The trail first runs through a varied natural landscape with heather-covered moors, wetlands and gravel eskers, past lakes and across streams. At Vippentorpet, a traditional Halland cabin, you can gain interesting insights into how the people of Halland used to live in earlier times and into their traditions. Hjörneredssjöarna is a popular outdoor recreation area for rambling and paddling. The second half of this section runs through partly cultivated and open agricultural land.
