Spectacular high mountain hike along a good trail.
The trail starts by Hellebu, just by the mountain Hellerane. Magnificent view from both Hellerane and Veslesyningen. From here the trail goes along a good trail, in a continous ascent until you come to the top and get a view over Reinsbotnan. Continue on the trail on the northside of "little" Reinsbottvatnet, where you can see a fishing cabin.
On the westside of the waters you have the mighty mountain summits of North and South Skorvefjell and Fossebrea (1666 masl) which is the highest mountain in this area.
From Reinbotnan you have the possibility to follow a slightly worse trail towards Fagerdalen. The hike then becomes 4,5 km longer.
