This section is easy to hike. The first 2 km are along the edge of the forest, and overlook the open countryside. After Hult Farm the trail goes into easy to hike forest terrain, and after about 3 km becomes slightly hillier.

Section 36:3 from Fada connects from the West, section 44 continues to the right and goes in part on a 10 km marked jogging trail. A small hill overlooking Bergshammar provides a pleasant change from forest walking. Shortly after there is a fresh water spring.

500 metres west of Ryssbergen the connecting section 44:1 to Oxelösund begins. An alternative route to Lindbacke via Svanviken Nature Reserve starts here also. Together with the main trail it forms a circular route Lindbacke-Stora Kungsladugård-Ryssbergen.

On the main trail a stretch of cultural interest begins. Firstly, on the other side of Kila stream a medieval defence tower followed by an Iron Age burial ground from where the path turns off on to Bergshammar Road.

At Stora Kungsladugård the connecting section 44:2 to Hållet begins. The main trail continues past Stora Kungsladugård and out in to Lindbacke Nature Reserve with its varied nature, bird life and historical remains, including an Iron Age maze.
