Sandsjöbackaleden is a longer hiking trail in Sandsjöbacka natural reserve south of Gothenburg. The trail is 22km, and even if it was intended for hiking, mountainbiking is permitted. The terrain is a rugged with many climbs and descents even if the altitude isn't so high this close to the sea. After Sisjön and Oxsjön this trail has more wilderness feel to it than most riding areas in Gothenburg. The few times you encounter hikers you can expect a smile and perhaps a nice chat if you pass them with respect on the narrow trail. Don't expect a perfectly flowy ride here, but a close to nature adventure.
