At the beginning we are accompanied by the Muota, the torrent that gave the valley and the village its name. Along the dam there is also a quarry where marble was mined in the 70s and 80s of the last century. Today, the demolition site and a crane still remind us of it. We leave the dam and walk over a spring area, which is a little swampy in summer. In winter the springs, wells and streams bear witness to the underground water. If you want, you can make a detour to the Husky Lodge, the home of 30 sled dogs. Or follow the route and make your way back in a wide arc. Behind the hydroelectric power station the earth suddenly seems to tremble. But it is only the vibration of the water that thunders into the power station under pressure in a tube. The ascent ends in Fugglen, the highest point of the route, where you can enjoy a view of the entire village and the Heubrig chain. The longest and only downhill slope brings you back to the starting point. The route is signposted and also a pleasure in the opposite direction.Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator
