Follow the footpaths shown on the map below (a 5 km walking-trail) and take the opportunity to see the remains of several old settlements and the today almost forgotten undertakings that provided for the bare necessities for the local population in the parish of South Pjätteryd in the 19th century. Large families and poor farming conditions made it necessary to find additional sources of income. This particular area was famous for its tar burning and pitch cooking.

Each numbered spot on the map indicates a historical monument. Information signs are posted at each site.
