This post covers Stage 19, Vaktarekullen-Lunden, of the official guide to the trail.
You can also check out my report on the section before this one (going southbound), Section 20.
If you have not already read the introduction to this trail guide, you can check it out by clicking here. It has a list of reports on other sections I have hiked plus other important/useful background information in general--so please read the introduction first before reading my reports.
* If the section before this (stage 20) was a trail of many bridges, this section is a trail of many planks--some good, some bad, and some that are somewhat dangerous, as I will explain more about shortly. This is also another stage that pretty much guarantees you will be hiking with wet or soaked shoes and feet, as water is once again a central feature.
In this stage rather than crossing rivers and lakes, it is mostly crossing marshes and streams. There is a variety in the nature here that should surprise even veteran hikers, as I was pleasantly surprised by some of the beautiful wetland landscape that is a contrast to the hills and cliffs of other sections. There are also some unique landmarks on the trail that, in addition to the natural beauty, make for quite a memorable hike.
