Nature

South of Lake Häckebergasjön you walk through an extensive beech woodland. Several parts have an exceptional plant and animal life and are classified as woodland key habitats. There are large trees with spreading crowns, which reveal that they have grown up in an open environment. Several of the old beech trees are in the middle of a several hundred year long fight to the death and are ideal for wood decayers, lichens and mosses. Häckeberga is reknowned for the many rare lichens. Even the rare hermit beetle has found a home here and the area by Degebergahus is managed with special consideration for the beetle, to ensure it survives at Häckeberga.
To north you go through Dörröds fälad. The hazel grows densely here, streams criss-cross the area and the footpath takes a deep dive down into a small, but steep ravine.

Cultural History

Stop and enjoy the hills covered in broadleaved woodland at Husarahagen, which during the 1800s provided summer grazing for the Hussar's horses. Further back in time, it is said that there was a graveyard for victims of the plague.
Dörröds fälad is like a doorway into history. Two hundred years ago, it was an open juniper pasture, but when the animals reduced in number, it began to become overgrown, primarily with hazel.
A bit to the north, you go past Kullatorpet, a well-preserved croft from the 1800s. With a bit of luck it is open and you can warm yourself by the fire.
