You are far away from any houses and the route follows winding small roads and footpath over the flat top of the Linderödsåsen ridge. Valuable wetlands, extensive woodlands and ancient habitats conceal displaying black grouse and leagues of pro-Danish partisans.

Nature

You follow gravel roads past Timan and a winding path alongside the edge of Viss Mosse bog. The woodland has an old-growth character and several birch trees are hanging somewhat askew or are lying on the ground. When you have passed through the pasture at Kromsö a winding road takes you through an ancient and open landscape.
South of Brännestad you follow a path out into the grazed landscape. There are lots of stones, juniper bushes, traditional wooden fences and large trees with spreading crowns. In the summer you may meet those that work here; the grazing animals. Follow the path and visit the bird tower by Fjällmossen. Sometimes you can see black grouse displaying on the bog.
Forestry roads take you past a monotonous forestry plantation and at Abullaberga you follow a footpath through a grazed woodland. Bouquet shaped trees and bushes show that the site has been grazed over a long period.
You pass by woodland and several water courses on small forestry tracks until you reach the camp site at Rebbetuaröd. The land around the village is varied with grazing, arable fields, beech woodland and water. Many rare and threatened butterflies thrive here.

Cultural History

.Skogen Timan belonged to King Valdemar, according to the tax records from 1231.
At the bog Viss Mosse, peat is harvested, but on the eastern edge, there is a raised area called Kromsö (the island of Krom). There was a large woodland out on the island and this secluded location was a hide out for a group of Pro Danish partisans. It is said that they were reduced down to one man by the angry local peasants.
The "historical road" through Harphult follows the lie of the land, and this was how roads were built in the past.
In the grazed woodland and pastures at Abullaberga there are several interesting remains. In the beech woodland there is a flax processing cottage, by the stream there is a mill stone from the old mill and higher up, the impressive stone ruins of the farm. Further along the Trail you pass by more ruins, mostly from small crofts. 
The area around Rebbetuaröd is a gold mine for those interested in historic monuments. Here you can find the remains of farms, a beautiful old arched bridge, a ruined mill and several small earth cellars.
