Recommended advice
If you wish to combine the hike to the lime station with a hike over terrain, you may follow the path to Ulvanoso 100 meters until you get to the path coming from Døssland. Go over the bridge and there is an easy hike through the valley to the road 100 meters up from the sports stadium. The round trip is not suited for baby carriages and wheelchairs.

Cross the bridge and follow the forest road to the left. After approx. 1 km, you will reach the lime station owned by Uskedalen River Proprietor Organization. This is the stopping point of the hike. There are tables at the lime station where you can have a picnic.
