Along the northern section of the trail there are boulders lying
all over the place, all are geological sensations. A ten kilometre
long esker, a small waterfall and the troll's huge cliff, known as
Vedema Hall. The small fishing lake called Lake Barsjön, is formed
from a piece of stagnant ice, thousands of years ago.
At the bottom of the valley, the River Rökeån meanders along. In
the river, on the wet meadows and steep valley sides, there is all
manner of life.
Leave the wooded countryside in the north and enjoy the more and
more open areas with grazed pastures to the south. Flat and open
areas await you around Finja. By the River Almaån you enter into a
recreation area with many special trees. More than 400 years old
and home for many fungi and insects.
Despite the richness of boulders, there was a lack of fencing
materials and the earth banks at Vedema are typical of the area.
The water in the River Rökeån drove several water mills and by the
bridge there are the remains of a mill, wadmal loom and a sunken
There are several historical routes to discover along this
section. At the sandy hills by Jontustorp you reach the old highway
and milestone that Linneus passed by in 1749. When you walk over
the River Almaån, remember that this was once an important
crossing. The main highway, defences and Mölleröd fortress
surrounded by a moat were located here.
Mölleröd later became a crown estate with a large farm and there
are many ruins of the crofting cottages in the woodland. On the top
of the hill you can find ramparts from the time when the area was a
military training area. Very close by, the oldest known settlement
in Sweden has been found, from the Mesolithic period.
