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 4 of the Bohusleden trail goes through the District of Partille, between Lake Kåsjön and Jonsered. 

From Lake Kåsjön, the trail runs in a northeasterly direction and soon reaches Lake Madern. There is a small shelter here, which is suitable for both having a picnic and sleeping overnight. At this spot, the Vildmarksleden and Bohusleden trails divide.

The Bohusleden trail soon passes a small tarn in the woods, with a small picnic place, and then continues through old growth woodland, crosses the E20 motorway and continues to Jonsered. Jonsered was once an industrial community and has many beautiful and well-preserved industrial buildings along the River Säveån. There are several different facilities available here.
