Krokstrand's stonework history, fantastic views from Björnerödspiggen, a dramatic hike down to the fjord Idefjorden and finally the idyllic lake Abborrtjärn. For many, this is a remote and forgotten part of the Kuststigen-trail, but the stage offers the hiker great experiences in nature.

The section starts in Krokstrand and runs parallel to the Bohusleden-trail to the summit of Löveråsfjället, called Björnerödspiggen. This is with its 222 meters is also Bohuslän's highest point. From here, the Bohusleden-trail continues west towards Strömstad while Kuststigen continues north on its way to Svinesund and the border to Norway. 

From Björnerödspiggen, a steep climb takes the hiker down towards Idefjorden again and continues on roads and trails in hilly terrain, via Hällesmörk, up to the idyllic lake Abborrtjärn at Ramberget.
