The Uppland Trail, Section 1:1, 13.5 kilometres
The Uppland Trail section 1:1, which shoots off from section 1, starts at Lunsentorpet inside nature reserve Norra Lunsen. The Lunsentorpet cottage, where you can rest and stay overnight, is always open to visitors, but you can’t book it. The section ends at the train and bus station in the town of Knivsta.
At the beginning, the hike follows paths, going through lovely forests with flat rocks and wetlands. It continues along roads through open farmland before turning off into the forest again. After 8 kilometres, by Lake Branthammarsjön, you’ll reach a wind shelter on a hill with a view of the water. Before you get to the lake, you’ll pass through a pasture grazed by cows, where the marking poles aren’t so close together, so keep an eye out for them there.
There is a train and bus station in Knivsta, as well as shops and restaurants.
Difficulty level: Easy, bigger forest paths, sometimes across flat rocks and boardwalks, as well as gravel roads/country roads.
