Just outside Frösön Airport and Frösö Park lies the fine peninsula Bynäset, which offers Frösön’s perhaps finest cycling. There are about 8 km of slightly messy and technical trails that bring out the playfulness in you. The view of Lake Storsjön and the mountains is incredibly beautiful and constantly with you during the tour. If you choose to cycle the trail anticlockwise the trail will go slightly downhill. Along the trail there are places to rest and sit for a while and also several beaches to attend a nice summer evening. Bynäset was formerly a military exercise area and has been closed to the public for many years.
Three years ago, the trail that opened to the public and the municipality of Östersund has renovated it. Bynäset has quickly become one of the city’s finest recreational areas for cycling, hiking and running.
To reach Bynäset, follow the signs to Frösö Park then west towards Rödön. You then turn left onto Bynäsetvägen and after a few hundred meters following the road you will reach a large parking lot. The trail starts around Bynäset by passing the red portals.
A little outside of Östersund and Frösön lies Fugelsta. One of all small villages along Lake Storsjön. In a forest area above Marieby Church, there are world-class trails where firefighters have been building paths since 2008. There is something for everyone, young, old and beginners. There are no steep downhill slopes only fine flow on narrow paths through the forest down to the lake. Some trails are a bit more technically challenged with roots and blades while others are smooth and fast. The paths “Brunflow” and “Världsmästarstigen” offers dosed curves and some jumps you can roll over. Next to the forest edge there is also a pump track. Many of the trails have a sign with their name to help you find them.
The main trail of about 15 km is marked in red on the trees and starts next to the pump track and takes you up to Svartsjöarna and then turns back down again. You pass the very finest paths with short sections of transport on dirty roads. The trails are nice to ride even with a simpler mountain bike with cushioning at the front.
All Fugelsta’s trails can be found in the Trailforks app. On Facebook there are “Fugelsta cykelstigar” and there you can find more information.
To get to Fugelsta you cross the bridge Vallsundsbronand turn left towards Brunflo. Just before Marieby church, you should turn right and follow Svartsjövägen a bit up until you reach a sign with: Brunkulla lokal.
There you can park and reach the paths easily.
