Cycle routes The Skagaholm Route Skagaholm – Sisse hage – Rutehall – JA Ranch Start and finish at the beautiful and historically interesting Traryd Heritage Park and Zoo. Traryd’s fortlets in the heritage park are small fortifications. In the zoo you can see original species of farm animals of yesteryear. The route leads on to Skagaholm and the Sisse hage pasture, where there are remains from both the Iron Age and the Middle Ages. There is also a fine swimming pool. The route continues to Rutehall, an erratic boulder from the Ice Age that has since broken in half, exposing unusual fracture surfaces. At Lake Hinnerydssjön, there is an attractive swimming area and fishing pier (fishing licence required). Close by is the JA Ranch & Lodging guesthouse.
