Description: Old road to Åheden that continues to Brännvattnet. The route passes through varied terrain that can offer great nature experiences.

Good to know: The association house found in Risåkläppen is a barrack that was put up by Robertsfors Bruk, after two large residential houses burned to the ground, and a family became homeless. This later became a chapel after a new house was built in 1952.

Attractions: old settlement in Åheden from the mid-19th century.
At most 20 people lived in the village. Today only a small island cottage remains. It may be the first house built there. Then there are several house foundations that show where the settlement was.
