Description

The hike begins at the beach by Lake Södersjön, and ends at the road into Knutby. It takes you almost exclusively through forest terrain, with only a couple of houses along the way.
After about 500 meters, you’ll reach a meadow. Keep to the right to see where the trail goes. Then, you’ll walk on paths through a varied coniferous forest. After a vast clear-cut area, you’ll reach a section of uneven ground where tall grass grows in the summer.

After about 6 kilometers, you’ll reach Lake Kolsjön, which has a rich bird life. You can make a brief detour to the wind shelter which has a view of the water. You’ll continue along forest and country roads to more paths, first through dense and rocky forests, then more open forests with beautiful flat rocks. The remaining 3 kilometers are along a country road to Knutby.

Difficulty level: Medium, nice paths and a few kilometers on roads.
