Geocache Description:

Railroad rapids

Forsa rapids

Forsa fall ligger mellan vägen (Rävlanda - Bollebygd) och järnvägen. Den nyare järnvägen är en del av kust-till-kust-banan, medan brofundamenten är allt som återstår av den gamla järnvägsbron över Nolån. I Forsa fall ligger även ett litet vattenkraftverk. Under regniga delar av året kan vattenflödet bli mycket högt och fallet är då spektakulärt både att se och att höra.

The rapids at Forsa are situated between the road between Bollebygd and Rävlanda and the railroad. The modern railroad connects Bollebygd and Borås with Gothenburg but visible in the forest is also a stone foundation which is all that remains of an older railway bridge over the creek. A small hydro power plant was built in the rapids in 1991. During high floods a very large amount of water passes through here, something that can be spectacular both to see and to hear.
