The route around Rødenessjøen is based on easy terrain in a landscape dominated by the rural Rødenessjøen.

From the lock town of Ørje, it runs north along the FV 21, surrounded by working farms. At Sukken you can take a detour from the FV 21 through pleasant countryside to the Huevann where you can cool off and go fishing. Back on the FV 21 you will reach Joval campsite which has exciting farm and wilderness experiences to offer (must be booked in advance). Further on, you will pass Kroksund Bridge and the Halden Canal, which were built for timber floating between Skulerud, the terminus of the Urskog-Høland line, and Tistedalen near Halden. Kroksund was the port of call for the steam ship Engebret Soot and had a hotel, sawmill and land trade in its heyday.

The rest of the route is based on a quiet road back to Ørje.

Road surface: Paved for most of the route. Gravel road on the detour to Huervannet (7 km)
