Section 15:2 and part of section 15, approx. 9,5 km

Start: Skottvångs gruva. GPS: N 59°10.936'  E 017°08.112'

The route goes down to the mining site, where it turns and passes King Carl XVI Gustaf’s wind shelter. On the right, you see slag piles. After approx. 2 km, we recommend a detour to the Iron Age hill fort.
The route continues through varied forest areas, one of which has been left untouched since the storm "Gudrun". Take your time and enjoy the wonderful surroundings as you descend to the shore of Lake Mellan-Marviken. Here you find a rest area with wind shelter and fireplaces.
The route turns onto section 15 towards Skottvång and up on the plateau Stenhuggarmon, 92 metres above sea level, where there is a lookout tower. Here you can also see a distinct shoreline from around 5 000 years BC, when the Baltic Sea was called the Littorina Sea.
The walk continues southwards on old paths and haulage roads and onto the old railway embankment that carried trains with iron ore between Skottvång and Åkers styckebruk up until World War II.
