Section 46, 8 km
After the river Nyköpingsån you disappear into the forest. You pass graves from the Iron Age and may see planes approaching the runways at Stockholm/Skavsta Airport. Continue through forest towards pastureland at Lake Hovrasjön. At Söra, a former outdoor recreation facility, there are several jogging tracks, which lead you onto a main country road. Follow the road for 1 km before the Sörmlandsleden trail takes you back into the forest.
