Storaana Riverside Walking Trail

This beautiful and peaceful riverside trail, for easy walking or cycling, runs for 3km southwards from Sandnes (next after Sandnes Sentrum) railway station to Ganddal railway station. There are several playgrounds, including the favourite Sandved Park, along the route.
