Gränna - MTB
If you are going mountainbiking in Gränna make sure you have plenty of time to find the hidden gems. Taking your road bike to Gränna is of course a great trip, however most cyclist head on to Uppgrenna or eastbound after a cosy coffee stop in between the wooden houses. If you, on the other hand, are on a mountainbike, and even better on a full suspension MTB you will find plenty of reasons to stay around. If you been cycling in Småland before, the contrast of the usual deep, green forests is quite nice, cause in Gränna you will get the feeling of a jungle, at least a Swedish version of it.
Even though the local orienteering club Grennabygdens OK´s marked a mountainbike route at Grännaberget recently you will see other signs that tells you MTB-trail lovers been in the area for awhile. Well-made berms and jumps mixed with carefully improved single track. Somebody made the extra effort to get the best out of each turn. Going to Gränna is not only about trying Grennabygdens XCO-track, instead go there with some extra time to spare, exploring the surroundings. Also cycling shorts might be better than cycling bibs. If you want to stay out of the forest you might enjoy Gränna Bike Park instead.
You will find the MTB-track, with two different routes, just by the café, Kaffestugan, at Grännaberget. After a great shrimp sandwich and coffee you will easily find your way around it.
But to find the hidden gems and best trails you will need time and maybe even the knowledge of a local. Read more about Gränna and how you could find the best MTB trails in the area.
