Nice walk through the woods to suit everyone. Great views at the top
Lovely hike from the town centre of Hemsedal with a breathtaking view over Hemsedal.
How to get there
- The hike can be started in Hemsedal town center.
- Alternatively, drive the first part up tp the gravel pit: Drive up Kyrkjebønsvegen tbetween Skogstad Hotell and Elmas cafe. After approx. 1.4 km, just after a large brown farm building on the right, take the road up past this bilding and continue up to the gravel pit where you may park. Follow the marked trail from here.
You can either park at the gravel pit or in the town centre.
- Keep track on the map and where the marked trail goes as there are several detours along the way.
- Be careful at the far end of the launch point.
By the gravel pit there is a waterfall hidden in the forest. Check the map for exact location and be careful when walking towards it as it may be slippery and is steep.
This hike is very suitable for children, and is highly recommended for everyone. You may start from the town center or drive the first part up to the gravel pit where the trail starts.
From the top, 920 meters above sea level, you will be able to see over the whole of Hemsedal, the ski resort and all the farms in the area. The viewpoint is above the waterfall Haugsbekken, which is a popular waterfall for ice climbing in winter.
Please note! There are grazing animals in the area, so remember to close gates and keep your dog on a leash.
