Description of Walk

Brattfallet is a 10 metre waterfall, that drops into a deep ravine. Halgån Canyon is spanned by a beautiful, high old stone bridge. There is also a stone beach at Brattfallet that dates from the log driving age. Halgåledens strövslinga follows an old packhorse route upstream along the river to an old log driving dam. The trail passes through airy woods and bouldered terrain. The pine tree forest is pleasant to wander through. Approx. 500 metres of the trail is suitable for wheelchair users and buggies. The walk can be combined with Halgåleden.
