38. Lilla Uttervik - Västra Kovik, 7 km

Start: N 58°37.363'   E 016°52.056'. Parking at section 37, approx. 200 metres before information board/section map. 
Drinking water: Uttervik. Tap at water treatment plant - N 58°37.351'  E 016°54.787'

The section starts at the old village smithy at Lilla Uttervik and continues through an area of disused mines.

A slow ascent through sparse rocky forest takes you to the top of Gullängsberget. Here you will see a large Viking grave from where you have a splendid view over the Baltic coast.

For those who do not want to walk up and over the mountain, there is a shorter alternative route to the North.

The southern position and calcareous ground along the fault precipice has resulted in a herb-rich flora with a number of southern plants, e.g. ivy.

Before the section end, you pass an area of ancient monuments including 3000-year old graves and stone settings from the Bronze Age.
