Södra Ridvadsrundan

A gentle day trip with a refreshing dip. Start at Vallbo fjällgård and walk north on the old post road (signed), enjoying the babbling stream at the old sawmill. Cross the road to Vålådalen and continue on the old road to Ottsjön. The long sandy beach is perfect for playing and bathing and turns into Sweden’s longest natural bridleway ford. Walk back and turn left onto the path to Fångåmon. Here, cross the road again and follow the road to Håckren. Cross the bridge over the rushing Fångån and then turn right. After a few hundred metres, turn right again onto the path to Bäverkroken; a perfect picnic spot with a sad history. Take a refreshing dip in Fångån before crossing the suspension bridge. Then continue on the path back to Vallbo. Alternative start/finish: Fångåmon
