An exciting section following the sea-shore from Gustavsberg and under the majestic Uddevalla bridge.

The second section of the Kuststigen-trail follows the shoreline of Byfjorden, from Gustavsberg and under the majestic Uddevalla bridge, to finally reach Ammenäs. The trail climbs slowly up the hills around Sund where you get a nice view of the inlet to Uddevalla and the majestic bridge. The path then looks down to the shoreline before passing under the bridge to reach a nice swimming area with good possibilities to put up a tent. 

After the bridge you will enter Ammenäs idyllic residential area to end at Ammenäs jetty. Here the Archipelago boats add up so it is perfectly excellent to combine hiking with a trip with these.
