This section offers cosy lakes for swimming, nice campsites and the gateway to Söderåsen National Park.

Höör is mentioned for the first time in the early 14th century, but it is only in the middle of the 19th century that the town's growth made headway in connection with the expansion of the railways in the country. Today, Höör has become something of a center for outdoor life in central Skåne. You can easily spend many hours enjoying the beautiful surroundings.

The name of the place, Höör, was previously spelled with the one vowel "ö", but in the early 20th century the spelling was changed to contain two vowels "ö" on the initiative of the Swedish Post Office. This is because, at that time, letters that were to be distributed locally were often written "Här" which was then often confused with "Hör" and many letters ended up in the wrong mail box. To remedy that problem, the spelling was changed to “Höör”.

When you cycle out of Höör, you are not far from the place designated as Scania's geographical center. A few kilometres north, a visit to the Skåne Djurpark (Scania Zoo) is recommended to explore all the animals of the north, ride a tractor in Shaun the Sheep-land, swim and of course be inspired by and learn more about the fantastic nature and diversity we have in Sweden and the Nordics.

Through small detours from this section, you can find both cosy lakes for swimming, nice campsites and unique option of accommodation in wool huts. Combine with cooking over an open fire and you get a memorable and close-to-nature experience. 

Near the trail is Vaxsjön, with three bathing jetties, barbecue areas, toilets and wind shelters. Cycle on and enjoy the view of Dagstorpsjön or take a refreshing dip in the lake. The lake is known for its fishing, nice swimming spots and good areas for picking mushroom.

Along the sections, there are opportunities to extend and supplement the bike trip with canoeing by making a stop and parking the bicycle at a canoe centre, changing means of transport and enjoying peaceful paddling in river Rönne.

Röstånga forms the southern gateway to the mighty Söderåsen National Park, which is equally beautiful and appealing in all seasons. The park is part of Sweden's largest contiguous deciduous forest areas with large elements of beech and oak. If you want to experience serenity, then look further into the park away from the larger car parks and national park entrances. There is a special folder which depicts suitable bike routes in and around the national park. If you prefer to hike, there are about 50 km of marked hiking trails to choose from. If you want to stay several days, there are excellent opportunities for overnight stays and good restaurant visits in the village. 

Along Sub trail 102 there are train stations in the following locations: Ystad, Höör, Kågeröd, Klippan, Förslöv and Båstad.
