Hellasgården is a nice recreation area offering several running trails in the woods and along the Källtorpssjön lake. It is located about 20 minutes by bus from downtown Stockholm — take bus 401 from Slussen to the Hellasgården stop in Älta. There are numerous other recreation facilities in the area, or options for a sauna or enjoying a sandy beach. Some of the trails have lights but note that in winter season, some of the trails are kept clean from snow while others are used for skiing, thus not suitable for running.
We’ve mapped an 8 km route starting just south of Järlasjön Lake. But you can create your own route on the extensive network of trails. Here’s a link for a trail map that can be downloaded.
