This trail is circa 50 km long. Passing Karlskoga airfield and Klista village. Then the gravel road takes over and you cycle through open landscape. At Äspedalen the road takes a 90 degree turn. Shortly you come to a road boom which is closed 15/9 – 1/5, but you continue straight on a beautiful winding road, which eventually follows Lake Lonnen, the first lake in the “Bergslagskanalen” waterway system. Lunndet is a natural place to rest with access to swimming, food, coffee and attractions in the form of the lock at Knappfors, where the 700-year-old oak also stands. The old sintered stone house is open in summer time with general store, exhibitions, smithy and a mill. The trail then continues towards Lonnhyttan, where there was a foundry at one time by the rapids. Continue towards Torpskog along Kedjans valley and then towards Tavlan, which is a little village with a chapel and clock tower. Take a left at Tavlan and follow old Lokavägen up onto the cobblestone ridge which is breathtakingly steep in places. Pass over route 205 and continue towards Östra Kärne. In the cultural landscape between Västra and Östra Kärne the ridge becomes flatter and wider. Here there are also clear traces of inland ice. When it began to melt large chunks of ice would sometimes break off which were buried in gravel and mud. The holes that resulted when the ice melted are called kettle holes. In such holes lie the lakes Östern, Västern och Tiljern. You travel past the old miners’ farms, which are typical for Karlskoga settlements during the mining period. The miners had a share of, or themselves owned, the mines and foundries. Lerälven river valley with fields and meadows is typical of the cultivated areas in Karlskoga. In Granbergsdal is a well preserved foundry, which originated in 1642. It was from the start a so-called mulltimmerhytta (type of wood foundry). After a series of reconstructions and improvements it was in operation until 1925. In the summer you can have a cup of coffee in the coffeehouse and if you feel adventurous you could stay overnight in a foundry room. Then continue on to Karlskoga, passing Grenbergsdal School on the right. When you come to Lerängen you continue on route 243 which becomes Noravägen when you arrive in Karlskoga. Finally, you follow the signs to the centre. Maps are available at Karlskoga Tourist Information.
