Gyltige - Assman
Degree of difficulty
This section begins with an easy walk on the along the embankment of the former Bolmenbanan railway. The embankment runs along a rift valley containing four elongated lakes: Gyltigesjön, Töddesjön, Simlången and Brearedssjön. The Fylleån river flows through these lakes on its way to the sea. The trail turns south in the village of Simlångsdalen, and crosses Fylleån. The surroundings begin to change along the lovely Assman river, a tributary of Fylleån, turning to a mixed forest of pine and spruce, as well as oak, beech and birch. Take a break if you'd like at Danska Fall, where you can read how the waterfall got its name. Towards the end you enter the Gårdshult Nature Reserve, which contains both a wild natural landscape and older agricultural land that is still being farmed the old way.
