This nature reserve of about 4 hectares was formed in 1963 to save a geologically interesting area with rich flora and a near park-like character near the Dals-Ed train station.
The most common name for this little reserve in the middle of Ed is Skansen, after the little fortification that lies just outside the reserve. Skansen is a lush, deciduous birch grove on the slope down towards Stora Le. The ending is part of an end moraine from the last ice age. A nature trail leads through the area.
The forest is dominated by oak and is the county's northernmost oak forest.
