From coast to coast you walk along the winding roads of Bjäre
and the footpath network in the Grevie hills. From the flat coastal
area and uphill onto the hilly terrain of the ridge.
The Hallandsås ridge is an 80 million year old horst made of
bedrock. On the slopes you walk over the Grevies Backar; eskers
that were laid down 14 000 years ago. The hills are grazed and you
need to climb over several stiles. There are lots of pasque flowers
and butterflies here.
At you walk uphill, the open view is gradually replaced with
broadleaved woodland and at Axelstorp there is a species rich beech
woodland and a ravine by your side. The slope down to Sinarpsdalen
is steep and the water throws itself down several waterfalls.
A winding road takes you down the northern slope of the ridge.
Lyabäcken stream runs at the bottom of the valley with even more
interesting broadleaved woodland. On the opposite side of the
railway there is a classic site for botanists, where lesser
celandine, bush vetch and dog's mercury grow.
Grevies Backar (hills) have long been used for grazing for the
village livestock. To the south there is a funnel shaped drove road
which led the animals out to pasture. If you look carefully you can
also see the remains of small fields and graves from the Bronze and
At Lyngebjärsknall you walk past a shaft which was created in
connection with the building of the railway tunnel through the
Hallandsåsen ridge. On the opposite side of the road you can see
the remains of Axelstorp "out-fields"; a heathland with
hawthorn and beautiful traditional wooden fences.
East of Axelstorp there is steep drop off and by your side there
is the classic "suicidal precipice". This is where the old and
infirm were said to have met their fate.
