Description

Section 13 begins at farm/rest spot Risön in the northern part of nature reserve Florarna, and ends in the small mill village of Lövstabruk.
The trail follows a gravel road for 1.5 kilometres before turning onto a forest path that takes you to the Lake Finnsjön. Along the shore, you’ll find lots of spots where you can go for a swim. Just after the rest spot at the northern part of the Lake Finnsjön, the trail leaves the path, and follows the gravel road again for 3 kilometres, through forests and past occasional houses and farms. At the Nybron Bridge, the trail turns onto an old railway embankment. After 2.5 kilometres of walking through the forest, you’ll get back onto the road. Now, there are just a few kilometres left to the end of the section, at the other side of road 76. Beyond the swimming spot at Lövstabruk are the village’s old tied homes and manor. Lövstabruk has an inn, accommodation and a beach.

Difficulty level: Easy, mostly different kinds of roads, a few kilometres on forest paths.
