Description

Kløvstien is an old road between Romsdal and Sunnmøre, and it was an important path before Trollstigen opened in 1936. The hike starts in Isterdalen and continues up the hillside along Stigfossen. For centuries the local market "Romsdalsmartnan" on Devold was very important for trade and relations in this area.

Park at the info sign in Isterdalen, RV63, and follow the marked trail in the woods until the Trollstigen road starts. Further up the trail goes on the side of the Stigfossen waterfall, 150 meters before the Stigfossen bridge, there is a very steep section which is secured with chains. Take care and be aware that it can be slippery on the stones. Follow the car road in some places.

Equipment:
Good running shoes or mountain boots are recommended for this trip.
