The 3,6-kilometre-long marked trail Sjöslingan begins by Osaby nature reserve’s parking place. The trail leads through an area where the trees, to a large extent, fell due to Hurricane Gudrun in early 2005.

Today leaves grow on the uprooted trees that made up a dense spruce forest a decade ago. A new landscape is forming and continuously changes shape. The walk also offers a nice view over the lake Vederslövssjön’s shore, and the possibilities to experience both black-throated loon and osprey. Sometimes the European pine marten makes an appearance. Read more about the trail on p. 256 in the book Åsnens Natur – Din Guide till unika upplevelser. (Currently, the book is only available in Swedish. To be released in English later in 2017.)
