The trail is easy to walk in the beginning of open pasture and then follow the hills and rocky outcrops in an otherwise gently hilly terrain.

From Kasholmsberget, with ancient fortifications, it is a nice vantage point of bird migration, spring and autumn. After about 500 meters you walk across pastures and planted woodlands. Another 2 km further on is a cairn on the left hand.

Following is a mountain route with fine views over the bay Norafjärden and Ledarön. Further on the route passes the road that goes in Mörkös longitudinally up on a mountain and on the heights overlooking Järna in north west, Hörningsholms castle on a cliff and in the north high-rise buildings in Södertälje. To the east and southeast is Torö visible and in very clear view even the Baltic sea towards Landsort. The trail winds its way on through the woodland of various ages and densities. At Mölleviken you can swim.

The trail continues through forest until Skanssundets ferry. In the west is Hörningsholm visible. The castle was built in the 1740s on the foundation walls of the medieval castle that was burnt down by the Russians in June 1719th
