An intermediate section with alternating forest, open terrain and some inclines.

The trail starts out across old infields, pastures and leaf tree gathering. At the viaduct Glindran-Strångsjö one enters into a 200 year old growth forest area - Mossängen - which was largely destroyed by the autumn storms of 1969. Thereafter one reaches the settlement Hjulbo at the lake Hålvetten with picnic area and possibilities for swimming. From the lake, it is a sharp incline up into a forest area.
At the downhill towards the lake Näsnaren is a natural spring and at the shoreline a shelter and a toilet are found. A little further on lies the nature-scenic island Fagerön. There is communal bathing and a toilet. The trail continues across the bridge up to the section end.

Nice places for a picnic: Near the section start at Lake Viggaren. After Hjulbo is a short detour to a hill where one has a magnicent view over Lake Näsnaren. At the wind shelter. Island Fagerö.

Good places for a tent: Island Fagerö (several places) and next to the wind shelter.

Parking along the section: Where Sörmlandsleden crosses the road that goes between Glindran and Strångsjö. The bridge at Lake Näsnaren.
No parking where the sections 29 and 30 meet.
