White Trail – Simlångsdalen

Beginning at Simlångsgården, at the far end of the valley, the white trail is a wilderness experience. You get to ride through some amazing forests on at least 60% single track over a 13km distance. This trail seems remote from Halmstad, but during the explosion of ever-growing crowds of people discovering the wilderness for theirContinue reading “White Trail – Simlångsdalen”

Den okände mannens stig

One of the new trails developed by Halmstad MTB Klubb, Mudfuckers and other incredibly hardworking, passionate cyclists, this trail is a short, well developed ride that gives beginners a chance to try riding berms for their first time.

Mountain biking allows us to rekindle that flame, to feel like an explorer again. This loop aroundContinue reading “Simlångsdalen 25”

Simlångsdalen Epic

Simlångsdalen provides some of the largest hills in the region, similar in height to Hallandsåsen, but without all the crowds. Please note that Svartaklippan Nature Reserve does not allow bikes. I haven’t had a chance to update the route yet, but please don’t ride there! Here it’s rough old farm roads, single track or loggingContinue reading “Simlångsdalen Epic”
