The Skåne Regional Council has primary responsibility for the Skåneleden Trail, in particular for development and marketing issues. The Scanian Landscape Foundation is responsible for the management of the Trail under contract from the Skåne Regional Council. The district councils are responsible for all practical management.
The Skåneleden Trail crosses to large extent privately owned
land. Over 1000 land owners have made their land accessible for
walkers. There are signed agreements between the land owners and
the relevant district councils. Each district council has
responsibility for the maintenance and upkeep of the part of the
Trail which travels through their district and also contact with
the land owners. The district councils have selected different ways
of managing the Trail - sometimes with their own staff and
sometimes via different organisations.
