Yellow is an odd mix of manicured pathways, insane climbs and treacherous descents. A new rider will likely spend half their time pushing, and as you are already a few km into the park, I might skip this as a new rider. It is a pretty wet route, thanks to the cows, the main pathways regularly turn into small rivers. All this being said, however, if you like a thrill, this is a great loop to ride. If riding Counter Clockwise, be extremely careful on the descents, there is a very poorly marked electric fence at the very bottom of Hjärtstopparen DH. GPX Files.
Total climbing: 250 m
Yellow is an interesting trail as it doesn’t have any connections to a road. You can either start from Purple, from Green or from Light Blue coming from Kvibille. This ride starts from Purple. on a long downhill that is relatively technical, the Swedish name for this segment is, ‘The Terrible Long Downhill,‘ which I would disagree with, but then, who am I to judge. The terrible part is just around the corner!
There is a relatively long stretch of old gravel road, and then you hit the climb, and climb it is. You have to lift your bike over the electric fence (NOTE: On the downhill, this is the one that ends in the extremely dangerous and difficult to see electric fence that this author & his riding buddy have crashed through at full speed.) The average gradient on this climb is 20%.
Once you are on top of the climb, there is a short trail along the ‘peak’ that gives you some fun views through the trees, then you are off on quite a challenging downhill. The cows make things very rocky, so get that weight back, relax, and enjoy the ride.
The last section of this trail is a golf-course perfect grass laneway that takes you back around to Purple. Cows, it turns out, are great at mowing lawns, just not so good at trail maintenance in general.
