This is a wooded area a few minutes walk just north of the main town. Plenty of different elevations with some easy trails and some steeper that go to around a number of small lakes. Very popular for walking and jogging.

10min from Kvadraturen. A nice get-away to the norwegian forest. Quiet and many possible trails to Walk. Long or short walks. Also a beatyful view over Kristiansand. And if you want, you can take a swim in the lake.
