Remember to close the gates behind you! There may be grazing sheep an cows on parts of the walk. 
Arriving at the Guddalstunet, you can continue a 2,5 km gravel road further into the valley - a rare and beautiful experience. The Guddal river descends directly from the Folgefonna glacier and this watercours is the longest untouched watercourse in Kvinnherad municipality.

Returning to Rosendal you can make it a round trip by walking the main road back, along the river, where you can see sports fishermen, a mill house, a marine research station and a life boat producing company.
