A varied and beautiful section passing through the paddocks, past several lakes, through forests and over some hills with beautiful rock outcrops.

The section goes down through grazing land to a wetland area. Down at the beach begins one of the trail's longest footbridges, 260 metres. On the other side of the wetland you will reach one of Sörmlands most impressive oak lands with a rich bird life. There are also several ancient sites and the huge boulder - Kammarstenen - Combs stone (about 300 metres from the trail along the road to Ånhammar N 59°08.156' E 016°54.799'). Soon after you passed the road there is a well with a pump (feed the pump with some water and it will work better).

After approx 3 km you will see the wind shelter of Ösjön, one of the most popular resting places of the trail. After this there are only a few km to Bågberget (Stonebridge) which is one of the most remarcable phenomena of the trail, a bridge of stone, 10 metres long, between two hill sides. The trail continues to Henardalen through forests and over some hills with beautiful rock outcrops.
Just before Henardalen is a natural spring and at the north-east point of the lake Västersjön  is a wind shelter.
