The trail is a total of 9.5 kilometers in varied environments. It is not marked with any color, except for a few places, so you walk around with the help of the hiking map. There is also a separate document with explanations of the numbered dots on the map.
The map and explanations can be found here on the right.
There is also a hiking brochure with all trails which can be bought at the tourist office.

- Biotope/Botanically interesting area.
The trail passes Videholmen south of Munkfors power station. The islet can only be reached when the water level is low in Klarälven. The islet has a rich stock of Salix daphnoides (european violet-willow), but also the more unusual grass klarälvslem and lundelm, and Barbarea stricta (in Swedish: strandgyllen). Salix daphnoides (european violet-willow) is a red-listed species described as rare. The area on the land side is also botanically interesting with Potamogeton gramineus, Juncus bulbosus (bulbous bush), Juncus Articulatus (jointed rush), Eleocharis acicularis (needle spike-rush), Eleocharis palustris (common spike-rush) and Alopecurus aequalis (orange foxtail). The area is pleasant over all with low-lying terrain towards Klarälven and further up towards the power station is a shelter.
Some caution must be shown as the dammed water is released without forewarning and the flow in the river channel rapidly changes.
