Rognsmoen is one of the most interesting prehistory areas in Namdalen, and when you follow the trail som areas goes through the prehistoric road. After the discovery of historical narratives we can establish that there have been people living on Rognsmoen in the early Iron Age, about 600-1000 years before christ. It have been located 34 burial mounds at Rognsmoen. In addition to dwellings and burial mounds there are many capture constructions and a prehistoric road.

Rognsmoen is on a icerand delta formed by the glacier during the late Ice Age. The surface covered all Formofoss, before Sanddøla dug down in the delta and formed Rognsmoen and Bjørgan on each side of the river. The area has a national conservation value because of the powerful gravel deposits which are among the most marked and visible we have. The area was preserved as Rognsmoen nature reserve in 1988.
