Marking?Trips marked with the national standard are marked in green (easy), blue (medium), red (demanding) and black (expert). DNT (The Norwegian Trekking Association) marked routes are marked with red T's, painted on cairns and stones. Local associations and sports clubs may have marked hiking trails in other ways. There are many different varieties. Ask at the tourist information office if you are unsure of the markings in the area you are visiting.

General facilities

  • Good to know - "Be aware that the mountain drops very steeply to the north. This side often has a big overhanging cornice. Keep a very safe distance, especially during winter and spring. The walk has been graded as ""Expert"" because of the tough climb (0-1848 m.). The path is very good."
  • Map - Turkart Loen-Lodalen, 1:50000
  • Parking - When you pass Tjugen camping on your left handside, continue for 150 metres until you reach a parking place on your right handside. Parking fee.
