You’ll find yourself in a wilderness only a short walk from the Partille commuter station. The path opens at the end of Gavelåsvägen road where you can park and choose one of several posted trails around Paradiset and the Lexby mountains.
Follow the white/green markings towards Surketjärn. About 100 meters north of Surketjärn is the forest road named Surketjärnsvägen. Follow it to the east until you reach the orange signs for the Bohusleden. Here you can choose to follow trail as it takes a few detours into woods or only follow the gravel road the whole way past Lake Flatevatten to Lexbydalsvägen. There is a windbreak at Flatevatten.
From Lexbydalsvägen follow the Bohusleden, turn to the right and almost immediately left following the rail markers. Some 2.5 km on the trail passes the Björnareåsen ridge which is hard to access since there are no paths. About 500 meters farther on the trail crosses the Sandvadsvägen and turns towards the south to the Ramsjö lakes where there is a grill site.
Leaving the Ramsjö lakes at the Torp Freden croft you are offered a choice as the trail divides. One path goes through a gully landscape almost directly down to the Jonsered Manor. The other path goes through an old forest down to Lake Aspen’s shore and the Humlebadet beach.

Leave route E20 at exit 80 and drive towards Kåhög. Drive under the railroad and turn right at the traffic circle on to Lexbyvägen. Turn left to Paradisvägen and the left again over the bridge to Gavelåsvägen. There is a parking lot where that road ends. (57°44’52.8″N 12°05’59.2″E)
The Partille commuting station is about 100 metres from Paradisvägen on Lexbyvägen. Then follow the instructions above. At the end of the hike you can take the train from the Jonsered station.
