Smooth gravel roads and a well-organized trail, a large urban nature reserve and Gothenburg's most central recreation area welcome the hiker on the second section of the Bohusleden trail.

Section 2 of the Bohusleden trail runs between Lake Stensjön in the District of Mölndal and Skatås, a large recreation area in Göteborg.

Just north of Lake Stensjön the trail passes the lake Norra Långevattnet. There is a lovely picnic spot here, with a beautiful view across the lake. The section then carries on towards Delsjön Nature Reserve, one of the largest and most centrally located countryside areas in Göteborg. At Delsjön, in addition to the Trail, there are also opportunities to take a canoe trip and swim from the beach or from the surrounding cliffs. There is a running track, a café and toilets at Skatås. 

Large parts of this section run along even surfaced woodland paths and is of easy to medium difficulty with a couple of shorter, slightly steeper parts. 

Surface: This section of the trail is a mix of dirt road, forest path and a little bit of asphalt road.

Time: It takes about 3 hours to walk this section

Do not miss: A visit to the castle Stora Torp and a stop for coffee in Skatås

How to get here: At Stensjön there is a parking space and just north of the start of the section there is bus stop called Kristinedal. A short distance from Skatås is the stop Welandersgatan, for both bus and tram.
