Starting point

Turn off from road 550 (on a farm road) at Svåsand, looking for the information board and the sign marking the hike to Vassenden. Continue up to the farmhouse. Car parking facilities are not good – either park off the main road or up at the farm, in which case be sure to ask the owners permission. Parking at own risk.

About the trail

Follow the road past the farmbuildings and onto a farm track. Please remember to close any gates you might have opened. After passing the houses at Dalen there is a hiking sign showing the route. The path rises in varied degrees until reaching the mountain cabins at Klepp. From here on the route continues comfortably through the woodlands (some parts are muddy) until you reach the gravel road which ends up at the information board by the lake at Vassenden. Vassenden is a connecting point other hikes.
