Knivsås-Borelunds Naturreservat

Nature reserve near Torna Hällestad

Knivsås-Borelunds Naturreservat is a 160-hectare nature reserve near the village Torna Hällestad, about 4 kilometers east of Dalby.

The nature reserve is characterized by a gently rolling landscape that emerged at the end of the last Ice Age, when the melting glacier deposited its cargo there, consisting boulders, gravel and sand. The moraine, called Knivsås, is part of the larger ridge Romelåsen and crosses the nature reserve Knivsås-Borelund.

The ridge is wooded and the gentle slopes are ancient pasture areas with individual trees and bushes as well as a great variety of wildflowers. Several marked trails leading through the area and at the southern end of the nature reserve is an exciting bathing lake in front of the impressive backdrop of the former stone quarry Dalby Stenbrott.
