Section: 4 Hässleholmsgården-Rännarehusen

Walking on asphalt you go past a young town and along gravel paths with a view across cleaning ponds with birds and flowers. On ever narrowing paths, through a beech woodland, up the steep slope of the ridge.

Walking on asphalt you go past a young town and along gravel paths with a view across cleaning ponds with birds and flowers. On ever narrowing paths, through a beech woodland, up the steep slope of the ridge.

Nature

Here you go through an avenue in an estate, a housing area and past allotments on into the countryside and Magle wetland. The wetland is a flourishing water treatment project. In the man-made ponds, there are birds to watch and a hide and tower which make bird watching easier. In the summer, the banks of the ponds are decorated by a colourful display of flowers.
The northern edge of Göingeåsen Ridge is covered with mature beech woodland. Follow the trail and take an extra little trip to Trollberget and the adjacent pond, a little jewel where the bedrock is exposed and the silence speaks for itself.
At Rännarehusen there is a croft adjacent and nearby several attractive pastures. Keep an eye out for unusual plants.

Cultural History

Hässleholmsgården estate is where the town of Hässleholm originated. The owner's interest in trains and the railways played a large part when in 1860, he donated the nutrient poor land for the tracks to be built. One station building later, and it became easy to sell plots of adjacent land.
South of Stattena you walk along a small winding road, this is the old road which led to the town of Hässleholm.
Magle wetland was used for hay making and at that time was connected with Lake Finjasjön. The water level of the lake was actually 3 m higher than today and the railway banks were covered in stones to cope with the waves.
