About Slettmarkpiggen

This is a fun hike in beautiful nature with little scrambling between Slettmarkkampen and Slettmarkpiggen.

From Eidsbugarden on T-marked trail towards Gjendebu. At the intersection northeast of Høystakktjernet, take the path towards Torfinnsbu. The trail goes through easy terrain rising inward the Uksedalen valley until you see the stream that flows down from Slettmarkkampen. Then cross the stream and walk uphill on gravel ridges either on the south or north side of the stream, and further on a steep rise in grassland with lots of nice flowers. In terms of birds, particularly the bergirisk and Ring Ouzel can be noted.

Up on the edge the terrain levels out, and continues easily over roche moutonnée, patches of snow and long gravel paths. On top of Slettmarkkampen there are magnificent views in all directions.

From the summit cairn on Slettmarkkampen you walk maybe 100 meters to the south to the cairn at the cliff edge to the east, where you are heading down a diagonal shelf with some scrambling. Here some ropes may come in handy if it's wet. Cairns lead the way. It's an easy way up to the top of Slettmarkpiggen. The cairn on top is in a very airy place.

To get come variety you can take the return trip over Gravafjellet mountain. Go back down Uksedalen to the T-marked trail Eidsbugarden-Gjendebu. Proceed on unmarked trail north of Grønebergtjernet. You will then arrive at a well-kept path past Gravarfjellet to Fondsbu/Eidsbugarden.
