This trail meanders through forests and over meadows, with windswept shrubs and stones in abundance. At Hov's halls, Hallandsåsen meets the sea. Here reddish gneiss with amphibolite is stored, it was added when magma penetrated. Then the rock has been shaped by the water and you pass the gorges and caves. West of Hov's halls, the meadows spread out. They have been grazed for a very long time and a special flora and fauna has emerged. Sometimes you cross the pebble field with clear embankments from an earlier sea, the Littorina Sea. At Sänkudde you walk past Lake Ila. At the pool there are exciting plants like insect-catching densely and spring evenings you can hear the turtle's teasing song. North of the golf course there is one of Bjäres most interesting plant sites. Here you will find rare grasses and flowers, including red-flowered northern water lily. From the height of the halls you can look down on the pebbly-filled Smygeslätt where traces of poles tell about an older fishing settlement. To the west of the restaurant you walk past the boulders with pits. It was common for ships to be stranded along the coast. The villagers took away all the bolts and let the sea distribute the remains, then a de-auction was held on the beach. Gradually, a wreck company was formed at the Segeltorps beach. They took care of shipwrecks, towed them here and auctioned the parts. There was also new production here. Between 1829 and 1848, ships were built south of Sänkudde. In the water you see the blocks Stora and Lilla Ringasten where the boats were moored. The coastal meadows were called beach meadows and were the commons of the villages. Here, young animals, sheep and geese were grazing. The villagers were free to collect seaweed and leave home as fertilizer for the lean soil. The path immediately turns in between Gröthögarna, eight graves in a row. This grouping is very unusual in Skåne.
