Good connection points for those of you who do not want to walk the entire length of the Trail in one go are: Ystad, Simrishamn, Kivik and Brösarp. The stations and bus stops close to the recommended connection points are visible on the maps for each section. You can also search for connections from a starting point of your own choice.
