Description of Walk

Kycklingleden, The Chicken Trail, winds along Lake Vänern, through a rare hazel grove, up to the mountain, and down again through the unusual Chicken Dale where 38 rare species of plants and animals have been identified. You pass a site where the largest forest fire in over 50 years ravaged an area of 2 km² in 2004. From the picnic area on the mountain top you have a nice view over lake Vänern, the largest lake in Western Europe, measuring 5 650 km². Lake Vänern contains the biggest freshwater archipelago in Europe with more than 22 000 islands and islets.
