Date: Wednesday 7 sep 2016 - Friday 7 Sep 2018 Show map

A large part of the nature reserve in the area consists of the mountain, "Bock"-mountain who is located between three lakes. On the mountain grows old fire affected pine forest . To reserve also includes a smaller sub-area, about 2 km southeast of Buck Mountain. The superb location next "Bocksträsk" is a hearty fireplace with sun until the evening. The area also has a hunting hut but not for public use. Easily accessible by car almost the whole way to the barbecue area.

Old pine trees with fire trail

The vegetation in the area is poor because the soil is dry . Here thrive lingonberries. In the east , along the creek between Buck Swamp and Great Grouse Mountain Pond is a small spruce swamp area with densely grown spruce and lower herbs. Several of the older pines in the sanctuary bears traces of two fires, a few pines has also survived three fires . The recent fire is deemed to have taken place about 150 years ago.
