40. Dragsviken - Mellsjön, 4 km

Start: N 58°37.965' E 017°00.301'. No parking at the start. Possible to park by Lake Långsjön wetland, approx. 1 km away.
Shelter: Lake Mellsjön - N 58°38.383' E 016°58.070'

A moderately difficult section, which starts with a steep ascent up the mountain Dragsberget. The trail continues through a ravine up to the ridge. In Winter, good views across the coastal landscape.

After around 1 km through sparse, flat rock forest, you reach a huge cairn "Stora Jättekasten". On the top of the cairn is a boundary stone. Through the forest you catch a glimpse of the farm Lilla Torskhult with a 17th century ridge cottage.

Continue to the road to Stora Torskhult, passing a hollow "fertility oak".

After a short walk through forest, you reach the shore of Lake Mellsjön and a beautifully located shelter. Here it´s also possible to camp. A few minutes walk away is a toilet.

The section ends at the road to Östra Kovik, where there is a parking place.
