The Uppland Trail, Walk 7:1

The walk through small nature reserve Hästhagen-Kilholmen has a lot to offer to those interested in plants, birds and insects. The hike begins and ends at the reserve’s parking area, just by Bennebol’s mill. Around half the section goes through Hästhagen-Kilholmen, with lush, mixed forests and plenty of boulders. The other half takes you along a gravel road with little traffic, between the old iron mills Vällnora and Bennebol. By the idyllic Bennebol mill, there are many building remains from the time when the iron mill was operational.

Difficulty level: Medium, around half on forest paths with many boulders, and the rest on easy-to-walk gravel roads.
