Cross-country cycling

With Kläppen camping as a starting point you can cycle three easy/medium-difficulty trails.

Go all out on an intense exercise ride and finish it off with a refreshing dip in the river, or take the family on an easier journey, and make a stop on the trail for a coffee break at IRIS Glasskafé. A free bike wash is available at the campsite.

Älvslingan - 6.5 km
Type of cycling: MTB
Surface: Gravel road, grass and trail.
Difficulty: The trail is flat and easy to bike on.
Description: The trail starts at Kläppen’s campground and then goes south over the meadows and through the forest next to the river. At 3.5 km south of Gråheden, the trail turns and heads northward on the embankment back via the Welcome Center and then down to Kläppen’s campground. Just before the trail turns, there is a shelter which is a nice destination. Keep in mind that the trail may be wet after rain.

Gusjöslingan - 4 km
Type of cycling: MTB
Surface: Gravel road and trail.
Difficulty: The trail is easily cycled and partially flat, but with sections that are more technical.
Description: The trail starts at Kläppen’s campground, then goes north in a scenic area along the river and later crosses motorway nr. 71. After the road, the trail continues on a nice path through the forest to later return south along the old railway line and back to Kläppen’s campground.

Örebäcksleden - 11 km
Type of cycling: MTB
Surface: Trail, gravel road and asphalt. Note: The trail runs about 1km along motorway nr. 71.
Difficulty: A slightly more difficult trail as there is some uphill biking in the beginning. Otherwise, it is quite easy.
Description: The trail starts at Kläppen’s campground and takes you north via the first section of the Gusjöslingan trail, over the national road and further up for a long climb on a dirt road before turning towards Vasaloppsvägen. After about 3km you arrive at a shelter where you then turn south. Follow the signs along the gravel road back to the ski area. Once you enter the ski area, the trail from the old downhill path takes you down via Tranantorget and back to Kläppen’s campground.
