Children on a hike

Hike in the World Heritage Site, Örnkullen

Örnkullen is a 5,5 km long stretch that connects Stora alvarleden with Gösslundaleden.

Just south of the car park, on Resmo-Brunnebyvägen, is Kritmossen. Here you will find traces of human activity in the form of a 115 meter long dam, which had the task of damming water from the marsh upstream. According to reports, there must have been a grist mill here, but no traces of this remain. The large stone foundations next to it are believed to be left-over warehouses of limestone slabs, so-called palms. Örnkullen is a small ridge with a wide view over the flat landscape, a place made for a moment's rest. Next to the trail, you can see several small, razed stone houses that were once used as shepherds' huts. There are also several smaller outcrop areas and two rather overgrown burial mounds.
