About Grytåsa

Grytåsa is small recreation area for shorter walks. Möllers woodland is one of only a few woodlands which are grazed and you meet grazing animals in the summer. There is a rich birdlife around Lake Flinka and from the esker north of the lake you get a wonderful view across the site. The Skåneleden Trail passes through the area.
