The path to Röstvålen winds in the valley from Ramundberget west to the Norwegian border, partly along the northern shore of  the river Ljusnan. Follow the trail marked Gemtour 2 to Röstvålen, the same path as Gemtour 1 towards Klinken. The tour is red in severity, a total of 17.5 km long and with a height difference of 220 meters.

During the flowering season, nature offers a breathtaking flower splendor. In June, rolling sea of wood anemones fields shimmering in pink and beautiful purple. In July and August, the gymnademia and other orchids are common.

Along the path there are signs with information about pilgrim era between the 12th and 16th centuries. There are many nice places to stop and have a drink along Sveån, for example the wind shelter at Färdmansrösta.

On the detour to the brook ridge edge there are many small waterfalls and beautiful stream formations along the hillside. Nut of the view over Skarsfjället and Helagsmassivet.
