Fäboda-Pörkenäs' nature trail
The nature trail in Fäboda-Pörkenäs is a part of a 33 km long hiking trail network. The information boards along the trail will present the local flora and fauna as well as some human activities which have shaped the area.
Both the nature trail and the hiking trails start from the Torsviken trotting track in Vestersundsby. The nature trail runs clockwise through Lussilundsvägen, Mjölkvägen, Mässträsket, Degernästräsket, Långträsket, Svedja, Pörkenäs and Fäboda, returning to Torsviken.
On the trail map you can see where the camp fire places, huts and parking lots are located. You can easily dicover the trail in stages. It is possible to do short and easy day hikes or even overnight in one of the open wilderness huts along the trail.
