This trail takes about 5-6 hours to walk and you need to bring lunch and good shoes with you.
Bruksleden. To get to the start at Borntorpet from Kolarbyn you walk about 2 km along a gravel road. The hike along Bruksleden and stage 18 is basically along forest paths, often through dense forest with young coniferous and deciduous trees. There is a short distance on a little road beyond the lake Dammen. This part is easy walking, and you will pass only a few lower altitudes, perfect for beginners.

At the lake Dammen, the trail follows the lakeside. A few kilometres further on, you reach the hiking target Lake Kolpen.
