About the trail

The first 200 meters go through the woods and then on to bare rock. Great views of Hardangerfjord from along the rim of Langedalen and at the top of Dumben. Pass by the mountain cabin at Dumben and into an undulating terrain to beyond Storafjell. From here the trail down is a bit rugged until it meets a connecting path. Here you will find the hiking signs marking the routes for Grønrimb and Gausvik. You continue towards Grønrimb and shortly after you will arrive at the mountain cabins there. You can choose to connect with the other hikes that also lead to Grønrimb (for example from Gausvik, Kysnes, Grotnes and Gangdal). All these hikes are described on the information board at the main road.
