From Rumskulla (north of Mariannelund) in northen part of Kalmar County, drive northwest about
9 km to Grönsved. Pass the village and contine uphill. Park just before reaching the crest, either
on the left or the right side. There is a possibility to reverse into the field at the P in the map
and this way get off the road. Or you can just turn into the small road across the road.
Hike from the P along the road, pass the crest and reach a stone wall with really big stones.
Turn right across the meadow behind the stone wall and hike in the direction of the pine trees
on the other side of the meadow. The highpoint is about 130 m from the road, behind the trees,
and it has a triangle marker. The rock in the picture above is about 2 m high and it is actually higher
than the highpoint.
Situated in the neighbourhood is The Kvill Oak or the
Oak at Rumskulla
that is said to be the oldest tree in Sweden with 1000 years. Pay a visit to a National Park when passing by.
National Park is northeast of Grönsved.
