Start and finish: The square in Älmhult
The cycle trail between Älmhult and Råshult is a signed route along quiet
paved roads, cycle paths and forest tracks. Start at Älmhult station (1)
and cycle north alongside the railway line. In Möckeln, you’ll cycle under
the railway and on a hot day you can stop off at Möckeln’s lovely beach
(2). In Sällhult (3), you can stop and talk to the cows. Cross Road 600
and continue north on forest and gravel tracks all the way to Råshult.
Note that you’re cycling on an old gravel ridge, known as an esker, and
don’t forget to enjoy the wonderful broadleaf forest and the proximity to
the water (4). You’ll also cycle past fields with delightful Småland roundpole fences at Stenbrohult Nature Reserve (5). When you reach Linné’s Råshult (6), you can enjoy lunch and home baking in the KRAV-certified organic garden café. The dotted trail is an alternative unsigned route back to Älmhult. This takes you via the beautiful bridge Såganäsbron (7), Såganäs campsite (8), rocky outcrops that reveal the diabase-heavy bedrock in the area (9) and Älmhult golf course with its Goaroije restaurant (10).
