Section eight runs from Lugnås church to Karleby. The hike from Lugnås church goes through a rolling cultural landscape, continues past the Qvarnstens-mine Minnesfjället. The trail then takes you further on smaller forest roads and paths towards Karleby. This part of the Biosfärleden is slightly hilly.

Surface: A lot of gravel road and forest path. Sections on asphalt.

Time: 3-4 hours excluding breaks

Not to be missed: A visit to the mining area at Qvarnstens-mine, Minnesfjället, together with a guide. During the season it is open but out of season this needs to be pre-booked.
