Hike along historic trails in the beautiful nature of Bergslagen
In a joint project between Örebro County Government and the Hörken Community association the old church trail between Hörken and Ställberg has been renoveted.
The trail starts in Grills, continuing passed Hörkens churh and winds it’s ways through the woods down to Lövskogen in east Ställberg about 10 km south.
From Lövskogen you can join the trail to Östra Kumlan passing the Ställbergs old mining area. After several hundred meters on the road to Ställberg a gravel road climbs up to Puttmossen and Grantorp where the trail turns north east towards Brattbergshäll. Follow the kilometer down towards north Hörken on a forrest trail that ends up at Kvarnbacken. After crossing Hörksälven (stream) and the railroad track, turn north on Grillsvägen to return to starting point in Grills.
Total it is about 25 km
The hike offers nature’s beautiful surroundings of Bergslagen, grand forests and majestic views, here and there passing by small villages with picturesque farms. You are welcome to meet the local population in and around the villages that offer guided tours, flee markets, art and handicrafts, smoked fish, cafes, dairies, etc. However, it is wise to make reservations ahead of time to ensure your visit.
