From this section paths start toward Huddinge, section 6:1, and toward Nynäshamn, section 5:3. Ruins from old cottages bear witness to the time when our forests were populated. The countryside is both varied and rich in vegetation. A longer part of the path follows a road.

When you arrive at the drained Lake Kvarnsjön you enter an area of great geological and zoological values. Here you also find a picnic place. Just after the former Lake Kvarnsjön, a bit north of the path, you find a stream that meanders along a broad ravine bottom toward Lake Bysjön which is a kettle hole. Thousands of years ago, when the rivers of melt water shaped the boulder ridges,large icebergs were often embedded into the gravel. When the ice melted, crater-like cavities were formed.

South of the path in the Pålamalm area there are additional kettle holes, one of which is among the largest in Sweden with a depth of 31 metres. After a walk along the stream Bockån the path rounds Lake Getaren and finds its way up on a plateau with beautiful views over the surroundings, just before the section endl.
