Utsikt över Sandsjön från vindskyddet

This section goes via Kvarnforsen and resembles the previous one with lakes, coniferous forests and marshes. On its way south the trail follows a country road on the Baggåsen peak, which lies nearly 50 metres above its surroundings. At Ynnabo it turns south and enters a landscape dominated by lakes, coniferous forests and marshes. The area is full of wildlife, with elk, roe deer, forest birds and seabirds. The last part of this section follows the Rive Fylleån valley up to the shelter in Gyltige.

Things worth seeing on this stage:

Mjälahults Chapel

Ynnaboeken (old oaktree)

Lurehus (old small house)


Shelters are to be found at Sandsjön, Kvarnforsen and Gyltige campsites. The shelter can accommodate 4–6 adults. There are a fireplace and a composting toilet here.
