Bohus Path Section 5
Jonsered - Angered church
The fifth section of the Bohus Path takes you from Jonsered in Partille to Angered church. The path goes through a beautiful beech forest in the Bokedalen nature reserve. It is a fairy-tale world here in the spring, with the beautiful translucent green of the new beech leaves and a carpet of wood anemones covering the ground completely.
The section begins at Jonsered's factories, which were founded in the first half of the 19th century. Some of the products manufactured here were fire hoses, sailcloth, yarn for carpets and cotton goods. In the mechanical workshop, threshing-mills and castings were produced from iron, and much later woodworking machines and chainsaws were manufactured here.
The founder of the factories, William Gibson, lived in Jonsered Manor, which stayed in the family's ownership for more than a hundred years. The house is now rented by the University of Gothenburg. Don't miss the Jonsered Gardens - a free interpretation of the 19th century garden that used to adorn the site. Enjoy a coffee here at Jonsered Trädgårdscafé.

Bewitching old forest or ravine landscape
The path then divides in two different directions to recombine at Torpet Freden (a croft). Here you can choose between a slightly shorter walk through the ravine landscape, about 20 minutes, or a more demanding walk of about 45 minutes following the shore of lake Aspen and a bewitching old forest. By lake Aspen there is a swimming area, Humlebadet, with a diving tower. From here the path continues north over a suspension bridge between the two lakes Stora and Lilla Ramsjön. Walk up the hill for a breath-taking view of Partille and Gothenburg.
The path then goes towards Angered, passing a number of lakes with swimming places and lovely rest areas. In parts it is absolutely silent, while as you approach Angered there are more sounds from the neighbouring town.
Fact about the trail
The section takes about 3 -4 hours to walk, excluding breaks.
There are orange markers along the footpath on trees and poles, which makes it easy to find your way in either direction on any of the sections. At the beginning of each section an information board shows distances on a map with various symbols, as well as conditions regarding the right to roam (Right of public access).
Level of difficulty:
This section of the path is classified as medium and varies between asphalt roads, gravel roads and forest paths.
