From E4 in Stavsjö, follow the Skogsbyvägen for 8.6 km to Skogsbyås. Park at the parking lot marked with signs for the Sörmland's Trail.

Alternate approach from route 55 in Ändebol:
Turn East, to Djupvik, from route 55 in Ändebol in the southern part of Södermanland. Drive 7.2 km and turn right, South, in Djupvik. Continue along narrow gravel roads across the woods to Skogsbyås, about 7.2 km.
A topographic maps is almost necessary for the route finding. The barriers were open when we visited Skogsbyås in the beginning of May 2005.
Follow directions and arrows for Skogsbyslingan at the trailhead. The highpoint is along stage 30 of the Sörmland's Trail (Sörmlandsleden). There is a lookout tower on the summit.
Jari Pyyluoma visited Skogsby and supplied some of the pictures.
