Degree of difficulty
The seventh section begins at Myrbacken, in the middle of the countryside, but with just under a kilometer to Äskekärr train station. The section ends at Lugnås church. The stretch passes pastures, open fields and forest. Closer to Lugnås church, there is a rather steep climb up the ridge of Lugnåsberget and once at the church you can enjoy the beautiful view from the church steps towards Kinnekulle and Lake Vänern. The first church was built here as early as the 12th century.
Surface: Mostly gravel road but also a lot of forest path, shorter sections on asphalt.
Time: 5-6 hours excluding breaks
Not to be missed: The view from the stairs at Lugnås Church.
How to get here: The stage starts in Myrbacken, less than a kilometer from Äskekärr station. Here there is both a small car park and public transport, by train, mainly to Mariestad and Lidköping. At the stage finish, there are good parking opportunities at Lugnås church, where, however, there is no public transport.
Accommodation: In Myrbacken, where the stage starts, there is no accommodation. However, a stone's throw from Lugnås church you find the charming Lugnås Ekohotell. Here you can also buy a dinner basket from locally produced ingredients.
