At the church in Genarp is a road south. A sign shows to Risen nature
reserve. First, through the residential neighborhoods, last part is a narrow
dirt road to a parking. Go from there the green and whote track through spruce
forest with storm-felled uprooted trees, up to a barbecue area. A family with
children is using it. Take to the left, the trail follows a pasture. Through
the forest, the road is lined with wood storages. Mountain bikers drift
past. Passing a farm, children, cats and horses. On the slope towards the road
is shrubbery with broom, will probably be beautiful when it blooms.
Crossing the road, wandering a gravel road south on the other side. Passing
the stone arch bridge over the creek that drains Skoggårds meadows in the west
to Lake Häckeberga. A lot of water under the bridge. At low tide you can jump
the creek up at a dam near the meadows. Today is needed waders. Going up on a
hill and looks out over the meadows. More a marsh than a meadow
today. Wet. Just after the bridge is a forest road to the west. Taking into it
through the forest.
SLABANG SPLASH !! Jerk. What is it? The water starts spraying out of a pipe,
ah, a pump building. Water pumped from the lower wetland south of the road to
the meadows to the north. A tree has been broken, covered with shelf fungi has
also been put to final rest out over the water toward the meadow. The road
winds through the forest. A coffee break sitting on a tree trunk overlooking
the meadows. South of the road is a swamp forest. You can jump the small
streams that cross the forest to the swamp forest. The trees looke the roots
as if they were bones. It's a magical feeling.
Beside the road stands a rotten tree trunk. Passing a stone cellar. It looks
newly renovated. What is it used for? Passing the road again. Walk Skåneleden
back to Risen. By deciduous forest, crossing a mountain bike trail. Horse and
rider pass at a leisurely pace. Much that has fallen in storms. Coming up to
the road to the barbecue area. Following it back. In the forest is large
uprooted trees. Is soon back at the car park.
