Nature

To the north you walk through neat beech woodland with glimpses of views across the water. This is followed by a longer stretch with straight forestry tracks, lined by planted spruce woodland. To the south, you drop into Fulltofta Recreation Area with varied vegetation and terrain. The camp site at Bjeveröd is nestled between the woodland and the open areas. Adjacent you can find a river to paddle in and a fish pond.

Cultural History

Onsvalakällan (Onsvala Spring) was thought to be the place where "heathens" met up after a battle. Part of the land was owned by the Qvesarum Estate which had its heyday in the latter part of the 1800s, when the Danish Royal Hunting Master lived here. There are ruins from the crofts associated with the estate and a small quarry in amongst the woodland along the trail.
Adjacent to the camp site at Bjeveröd you can find the remains of Bjeveröd Farm with mill, sawmill and a small distillery.
