The loop starts after a 30-minute drive from the city of Bergen. The steep climb that makes up the the first half is on a nice gravel/dirt road. Take time to enjoy the great view before attacking the singletrack descent to the northernmost point. Then take the gravel road back to the parking area.
Need to Know
The counterclockwise route is the only option. The parking area is the start and finish. Wet conditions can be troublesome as the trail will be extra slippery in some areas. Watch out for people walking in both directions when you're going down.
The loop starts with a gravel road climb, then transitions to a rocky and gnarly climb up to the top of the mountain. The last kilometer is a bit technical singletrack above the tree line. Take the singletrack down for 2.5 kilometers to the northernmost point of the route. In the later part of the loop, the trail splits in two. Both trails end up at the same place, although the left option is a bit longer.
When the trail connects with an asphalt road, there's about a kilometer left heading down the hill, then the route continues on a gravel road on the lefthand side of the road, so don't haul ass down the road unless you know where the exit is.
The last section of the route is a relaxing gravel road with a couple gates you have to open to get through as you make your way back to the parking area.
