Great trail also for small children. At the top of the mountain there is a lovely view into the valley Grøndalen, over the hamlet of Tuv and the valley to the east with Hemsedal town center and beyond. You can also see the waterfall Rjukandefossen from above!

If you are interested in ecology, you can find an experimental field with four different conifers approx. half way. This hike is also great in autumn for the keen picker who can find both berries and mushrooms.

 

Remember to keep your dog on a leash.

 

Author's advice

Enjoy blueberries, wild strawberries and lingonberries on your way up or down. You may also find mushrooms if you are experienced with this.

Turn-by-turn directions

You start the hike by crossing the river Grøndala. Follow the dirt road to the end and continue onto the marked trail up through the forest. Towards the end, the trail goes partly on rock, so be careful if it is wet. Follow the trail until you reach the lookout point at 837 m above sea level, where you can see both the town center and beyond, as well as the waterfall Rjukandefossen. Return the same way. On the way down, make sure you follow the marked trail as there are several other trails that branch off from this one along the way.

Remember to keep your dog on a leash.

Safety information

Keep track on the map and where the marked trail goes as there are several detours along the way.
