Section: 6 Jällabjär - S Hultarp

The route takes you along boardwalks through wet forests and along footpaths through pastures and hills covered in broadleaved woodland. This section offers geological refreshment and extraordinary countryside in the form of volcanic remains and the largest juniper woodland in Skåne. Between Djupadal and Södra Hultarp Nature Reserve, you walk along a small gravel road.

Nature

Winding paths lead you up over the remains of the volcano Jällabjär. A hundred metres north of the triangulation point, you see the remains of the vents in the crater, hexagonal pillars made of basalt. Via a boardwalk you go on towards open pastures with stone walls and the village of Anderstorp.
A jumble of footpaths criss-cross Eneskogen, so you need to pay attention to make sure you follow the Trail here. Juniper grows in abundance here, some like pillars. There are also ancient beech trees here and there.
When you reach Natthall, views and broadleaved woodland await you. Yellow anemone, coral root, garlic mustard, hairy violet and cowslips thrive on the slopes. A kilometre or so to the north there is a basalt tuff, a piece of lava that was thrown out of the crater and landed here.
You pass over the River Rönne å on a swaying bridge. The river extends from Ringsjön to Skälderviken and has good spawning grounds for salmon.
The rest of this section follows a winding gravel road through an extensively farmed landscape.

Cultural History

The village of Anderstorp is historically interesting. The village avoided the enclosure reforms in the 1700s and 1800s and thus has maintained the old character where the houses are close together and irregularly placed along the village road. During the war in Skåne, the village was a battlefield.
The River Rönne å has functioned as a transport route and the power of the water has been used to drive mills and industries. This includes Stockamöllan which developed a small village industry around the mill and saw works. Many barges travelled between Klippan and Skälderviken.
