Biskopstorp Yellow Clockwise

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… Continue Reading “Biskopstorp Yellow Clockwise”

Biskopstorp Brown Loop Clockwise

Short, wet, with one tricky descent. Beginners might enjoy themselves, but to be avoided after a lot of rain or in the winter. Boggy sections ahead. Named, “Skogstuganlingan,” or Forest Cabin trail. I haven’t seen a cabin, but there’s lots of forest to look… Continue Reading “Biskopstorp Brown Loop Clockwise”

Biskopstorp Purple Counter clockwise

This is a technical trail with fast descents and tough, tough climbs. It’s not the type of trail that a beginner would necessarily enjoy. GPX Files. Open canopy beech forests roll out in front of you as you leave the parking spot on the… Continue Reading “Biskopstorp Purple Counter clockwise”

Skedala — Orangea slingan moturs

Orangea slingan är relativt kort men innehåller ändå en hel del höjdmeter. Backarna är varierade, med både tekniska och steniga uppförspartier, samt branta nedförsbackar över klipphällar. Den är inte särskilt sliten, jämfört med till exempel den röda, men är inte heller igenväxt. Det gör… Continue Reading “Skedala — Orangea slingan moturs”

Skedala — Vita slingan medurs

Vit är en relativt flak slinga med en ordentlig upp- och nedförsbacke. Tillståndet på stigen är varierande, med en del fina partier i gott skick, men också en hel del potential till lerbad. Under torra perioder är det en bra nybörjarloop, men den passar… Continue Reading “Skedala — Vita slingan medurs”

Skedala Orange Loop Counter Clockwise

Orange is a technical route with some tough climbs, and some tougher descents. There are a few sections that I would consider to be downhill. It has seen a lot of trail development in 2020 by Halmstad MTB club. It now features some berms… Continue Reading “Skedala Orange Loop Counter Clockwise”

Skedala White Clockwise Loop

Not much climbing, for a relatively simple loop with a few hazards that are easy to avoid. A good beginner’s loop, matches well with laps on Yellow or Blue. Beware of extremely muddy spots at the bottom of drops. Avoid this loop when it’s… Continue Reading “Skedala White Clockwise Loop”

Skedala Red Loop Clockwise

Starting at Skedalaskog Vastra entrance (or cycling in from town on the back trails, coming soon). This is the most wilderness loop available in Skedala. If you are looking to get away from the hikers, and do a long ride on tough single track,… Continue Reading “Skedala Red Loop Clockwise”

Skedala Yellow Loop Clockwise (K2 variant)

The yellow route is not a difficult ride. The trail is not overly rocky or rooted, and there are not any tough climbs. It’s a great starter trail…but it has a downside. Yellow is one of the wettest trails in a wet park. GPX… Continue Reading “Skedala Yellow Loop Clockwise (K2 variant)”

Skedala Green Loop (Djungel Run variation) Clockwise

Technical, fun, challenging, wet trail that is well marked. Skedala, the heart of Halmstad’s mountain biking community, features a wide range of trails. One of the most popular, and technical, is the green loop. Starting from the Torvsjön/Ön parking lot off of Hwy. 25,… Continue Reading “Skedala Green Loop (Djungel Run variation) Clockwise”
