Observera att ledmarkeringen längs denna stig är bristfällig. Vissa sträckor längs leden kommer du att hitta gamla ledmarkeringsbrickor på träden, men inte överallt. Stormfällda träd har också gjort att leden dragits om, vilket gör att ledmarkeringarna inte alltid stämmer exakt. Håll gärna ett öga på den digitala kartan om du är osäker.

Description

The Bornsjön nature trail is a 4.5 km long trail that takes you through the hilly forests and open fields that surround Sturehov Manor. The trail begins by the East Bergaholm entrance, with the trailhead located at the quarry just behind the parking lot. During the early 1900s, stone was extracted here to build macadam roads. The Bergaholm grave field lies just a bit further down the trail. The impressive linden trees along the avenue at Skårby should not be missed! A branch off the main trail takes you up to the Skårby grave field where you will find huge graves and an expansive vista—offering views of Södertälje and beyond.

Part of the trail follows the shores of Lake Bornsjön. Since Bornsjön is a reservoir for Stockholm's drinking water, swimming and fishing is prohibited.

There are parking spaces, a picnic area, a grill and an informational sign by the trailhead. There are multiple opportunities to take a shortcut if you'd like to do a smaller hike. The trail is hilly.
