From the church you follow the highway to Norrbyn, where the trail turns onto a smaller road northeast, leading to the main road, which you follow for a short distance before heading straight north towards Rotemo and Hårgaberget.

After this, you continue along a smaller road and path, along the beautiful river Ljusnan up to Landabanan. A little further on, there is a road on the left that leads to the first bridge over Ljusnan, in front of Segersta church.

Before the bridge, about 1.5 km from the church, accommodation is possible. You can connect to the trail by bus in Kilafors and Sibo, and by train in Kilafors.
