2. Firs and Sörmlandsleden

Previous Mainpage Next

Sörmlandsleden is a long trail that starts in the outskirts of Stockholm and then procedes through the whole province of Södermanland. I took the bike on the commuter train to Handen, then went out to Tyresta hamlet which is on the outskirts of the national park, and continued on Sörmlandsleden in to the forest, here dominated by firs. Sörmlandsleden is often suitable only for walking (see for instance pic 23), but this stretch is a small forest road, which is marvellous to ride the bike on.
