A lovely but though ride out to Balestjärn and Balesudden Natural reserve in the High Coast Area. Steep climbs/descents through rock gardens and root mats combine with lovely trail riding. A though effort but you'll get your price when you reach the small lake with crystal clear water and if you continue all the way out to the Balesudde you'll have the whole High Coast within view.

       Detta är nog en av dom roligaste stigarna jag, att det sen var vackert gör ju inget-)
      Men du ska nog ha viss vana för att köra, för den va trixig på ett kul vis på en hel del partier.
