Grade: Green
Length: 10km
Type: MTB, Cyclocross
Character: Easy mix of single-track and forest road, through beautiful woodland.
Trail description: This is the original Rörbäcksnäs loop, which has now been extended. A good fun loop which is a fast and easy mix of single track and forest road, great if you are not feeling up to the longer trails. This trail is a great ride and you might end up doing several laps with energy gained from your first run! The trail starts out on a grassy section along the illuminated track, going downhill and crossing the Siktån stream. A sandy section is followed by a series of jumps and curves. The trail then runs on asphalt before joining an easy single track heading past the Old Homestead, Church and Moose Park. Just before the lake Gorrtjärn you will bike on a narrow section above a ravine. After Gorrtjärn there is a slight climb partly on gravel until you cross Torgåsvägen, then downhill towards Siktån following the east side of Medskogshögen. Turn right onto asphalt/concrete and then back to the school on a nice single track.
