DESCRIPTION OF THE TRIP:
Follow the marked road which starts at the big map on the north side of the road towards Malmbäckstugan and Lill-Skarven. Pass Nordic Ski tracks (Funäsdalen cross country ski system during the winter) and continue the path a few hundred meters. When the path turns left, follow it straight ahead, pass a big stone. The path follows some other trails but it is marked. The trail goes thruogh birchwood and up on bare mountain. Follow it until Livsäterån and here you can walk over to the other side and follow the river way down in the ravine.

The river is reduced in the mountains and has many flat rocks to break at. Excellent for swimming in the small waterfall or just enjoy the mountains and hear the water rippling. Walk a bit along the enchanting water falls. Beautiful view down over Funäsdalen village and Funäsdalsberget. The cottages here are private and should be respected, do not go too close.
