Slereboån flows through a marked spruce-covered valley between the farms Röserna and Svedjan in Risveden. This environment has long been known for its rich flora, which clearly deviates from the typical in the area.

The valley is bordered to the north by long mountain slopes with natural forest. Below these are several springs where the groundwater emerges. In the west, Gäddevadsbäcken connects with its rapids and falls.

The forest consists of a hundred-year-old spruce forest with elements of even older pines on the slopes. At Svedjan in the west there is a field surrounded by deciduous forest. The rich flora of the spruce forest includes species such as hazel, wood anemone, knotweed and chafing grass. The river has good spawning and nursery grounds for Götaälv salmon and stationary trout. There are also river pearl mussels in some places. Goshawks and common terns are present in the area.

The path through the valley is largely a very beautiful so-called hollow way, an old bridle path, which in places has five parallel branches. It is considered to have been a medieval transportation route from the river valley towards Skarabygden. At Svedjan there are the remains of a house foundation and barn.

Please note: This line is not physically marked. We have recorded a digital trail on existing trails that you can print or download to your phone. You will pass several specially selected natural and cultural heritage sites.
