A great hike on footpaths in the direction of the Skars and Helags massifs
Follow the trails leading north from Ramundberget. Once you have crossed the bridge over the River Ljusnan, keep to your left towards Klinken, signposted Pilgrimsturen. The trail follows the valley westward, in the direction of the Norwegian border, partly on the northern banks of the River Ljusnan. In June you can explore the vast fields of wood anemones, some even pink and purple; in July and the first half of August ther are various kinds of orchids as well as the Nigritella Nigra.
Along the trail you can read up on the pilgrim hikes on the various boards and study the trapping pits and other interesting sights.
After passing Kallsvallen, just before the small bridge across the brook there is an oddity to observe! In front of you, to the left of the path there are two brooks, seemingly running on collision course. Walk closer and you’ll find the explanation.
Turn off from the trail and follow the Pilgrimsleden up on Mount Röstvålen. There are many fine spots for a break and a picnic along the River Sveån en route towards the summit of Mount Röstvålen. Make a detour to the edge of the ravine to admire all the small waterfalls on the slopes.
The views of the peaks Skarsfjället at 1,594 m and Helagsmassivet at 1,796 m are magnificent.
After a break at the summit, follow Pilgrimsleden in the direction of Giertebaune and Kungsleden.
Turn into Kungsleden 2 km south to Giertebaunestugan and from there, the summer trail to the left down towards the River Ljusnan.
Once arrived in the valley follow the path on the north bank of the River Ljusnan back to Ramundberget.
Path and trail in alpine terrain.
Partially signposted with red elks, partly marked trail and partly unmarked paths.
