Section 4 Lövhagen - Domarudden

Österåker, Norrtälje

At Lövhagen, Roslagsleden once again crosses the old mail road between Stockholm and Turku. A couple of kilometres south, along the old Norrtälje road, lies the village of Ösby, with its post house on Queen Kristinas old mail road. There are buses to Lövhagen, but no parking.

After Lövhagen, the trail follows an asphalt road for a couple of kilometres. Then it's mostly a case of forest tracks as far as Domarudden recreation area on Drängsjön lake.

The shelter by Lilla Harsjön lake enjoys a stunning location, making it a perfect spot for a break, and perhaps even a dip in the lake. The area around Tärnan lake is beautiful, with numerous smaller lakes, ancient forest and rich cultural heritage. The area is now a nature reserve.

The end of this section is Domarudden recreation area in the nature reserve by Drängsjön lake. The site offers child-friendly swimming and fishing for brook trout and rainbow trout. Fishing licences are available at Domarudden, where you can also hire fishing rods and boats. Domarudden is also the start or end of Blå Leden – the hiking trail that runs to Vaxholm via Rydbo, Ladvik and Ellboda.
