The path largely follows the crest of a ridge called Jären. The roller coaster is the largest in eastern Skåne and was created when the ice sheet melted away. Here and there you are led down to the lush and wet, where the bumps and smaller bridges lead you on. To the south you will find the fishing lake Verkasjön and north you pass a little pond. At the camp site Agusa stands tallest beech forest and from the camp you have a view of the wilds. The area is a nature reserve. Andrarum's alumni was once Skåne's largest industry, and at the middle of the 18th century up to 900 people lived here. At that time, the ground lay cal and the smoke thick and yellowish white. Along the leg, you pass past slag heaps, water-filled crimes, the magazine and north of a collection of small half-timbered houses. They were the workplace of the mill. The lake of Verka is an artificial lake running out of a bog. It was cleaned on peat and dammed to give the mill water for leaching of burned slate. From the lake the water was led to a smaller pond, and Skåneleden passes over it. The construction of Christinehof's castle began in 1737 by Christina Piper. Under her, both castles and mills flourished. Today there is an ecopark in the castle. At Breabäck you will encounter the protected road between Andrarum and Agusa. There is also an old breakaway cabin where linen was dried and broken to become linen fabric. The village of Agusa is archaic with stone farm buildings and old houses, where the Agus cabin is one of them.
