsprångsrundan loop trail. From the Skäralid visitor center, take the orange marked Klåverod trail until it meets up with the blue marked Hjortsprångsrundan trail and continue until the trails split, at which point you follow the blue markers to finish the loop at the visitor center. The loop features a few great view points which allow you to see the deep valley and forested hilly landscape.Show more

This trail takes you through beech forest and mixed forest. At Klövamölla the landscape opens up slightly and you pass fine pastures. A stretch follows you along Klövabäcken, where you will find a natural stream down in the bottom of the ravine. When you follow the gravel road past Skåne's highest point, you step into Klåveröd's hiking area. On soft paths you pass several geological attractions: Snuvestuan’s little cave, the Vargadalen valley with racetracks and Skorstensdalens dry landscapes. The area offers many forests, small lakes and watercourses. Closer to Svartesjö you walk along the stream and the border to Söderåsen National Park. An extra walk to Traneröds bog, Grindhus and Lilla Klåveröd is to be recommended. The moss is almost completely untouched, exposed to unusually high rainfall and has a unique composition of plants. At Grindhus you will find abundant pastures that show how Söderåsen's wide field fields once looked. Cultural history Klövamölla with dam is a cultural-historical gem. The mill dates back to the 17th century, but the current building dates from 1887. The mill is operated by turbine and is as working now as it was then. Look inside the bush at the crossroads in Gålarp. Here is an arched breakaway cabin, with carefully crafted stones. It was used for drying and roasting flax. Other imaginative stones are the trident at Magleröd. Along the gravel road between Gålarp and Magleröd is a modest highlight. The point is said to be Skåne's highest, 212 meters above sea level. In the 16th century, Klåveröd belonged to Herrevadskloster and the pilgrimage path passed past the farm. A few hundred years later, it was divided into four homes. Plenty of associated towers were scattered around and by 1880 180 people lived here. At Lilla Klåveröd you can "read" dry history in the landscape, with stone walls, small fields, meadows and pastures. Show more
