Stages 2-6 are part of the Swedish Tourist Association's "Signature Trail Gothenburg", which is particularly beautiful, selected and quality assured through the Swedish Tourist Association.

Section 2 of the Bohusleden trail runs between Lake Stensjön in the District of Mölndal and Skatås, a large recreation area in Göteborg.

Just north of Lake Stensjön the trail passes the lake Norra Långevattnet. There is a lovely picnic spot here, with a beautiful view across the lake. The section then carries on towards Delsjön Nature Reserve, one of the largest and most centrally located countryside areas in Göteborg. At Delsjön, in addition to the Trail, there are also opportunities to take a canoe trip and swim from the beach or from the surrounding cliffs. There is a running track, a café and toilets at Skatås. 

Large parts of this section run along even surfaced woodland paths and is of easy to medium difficulty with a couple of shorter, slightly steeper parts.
