Storängsudd is an old meadowland where animals still graze and keep the land open. Experience the wildflowers in the oak and linden groves, where elder-flowered orchid and snake's head fritillary flower in the spring.
The Storängsuddsleden trail takes you around the reserve and runs partly along the shore. There are plenty of rocks where you can stop and enjoy a view over the water, or from which you can take a swim in Baggensfjärden. There is a grave field from the Iron Age in the eastern corner of the reserve. To the west, there are a number of so-called "Russian ovens", outdoor stone ovens made by Russian invaders in the 1700s.
