Nature reserve & Natura 2000 area. With large areas of natural forest and Rotälven and Rällan flowing through the nature reserve its formed this deep canyonlike fissures that form a beautiful waterfall before the confluence. Natural forests have been ravaged by forest fires over the years.
In 2005 the old shed burnt down and a new one was made. It is possible to walk in the area and see the old dammwall with sluice gates that once made it possible to transport the timber past the waterfall on the floating pipe.
