Trail details

  • Length 10.0 km



Just like section 19, this section is a historic church path. The section, which is also called The Ljusbäck Trail, starts at Nora Church in Tärnsjö, and reaches nature reserve Ӧsta. The hike starts with around one kilometre on gravel roads. Then, you turn onto a forest road, and, eventually, a less trodden path. Beyond farm Ulebo, the trail reaches the edge of the vast Nordmyran Bog, and at times, you’ll walk on foot bridges. Rest spot Stenharsudd, which is at the halfway point of the section, has a view of Lake Nordmyrasjön.

A more rugged section awaits before you enter the pine forest of nature reserve Ӧsta. You can make two detours here, either to nature reserve Ingbo Källor, or to a parking area at Ljusbäck. Finally, the landscape opens up, and you’ll reach nature reserve Ӧsta. There is a campsite with a kiosk and swimming spots at Ӧsta.

Difficulty level: Medium, a bit of road at the beginning, otherwise small forest paths.
