About Pioneren

Pioneren is undoubtedly one of the best mountain bike tracks in Østmarka, on the eastern side of Oslo. A tremendous volunteer effort has made it possible for everyone to ride an awesome track from Rustadsaga to Grønmo and back. 


Getting there

  • From downtown Oslo, take the eastbound T-bane line 3 (Mortensrud) to the "Skullerud" station. From the T-bane station, head east for a few minutes to reach the trailhead for Pioneren. 

Trail description

The trail is marked as Pioneren with its own sign and is easy to find from the road. Follow the GPS track on the Outtt app. Remember to smile and say hello to hikers. Keep your eyes open and don´t run anyone down.
