Further on the stage you will find the church of Forsa, which is well worth a visit, both for worship and to see the fine medieval sculptures in wood.
Leaving Forsa behind you, you will walk a longer distance on the embankment, and in Näsviken, you will pass the Tamm's canal.
The end of the stage is Hälsingegården Nirsgård, where overnight stays and meal can be arranged. Book well in advance!
Next to the chapel you will find the old flax mill factory from the end of the 19th century – the reason for both the chapel being built and the town of Sörforsa growing out of just a few farmhouses.
The trail continues on small streets and leads to the church of Forsa. Sometimes you will walk on the old embankment of Dellenbanan. The church is beautifully situated by the river Rolfsta, running into Kyrksjön, a lake with a mighty view of the blue mountains.
Leaving Forsa behind you, you will walk a longer distance on the embankment. There is a nice resting place by the old pond, a short distance from the trail.
In Näsviken, you will find the Tamm’s Canal, with an exciting history of steamboat traffic, paddle-steamers and transporting of ore and minerals. Smaller gravel roads lead to the end of the stage – Hälsingegården Nirsgård, where overnight stays can be arranged, as well as meals, by arrangement, so make sure to make your reservations well in advance!
