Nature

Along footpaths you walk through the mature beech woodland and on in to more mixed woodland. At Klövamölla the landscape opens up to some extent and you pass some lovely pastures. For a stretch you follow along the Klövabäcken, an unusually natural stream in the bottom of the ravine. Exciting species live in this cool environment, both swimming and flying small creatures.
When you have followed the gravel road past the highest point in Skåne, you enter Klåveröd Recreation Area. Along gentle footpaths you walk past several geological attractions. Snuvestuan's (The Sirens Cave) small cave, Vargadalen (The Wolf Valley) with scree slopes and Skorstensdalen's (The Chimney Valley) tor-formations. The recreation area contains lots of woodland, small lakes and water courses.
Closer to Lake Svartesjö you walk along the stream and the boundary of Söderåsen National Park.
An extra trip to Traneröds Mosse, Grindhus and Lilla Klåveröd is recommended. The bog (mosse) is virtually undisturbed and gets a lot of precipitation and has a unique collection of plants. At Grindhus you find species rich pasture which give you an idea of how extensive the pastures of Söderåsen once were.

Cultural History

Klövamölla with its dam is a cultural gem. The mill dates from the 1600s, but the current building is from 1887. The mill is driven by a turbine and is just as efficient today as it was then.
Take a peek into the bushes at the crossroads in Gålarp. Here there is a flax processing house with an arched roof and carefully positioned stones. It was used for drying and beating flax. Other stones that capture your imagination include the trident at Magleröd.
Along the gravel road between Gålarp annd Magleröd there is an unassuming high point. The location is said to be the highest point in Skåne, at 212.2 metres above sea level.
During the 1500s, Klåveröd belonged to Herrevadskloster monastery and the pilgrimage route went past the farm. A few hundred years later it was divided up into four homes. Many of the associated crofts lay spread out and in 1880, 180 people lived here.
At Lilla Klåveröd you can "read" the crofting history in the landscape, with stone walls, small fields, meadows and pastures.
