You go through dense woodland along paths along the edge of Lake
Raslången. The lake is long and narrow, but with a very irregular
form and is popular with canoeists. Just to the north of
Ransingatorpet you can find unusual fossils; petrified parts of
huge trees which lived here several million years ago.
At Skärsnäs the woodland is called Tassemarken (The Back of
Beyond) and level with the Skärsjöarna lakes, you walk past a
spruce tree shaped like a pillar (Pices abies f. columnaris). The
tree is like a giant Christmas tree, all packed up in a net.
This section approaches one of the largest lakes in Skåne, Lake
Immeln. Large and valuable pine trees grow along the shore. Lichens
and insects thrive here and if you visit in the late summer, there
are often lots of bilberries. Keep an eye out for black-throated
diver, osprey and goosander.
There is a small beach at Brotorpet where there is good chance of
coming across fossils or even a shark's tooth.
By the shore of Lake Filkesjön, the first dynamitard in Sweden
had his hideout. The "Beautiful Bengtsson" and his accomplice known
as "Tattooed Johansson", had built a den between some boulders and
had furnished it with a cooker, comfortable beds and flowery flock
At Brotorpet there was a flour mill and saw mill for planks and
shingles. The woodland provided the timber which was shipped over
the lake to be transported on. Between Lake Immeln and Lake
Filkesjön you can find the canal known as Edre Ström. If you follow
this, you come to a large stone arched bridge which leads to the
flour mill and sawmill. A bit to the east, there is an eel chest in
the middle of the river which is well worth a look.
