Leden går mer västerut över berg med sagolik utsikt till Söder- och Nederhögen, kallas Högen, en gammal kulturbygd med jordbruk sedan 1300-talet. I Högen finns det enda bevarade minnesmärket i Jämtland från Baltzarfejden, daterat 1611.

Vidare från Söderhögen (där det kan finnas övernattningsmöjligheter) nordväst över myr och mo, längs stigar och skogsbilvägar till Kilkojan, den mest omnämnda kojan för skogsarbetare. I början av 1900-talet huserades arbetare till 115 hästar som arbetade i skift för att nyttja sov- och vilkojan.

VId Kilkojan kommer Stråsjöleden från Korsholmen, Enånger in på Kårböleleden/Helgonleden.
