33. Lövsjöns sydspets - Brytsebo, 8 km

Start: N 58°40.812'   E 016°28.679'. Parking available
Water : Well at Ålkärrsdrogen - N 58°40.446' E 016°30.399'
Shelter: At the section end, near Brytsebo, there is a detour of approximately 600 metres down to Bråviken. - N 58°38.719' E 016°33.186'

Suitable places to take a rest can be found at the well, 3 km in from the start (Ålkärrsdrogen) and at the shelter and bathing place (section 33.1) at Bråviken. From the heights above Bråviken you have magnificent views.

The section starts with around 700 metres on a gravel road before entering more demanding and changeable terrain in a beautiful forest. There is a natural spring with  water after about 3 km.

The later part of the section is one of the most demanding stretches of Sörmlandsleden although it is possible to avoid it by refering to a notice board by the trail. The pain of the original and steeper route will earn you the reward of splendid views over Bråviken and an excellent bathing spot. Further rewards for the adventurous include an interesting stand of Scots pine and the disused blast furnace at Skvätta.

Immediately before the section end there is a bye path to Rövargrottan (Bandit cave) which is actually on section 33:1, something worth visiting, especially if you have children with you.
Parking is possible at the section end.
