Sveaskog - responsible for the Omberg Ecopark - has created two MTB trails, one on the north side of the mountain with start and finish at Drottning Ommas Castle (5,4 km) and one on the south side with start and finish in Stocklycke (12 km or 9 km respectivly).
The paths run counterclockwise over short asphalt stretches, forest paths, cleared paths and individual hiking trails. Please note that the trails are shared with pedestrians - show consideration and give the hikers priority!
Attention! In Sveaskog's current maps from 2021, the following drawn routes deviate from the actual course: Östgötaleden on the north-east side of Omberg, Cycle Route North on the north-east side of Omberg and Cycle Route South past Höje.
