A nice hiking trails begins at Jät’s swimming area. Three different routes make it possible to choose between walking 8, 9 or 12 kilometres. Markings and signs will guide your journey. The trail passes a nice bird observation/lookout tower by Lake Åsnen, as well as Jät’s old church, which is one of the Värend area’s best preserved Middle Age churches. The black-throated loon and the osprey are often seen in the area, while viper’s-grass, greater butterfly-orchid, and common bird’s-foot trefoil grow close to Sandvik. The trail is prepared by Jät’s village community. More information on p. 230 in the book Åsnens Natur – Din Guide till unika upplevelser. (Currently, the book is only available in Swedish. To be released in English later in 2017.)
