Trail details

  • Length 11.5 km



Section 1:0 starts at the Studenternas IP’s sports ground in central Uppsala, and ends at the
Sunnerstaåsen recreation area close to Lake Mälaren.

The hike begins with a fairly steep hike up the Kronåsen Ridge. At the top, you’ll find a barbecue spot
and the Sten Sture monument, a large bronze sculpture by Carl Milles. Carry on downward through
the pine forest towards the River Fyrisån, before passing university area Polacksbacken, reaching the
Kronparken Park. Kronparken is home to Sweden’s best population of Scots pines, many over 300
years old.

The path winds its way onward through forests, open areas and pastures to Uppsala’s
southernmost residential areas. At the Skarholmen Peninsula, the trail turns eastward. It mostly
follows the shore of Lake Mälaren, past the beaches Lyssnaängsbadet and Sunnerstabadet,
towards the end of the section. There is a rest spot, a dry toilet and a parking area at the
Sunnerstaåsen recreation area.

Difficulty level: Easy, mostly easy-to-walk paths, but also some slightly rugged paths with rocks and roots.
