Description of walk

The path follows an old gravel road that was originally a construction road, then a summer car road over the mountain, though today there is a barricade at Rausdalssvingen. When you reach the '1,000 metre' viewpoint there is a panoramic view of the Hurrungane peaks with mount Storen (Store Skagastølstind) in the foreground. From here, you also get a great view of Bøttejuv, Nundalen, Fardalen and Utladalen.
