The Silverfallet-Karlsfors Nature Reserve is located at Billingen’s northern tip, about 13 km northwest of Skövde. The reserve is a beautiful forest area with a stream flowing through and falling 50 m down on a relatively short distance. There are a couple of larger waterfalls and very shallow small-stepped terraces. Here and there you can also stumble upon ruins of abandoned alum and lime quarries.
Silverfallet is perfect for somebody who enjoys short, casual hikes but likes to fully immerse themselves in the magic of natural world. On our way to the falls we met a spotted woodpecker fiercely pecking a tree stump in the search of bugs. The bird posed for a while and left. Soon after we reached the highest part of the falls – the terraces. The area is ideal for day camping; water babbles peacefully in the background. Lower parts are easy to reach by wooden stairs; there are at least 3 more waterfalls to see.
Since I always go for photos, I thought it would be nice to start recording short clips to capture the beauty of flowing water better.
