Tjustleden, Stage 9 Lermon–Kolsebro–Falerum

Date: Friday 3 jun 2016 - Tuesday 4 Sep 2018 Show map

Tjustleden is a hiking trail which meanders throughout the whole of Västervik municipality. The total length of the trail is 203 km, and it is divided up into nine stages. Tjustleden offers the hiker a varied and beautiful terrain through forests and cultivated land.

The last stage crosses over and runs through Uknadalen, which is perhaps the most beautiful of the valleys along Tjustleden. The trail starts on pleasant forest roads and, after a while, you may like to go onto the connecting trail to Ukna, which has excellent views across Uknadalen. If you instead choose to continue north you will soon arrive at Kolsebro, which is a village of great cultural and historic value. Shortly afterwards, the trail will take you up a steep hill to the top of the mountain, where you can enjoy the fantastic views. You can then make a little detour to visit the stone circles with their huge standing stones. You reach the end of this stage of the trail through forest paths, with an easy terrain, on your way to Falerum and Östgötagränsen, where Östgötaleden (the Östgöta Trail) takes over.
