2. Skogshyddan - Alby friluftsgård, 6,5 km

Start: N 59°15.857' E 018°12.673'. Parkering vid Erstaviksvägens vägbom, 400 m väster om etappstart.

Bus 801/811 from Gullmarsplan to Älta/Lovisedal (Bäckalidsvägen). From the bus stop it is about a 15 minute hike in a northeasterly direction along Erstaviksvägen, see map.

The cottage, known as Skogshyddan (translates to Forest cottage), was long ago a so called boatswain's cottage. Here a boatswain, serving in the Navy, lived with his family. The family name of the boatswain was always Skog (Forest). The house is owned by Erstavik but is at the disposal of Nacka Recreation Committee.

From Skogshyddan the section follows a forest track and you will soon pass the cottage Vretatorp. From there, you walk for around 1.5 km through oak and pine forests and fields to the northern end of Lake Öringesjön and the cottage Skomakartorp. Both cottages are former crofs cottages, now owned by Erstavik. From the house, the path follows the shore to the lake's southern end where there is a beach.

From Öringe village there are frequent bus connections between Stockholm and Tyresö. The trail passes under the road Tyresövägen and into Alby nature reserve. You arrive into a forest area, follow a stream and its valley, hike past the meadows and you’ll soon find the beautifully situated boatswain cottage Alstorp. The cottage is now renovated for Tyresö Folklore society. Two grave fields from the younger Iron Age are located in the vicinity of Uddby farm. Shortly thereafter, you reach the destination for this section, Alby recreation area, where you find a beach, jogging tracks and a cafeteria.
