Go hiking in varied terrain on the old road from Tovdal over to Skjeggedal in Åmli, Southern Norway. A long time ago, this was the only road to Skjeggedal.

Old Skjeggedalsvegen is a demanding trail of 7 km one way. The hike is about 6 hours long return trip. A long time ago, this was the only way to get to Skjeggedal. The road used to be good enough to drive with a horse and wagon. This is a nice trip in varied terrain, suitable for experienced hikers with stamina.

Skjeggedalsvegen between Tovdal and Skjeggedal in Southern Norway has two starting points and you can choose where to
start; either from Tveit in Tovdal or from lower Skjeggedal. There is a guestbook and puncher in the post-box on a tree at the border/on the mountain between Skjeggedal and Tovdal.

From Tveit in Tovdal: Drive from Dølemo to Tovdal, pass the shop, take a left turn at the sign for Tveit. Drive on to the gravel track, past two farms. Parking: Drive through the farm until you see an information board and park here.

From lower Skjeggedal: Leave road no. 42 between Evje and Arendal towards Skjeggedal/Risdal. Follow the road to Skjeggedal, approximately 11 km from Risdal. There is an information board and parking on the left-hand side by a red garage. The trail starts on the other side of the road by a small red garage and is marked in red. The trail follows the old route between Tovdal and Skjeggedal.
