You walk through a transition zone which was classified as
unsuitable for timber or ploughing - but mostly used for grazing,
where broadleaved and spruce woodlands alternate with one another.
Glades with grazed pasture or remains of houses pop up here and
there. The Trail follows a boardwalk over the quaking bog
Sjömossen. Typical bog plants grow here, such as round-leaved
sundew, which gets its nutrition from insects. On a stony path you
pass the cliff called Hjällen, which consists of amphibolite. There
is an unusually rich beech woodland with a wide diversity of
lichens, mosses and insects on the slope. The site is classified as
a woodland key habitat.
Northwest of the circular trail, the clear water from Hanakällans
spring runs faithfully, and further south, you walk over a dam. The
large pond has been restored to clean the water and encourage a
richer animal life.
The area of Fulltofta is well known for the many fossil fields
it contains. The megalithic tomb reflects that Stone Age man used
also the area. A bit further south, there is a large burial ground
from the Iron Age.
Fulltofta originates from a country estate and this is clear to
see. During the 1600s and onwards, the estate developed their own
small community and the landscape is littered with the remains of
smaller farms, crofts, small cottages and mills etc.
Information signs along this section describe more. You pass for
example an outdoor dance floor made of stamped earth, where both
the gentry and the country folk amused themselves. At the nature
and information centre there is a newly built mill to visit.
