Start: N 58°58.362'   E 016°12.516'. Parking.

Connection trail between manor Stora Djulö and section 27.

Stora Djulö or "Western Djula" is already mentioned in 1334 in one of the National Archives kept changing letter, which states that the knight Sigge Magnusson at Lagmansö takes over the property from the nuns in Vårfruberga. Stora Djulö is also one of the main places in the chapter about the lovely garden in Selma Lagerlöf's book about Nils Holgersson.

We follow the road past Stora Djulö, crosses Djulö avenue with its "statarbostad" and see soon the steep hill Gatstuberg, where according to legend Gatstuberg goblins lived. Gatstuberg is a good place for a rest. The road climbs steeply past a residential area and passes the beautiful Woodland Chapel, which opened in 1980th.

the trail turns right into the woods and up on a hill. On top of the hill is a wind shelter and a rest area with benches. From here you have a beautiful view over Lake Djulösjön.

Parking possibility at the section end.
