Lake Krankesjön is a first class bird watching area. There are
bird towers and hides here.
The railway line takes you past the open and flat area of
Revingehed. There are lots of water-filled peat extraction pits and
wet woodlands. As well as a rich bird life, different species of
toads, frogs and newts thrive here.
At Torna Hällestad the Trail takes you along a network of eskers.
They were formed when the ice melted after the last Ice Age, some
13000 years ago. The eskers are now covered in species rich
pastures, beech woodland and the mutation known as dwarf beech.
Keep an eye out for flowers such as pasque flower and
To the south you climb up a completely different type of ridge;
Romeleåsen. It is one of the largest in Skåne and is a horst. You
walk through beech woodland primarily, but also some spruce.
Revingehed tank training area, which you pass by here, became a
training area for the infantry in 1888.
Make a detour from the railway line and discover the medieval
church in Törna Hällestad and the rune stones built into the walls.
They are in memory of two brave Vikings; Toke and Arre. The village
probably originates from the Middle Ages and eventually became a
station community and today is a villa community. You pass by
a gneiss quarry, now filled with water.
Closer to Romeleåsen you pass one of the largest and most well
preserved stone monuments in the form of a ship; Jättagraven at
Skåne was one of the counties with the most number of country
estates in Scandinavia and at the beginning of the 1700s Björnstorp
Manor made its entrance. It was previously a relatively unimportant
farm. The park is open for visitors. The creation of the park began
in 1761 by the nobleman Adolf Fredrik Barnekow, and it was probably
this which ruined him.
A memorial stone east of the estate describes the surrounding bare
landscape and the planting of trees. The Björnstorp estate was
early to embrace the planting wave and started as early as 1880
with the re-planting of woodland.
