There are lots of gravel roads, lots of woodland and lakes for swimming at either end of the section. Keep your eye out for giant trees and Ängskrona. A rejuvenated recreation area with lots of recreational activities.

Nature

You walk along gravel roads and the odd footpath along this section, through woodlands and past more open areas. To the north there is a flowering meadow, which is carefully cut for hay and close to with Maglö you can enjoy some ancient oaks. At Slättaröd there is grazed woodland and to the south, areas of deciduous woodland with unusual plants and animals living within; including an exciting steep cliff, which is now a woodland key habitat.
At Frostavallen Recreation Area, originating from the 1930s, you can find old volcanoes, species rich beech woodland and pastures. One part of the route takes you alongside one of the enclosures in Skåne's zoo, where you can hear the calls of different animals from Scandinavia.
Both Lake Lillsjödal and Lake Vaxsjön are excellent for swimming.

Cultural History

From Maglö manor in the north to ruins of simple crofts in the south. You come across impressive ruins in several places. One of these ruins is Roséns, where the house was above the stable to take advantage of the warmth from the animals. Note the magnificent hornbeam trees nearby. At Åkarp there is a stone wall as high as a man, so strong that it should be able to withstand a whole army.
The ruins you pass to the south are more discrete. The small crofts were often inhabited by people that were single, poor or ill. A blind broom maker, a sick farmhand and a priest. Within the ring of the seven maples, once an arbour, the priest got his inspiration.
