This loop encompasses the all three heads in the Stenshuvud National Park. The trail can start either at the south entrance to the park or alternately, a large parking lot is found at the main visitor's center and the trail could be started there. This version starts with Kortelshuvud, offering the first of three excellent views of the Baltic. The trail makes its way through Beech Forests down to the visitor's center and along the east side of north and south heads and reaches the north entrance of the park in Kivik. Kiviks Musteri is located 100 meters north of this entrance. From there, the trail takes you over the north and south heads and back to the visitor's center. The trail then takes you down to the Baltic shore, along the sandy beach and finally back through the forest to the South entrance and parking.

This is an easily accessible day hike. Mildly strenuous in the uphill portions. The Kivik's Musteri is an excellent midpoint break with a restaurant/cafe and all things apple related. The views from the heads are spectacular on clear days.
