About the trail

The hike, which is mainly in dry terrain, takes you into the Gullbergnotten nature reserve. The first half of the hike goes through the woods on a steep and sometimes demanding track. Assisting steps have been made in two places. After a while the track flattens out and the woods open up. The path continues through pine forest, heather and bare rock up to Gullbergnotten. Superb views of the village of Jondal and the fjord. You can choose to continue on the hike "Gullbergnotten-Selsvik".
