The area is access sensitive!
Since 2021 car access to Skavlöten is from Arningevägen, not from Löttingelundsvägen any more. If driving via the E18, take exit 185, trafikplats Arninge. Drive 1.4km along Arningevägen, passing Arninge shopping centre. Take the gravel road turnoff (signed for Skavlöten naturreservat) at the roundabout by K-Rauta. Follow the gravel road for 1km to the main parking area near the lake with space for over 100 cars.
If going by public transport, there are several options.
Train from Stockholm:
Take the Roslagsbanan from Stockholms Östra to Hägernäs station at the south end of the reserve. From there, walk north along a gravel path for 1.3km to reach Rönninge By. Alternatively get off one stop later at Arninge and walk through the shopping centre, then follow directions as for buses to Arninge Centrum below.
Bus to Arninge Centrum:
Take a bus to Arninge bus station and walk under Arningevägen by the Max restaurant to access the reserve from the east. Follow Antennvägen towards Teledyne until a metal gate on the right hand side. Follow the path through the forest, reaching Rönninge By after 1.2km.
Bus to Skavlöten north:
Take a bus 612/615/524 to Skavlöten bus stop. Walk in along the old access road, Skavlötsvägen, to access the reserve from the northwest. The main car park is reached after 1km from the bus stop.
All directions to the boulder are from the main car park.
Most of the boulders are reached by walking along the wide gravel road towards Rönninge By. Only permitted local vehicles are allowed on this road. Trackside boulders are the first encountered directly beside the road. Lost boulders and Svampblocket are on the left (east) side of the road. Bäverblocket and the other blocks are up the hill on the right (west) side. Secret Garden is on the edge of the large field close to Rönninge By. Reach these boulders by going through the electrified wire gate at the last bend in the road before Rönninge By and crossing the field towards the lake.
Skavlöten is a nature reserve. Climbing is permitted just like many other recreational activities. Please be respectful of the natural environment by taking care with mats, brushing and chalk. Brush away your chalk at the end of climbing and do not remove moss and lichen except on the holds. Keep noise levels down.
