Östgötaleden is Östergötland's regional hiking trail and stretches across Östergötland for more than 1500 kilometers. In the vicinity of Vårdnäs Stiftsgård there is a part of the Östgötaleden called Rängen Runt - that is, hiking around the lake Stora Rängen. A distance of about 45 kilometers. Sometimes right on the beach and sometimes further away. The trail is signposted with orange markings. Sometimes denser and more clearly marked and sometimes with longer distances between the markings, but still marked.
