How to get there

From the town centre, follow Rv 52 east to Ulsåk where you turn off towards Lykkja. After approx. 5 km, at Gravset Skiarena, there is a car park on the left with the sign Storhøvda.

Parking

Parking on the left side of the road at Gravset. (Vipps payment for Norwegians).

Safety

  • A topographic hiking map may be handy.
  • The trail can become very slippery in the rain.

Tip

If you want a longer hike and want a round trip, continue walking towards the Topp20 peak Geiteberget, also a stunning viewpoint in Hemsedal, and walk Gravsetåsen back to your parking - roundtrip Gravsetåsen.

Description

"An easy hike with a fantastic view". 

You start the hike by a gravel road past a small mountain lake the trail turn up into the forest. Once you reach the top you will get a fantastic view of the mountain Skogshødn, the waterfall Hydnefossen, Lykkjas lake area and the valley westwards. There is a wooden frame on the top toward the waterfall that makes the perfect picture spot!
