Lilla Kungsleden with its manor environments and fast waters conveys a magnificent feeling. Lilla Kungsleden was inaugurated in 1999 by King Carl XVI Gustaf. The hiking trail starts close to the chief town Bromölla, not far from Årup’s manor house. There is a parking area, an information board and a picnic area. From the parking area, you follow the green markings and soon enter the walkway which goes to the manor house next to Årup’s park. After the manor house, the hiking trail takes you through Årup’s reindeer enclosure. After that, it follows the river Skräbe quite closely all the way down to the river’s estuary which opens out into the Baltic Sea. You can either walk across the bridge and pass Garvaregården or choose the narrower path to the west of the river, down to Nymölla Mill. The path continues between the paper mill, Stora Enso, and the River Skräbe down towards the sea. Along the trail you will enter both beech and mixed deciduous forests. During the spring, the ground is covered in wood anemones. Common birds in the area include the chaffinch, the titmouse and the nightingale. You will also find the kingfisher, the dipper and the scarlet rose finch. Among birds of prey, buzzards and red kite are dominating species.

There is a nice stretch along Skräbeån, but the rest is pretty dull. First part disturbed by heavy traffic, last part disturbed (very much) by the paper factory (smell, sight and sound).
