“This trail passes one of the gems of Sörmlandsleden Trail—"Mt" Gullängsberget.”— Johan Ahlberg
The southern position and calcareous ground along the fault precipice has resulted in a herb-rich flora with a number of southern plants, e.g. ivy. Before the section end, you pass an area of ancient monuments including 3000-year old graves and stone settings from the Bronze Age.
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 hikers 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 hikers 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.
