Breathtaking views over Sirdals moorlands. A challenge, but well worth the effort!

You will pass a waterfall on the left hand, allow 20 minutes on the climb or approximately 200 meters to the end of forest road to see this. 400 meters along the forest road you will come to a track road, follow this road until you come to crossroads sign. Turn left and follow the marked trail at Midstøl, up hill, (southerly direction). After approx 10 minutes take the path to the west, then southwest, so that you walk parallel to the ravine on the left handside. You will have to travel through overgrown and rocky terrain. On both sides of you, you will clearly see theremains of stone walls.
