It’s a pretty trail of varied terrains with great scenic views of lake, woods, Hovdala fort. It’s relatively flat and I would rate it easy to moderate. The trail are well marked - we mostly followed the blue orange markers. There is only one bus (no 3) serving the Tormestorp area on hourly interval so check the departure timing at Hassleholm. When we finished the hike at 4pm, we found that there was no more bus service - maybe because it was a public holiday- Easter Monday. Thankfully, a kind soul gave us a ride to town.

The beginning was pretty boring before getting out into the forest and in the countryside. We thought the map was poor and therefore went wrong twice. But otherwise a lovely day trip with varying landscapes.
