Trail main hiking@2x The Uppland Trail, section 6, 15.5 km

The hike begins at the beach by Lake Södersjön, and ends at the road into Knutby. It takes you almost exclusively through forest terrain, with only a couple of houses along the way. After about 500 meters, you’ll reach a meadow. Keep to the right to see where the trail goes. Then, you’ll walk on paths through a varied coniferous forest. After a vast clear-cut area, you’ll reach a section of uneven ground where tall grass grows in the summer.

After about 6 kilometers, you’ll reach Lake Kolsjön, which has a rich bird life. You can make a brief detour to the wind shelter which has a view of the water. You’ll continue along forest and country roads to more paths, first through dense and rocky forests, then more open forests with beautiful flat rocks. The remaining 3 kilometers are along a country road to Knutby.

Difficulty level: Medium, nice paths and a few kilometers on roads.
