Trail marking: Red bars bearing an X-like white sign
Trail description: Bysjörundan starts at Sjöbergskasernerna, which is located near Kvarnsveden's paper mill and opposite Kvarnsveden's school. From here you can follow the erected red poles with an X-like white sign, which is a trademark from Övermora village from the beginning of the 18th century. The posts show you the way via Bysjökasernerna, Lisselholen, Sör Amsberg, Plantskolan, Vassjön, Häggenäsudden, Bysjön and Sjöberget.
Fun fact - these special x-signs actually derive from a bookmark from Övermora village from the beginning of the 18th century.
The bikingtrail goes through the village Övermora instead of Sjöberget and it is 2 kilometers longer.
Along the trail you can see ancient monuments such as the grave Kungshögen from the iron ages , industrial history and modern industry. The trail is mostly flat and so its suitable for both beginners and experienced cyclists. Make sure you stop and say hello to the highland cattle that often graze by lake Bysjön. Or enjoy your break in the observation-deck by lake Vassjön. On the east side of lake Bysjön, on the side of Sjöberget, there is a lookout point with a windshelter and fireplace.
Available all year round.
