Forest hike to Heggmokulpen

This is a short little forest hike that starts at the parking lot far up by the road Vatnveien in Bodø, with the endpoint being a deep pool called Heggmokulpen. The big parking lot is located on the right side of the road, just after passing the power station on the left side. From here there is a hiking trail all the way to the deep pool, the distance from the parking lot to the endpoint is only 900 meters which take about 12 minutes. This is a popular bathing spot on sunny summer days, so expect other people to be here as well. There are also other nice spots to take a swim at further down and above the pond
