There are 17 stages to choose from along Bergslagsleden (The Bergslag Trail) all of which are designed so as to be able to be completed during one day of hiking in Sweden, though levels of difficulty vary.
Bergslagsleden is marked with orange rings painted on trees or poles. Signs are present when the trail branches or crosses a road. The trail stretches from Kloten in the north to Stenkällegården in the south, a total length of 280 km. Roughly half-way through each stage there is a wind shelter with fire ring and dry toilet.
At some of the rest areas, at Bergslagsleden trash receptacles have been removed, especially in cases where it is too far for the management to transport the garbage. Additionally, rubbish management is quite costly these days. We therefore ask you to “leave no trace" and take all of your garbage with you when leaving a rest area. Trail descriptions and maps are available for every stage. Regionförbundet Örebro is responsible for the trail.
Bergslagsleden is maintained by non-profit organizations that manage trail markings, rest areas, etc. Bergslagsleden welcomes you! Relax, appreciate the silence and enjoy!
Great efforts have been made so that the Bergslag Trail can offer reasonable lodging alternatives, from wind shelters to lodging at nearby recreation centers. Lodging alternatives are available in one form or another in nearly every stage. The length of each stage is shown in the table below.
