Cross country in Älvdalen


Blå Gröntjärn 12 km

Bike: MTB
Trail: Mainly paths
Description: An enjoyable and varied tour that starts on a bark-covered track round the skiing stadium. Then you bike on partly technical trails over rocks and roots with speedy descents to the village of Näset and the Porfyr dam. You follow an old cart track and part of the military road before turning into the woods again. Now you are on a stretch of the easily negotiated waterside path along Gröntjärn. The trail ends with an entertaining roller-coaster ride which challenges you to select the right gears. There are two shelters by Gröntjärn, perfect for a stop for refreshments.

Blå Knixen 4 km

Bike: MTB
Trail: Paths and bark
Description: Playful twisty tour taking you through sharp turns as well as up and down - a real challenge for you and your friends, with few roots or stones. The Knixen tracks are close to the sports hall and to two shelters if you want to make a fire to barbecue sausages or just warm yourselves up.

Röd MTB-kåsan 10 km

Bike: MTB
Trail: Mainly paths
Description: ”Kåsan” (the Trial) starts with a short stretch on bark which leads you out on to a tough cycle track with a long climb over technical rocky sections. Your legs will feel the ascents but will soon be duly rewarded with a long speedy descent. You spend a short time on a gravel road before turning into the woods with challenging and entertaining rough stretches. As you ride down towards Nystamnet, where there is a shelter, you are on the same waterside path as the Gröntjärn trail. Then a stiff climb is in store and once up at the top you have a great downhill slope to the roller-coaster ride. The last part of the trail offers another tough climb and descent and some demanding marshland before the sports hall comes into view and you can relax.
