Around the starting point Vassbovik, nature is hilly but relatively nice.

From there, the trail follows one of the tracks to a sports field in Stenhult. From here, the trail continues a couple of kilometers across open at the edge of the field, and then return to varied forest and agricultural environments.

Surface: This section is mainly on dirt road and forest paths, and in the ens some asphalt.
