Finnleden offers nice hiking possibilities in the woods north of Mangskog, Arvika.
Finnleden consists of three hiking trails in the woods north of Mangskog and offers about 30 km nice hiking possibilities. The trails leads through vast forest areas, passes small rivers and lakes, offers nice views and passes ancient finnish crofts.
The western trail starts at Slobyn, the middle trail in Tobyn and the eastern trail begins at the church in Mangskog. All three trails meet at Flyta and the Finnleden continues up to Bjurbäcken where it is connected with Ängenleden around lake Ängen.
From Ängen there is a trail that goes north past the nature reserves Kalvhöjden and Tiskaretjärn, and then goes west to Fredros where Finnvägen to Bogen starts. West of Tiskaretjärn there is a trail which passes five mines and a soapstone quarry.
The entire trail is marked in orange and more information (in Swedish) and a map is available on http://mangskog.org/
