Safety

  • This is a high-mountain trail that is groomed and prepared in stable weather from approx week 8.
  • Always choose trails based on your ability and current conditions, and remember that the weather changes quickly in the mountains. Turn back in time (or choose another trail). Check the weather forecast on yr.no.
  •  Bring extra clothes, food, and drinks so you are better prepared in case something unforeseen happens.

  • For safety, it is also recommended to bring a map and compass.

Description

The trail starts with a steady climb for the first couple of kilometres, but it's worth the effort when you reach the top! Lovely circular trail at Kjølen. The round itself is 6.6 km and the total distance from the car park and back is approx 13 km.

See live grooming status of tracks at skisporet.no.

Is you dog with you? There is a leash requirement in all machine-groomed trails during Christmas-, winter-, and Easter holidays. Also note that the leash requirement is valid all season for the ski areanas Gravset (up to 8 km) and Totteskogen, as well as the valley & forest tracks from Gravset in the east to Feten and Lio in the west. Remember that your dog should not hinder anyone and thank you for cleaning up after your dog.
