Description

Follow the track towards the summit. When the road ends, follow the slalom route up.
When you arrive at the top station of the chair lift, follow the path leading to the right (east) towards Steinhytta cabin. This is an easy way of picking up the northbound yellow trail. (Yellow arrow painted on the cabin.) Follow the trail for about an hour until you arrive at a crossing where the yellow trail crosses the orange trail. Taking the right-hand path (eastwards) will lead you along the lower side of the Skeikampen ridge back to your starting point (about 3 km). From here, there is a good view over the upper golf course. Otherwise, you can take the left-hand path (westwards), which will be about 4 km. This route takes you over the western side of the mountain, with views over the Peer Gynt Road, Skeistua Guest House and Skei Mountain Church.
