“An easy but scenic ride into the wide open Borgarfjörður valley that gives access to other trails in the area.”— Fjord Bikes
Electric Mountain Bikes Allowed
After coming out of town (over the sheep gate), the trail is on a paved road and very gently slopes up. As you pass a hill on your right after the dip the trail turns into a gravel road. As you go further and further into the valley, the views really open up, with the Dyrfjöll mountains coming into view in the west as well as the hidden rhyolite valleys to the east.
This road keeps going after the Mr. Sandman trailhead, passing over the mountains to the deserted inlet Húsavík and the deserted fjord Loðmundarfjörður.
