PUTTEKOLLEN (VALDRESHORNET) 509 masl

  •  /  km From You
Overview
Details

Length: ca. 1,5 km one way
Duration: ca. 45−60 min up (from trail head)
Hight difference: ca. 200 meters
Suitable for children: high
Parking: along the forest road across the trail head (toll road, NOK 20,- in 2010), alt. at Begna bruk

Drive on E16 to Sørum. Exit and drive over Hougsrud Bridge and turn right towards Begna bruk (logging and saw). It’s possible to park the car here (in this case the length of the tour is doubled). Otherwise you turn left at Begna bruk towards Fluberg and take the second road to the right after the bridge over the river Buvasselva towards Puttekollen (logging road, toll NOK 50,- in 2015). There’s room for a couple of cars across the trail head, 100 meter before the turning space.

The signed path climbs steadily but not too steep uphill. Approx. halfway up, it takes a sharp right turn. From the top, there’s a stunning view down into the valley Begnadalen, but mind the abyss (especially with children)! Another 500 m further south, at the end of the mountain, there’s another view point from where you can see all the way to the lake Sperillen.
