This section starts at the former storage building Magasinet Gula kvarn ("the Yellow Mill") in Nävekvarn.
For the first part of this trail, you run along the road for about 1.5 km before the trail goes steeply uphill onto Fyrberget. At the top of Fyrberget, there is a picnic table where you can enjoy the nice view. The trail continues through beautiful coastal nature, and you'll soon reach the bathing area at Skeppsvik.
Then the trail continues into the Sjöskogen Nature Reserve. Here you can choose if you want to continue on the track close to the coast, or if you want to run around the mountain by taking the northern-most track. You'll soon reach Svartåhällen, a resting area in a beautiful setting, with barbecue possibilities.
The run continues along the shore of Bråviken and up over some smaller heights. Right at the very end of this section there is an old smithy.
About the Sörmlandsleden Trail
Sörmlandsleden, with more than 1,000 kilometers of winding paths through the county of Sörmland, is one of the longest long-distance path in Scandinavia. The 100 or so sections of the path take runners through wilderness, areas of cultural tradition and past historical monuments. There is everything from open landscape, wilderness, lakes, and beautiful coastline. Most of the sections are easily accessible by car, bus, or train and each section offers a suitable starting point. For accommodation, there are shelters and for rest stops, there are picnic areas.
The Sörmlandsleden Trail is marked with orange trail markings. Usually, the mark is an orange circle around a tree or pole. Road crossings are marked with orange S-arrows. In population centers, you follow orange stickers, usually placed on lampposts. Planks and footbridges take runners across sensitive and waterlogged areas. You also find signs that indicate spring (källa), shelter (skärmskydd) or privy (dass).
The Sörmlandsleden Trail is maintained by an association. Members of the Sörmlandsleden Association work as volunteers to keep the trail in the best possible order. One person is responsible for each section.
