Short circuit in the forests between Glomma and Hernes, east of Glomma.
Easy cycling on undulating forest roads with a few more challenging hills. 29 km long without a detour to Stavåsdammen (signposted), but with options to shorten the route to both 19 km and 11 km.
Paved cycle path to Stavåsen kindergarden where the ride starts. Ascent towards Stavåsen along good gravel roads. Stavåsen is a popular recreation area north of Elverum, also widely used for walking. Serious descent from west Hernes to Grinda. Detour to Stavåsdammen is possible just before Enkebakken (signposted). Steep slope down Enkebakken. Paved cycle path back to the starting point at the Folkevang council offices. Signposted at all junctions.
Stavåsdammen is a lovely sheltered spot for bathing. Possibility for barbecuing at the covered pavilion. Outside toilets.
