Description

Take a walk in Rysstad Turpark, nature park, just south of the centre of Rysstad. The park is signposted from Highway 9. From the car park, a path leads up the "Bakalian" hillside, past an old mill. Many places you will find benches where you can take a rest on your way up. At the top there is a delightful view of Rysstad. The path continues northwards, and you`ll come to a forest road with signposts indicating the way back to the car park.
Feeling warm after the walk? Take a dip in the river below the waterfall.
Completing the walk will take you about two hours. The trip will be suitable for nearly everybody, even though parts of it is a bit steep.
