This area with its various woodlands was developed on previously barren
wet marshland between 1932 and 1935 by two nursery owners in Stavanger with
a dream. The property was signed over to Jaeren Open Air Trust in 1980 and
1991 to preserve and develop as a nature park.
To the east and north sides of the lake, the trail is more exposed, undulating and rather soft sand in places, which makes the going a little tough. On the contrary, the trail on the south side is more sheltered through woodland, flatter and easier going.
Hike up Melsknuten on the northern side of the lake for fantastic views over South Jaeren.
