About Utsikten - Skjenegge

Just east of Tyinholmen, at the information board, the well-trodden and marked path starts that goes in an even incline to the view point at 1491 masl. Here great views open up over the Tyin area, inward Jotunheimen and towards Eidsbugarden. The marking continues northeast to the height of 1518 masl.

The trail from Eidsbugarden starts at the parking lot right on the east side of the road belonging to the serviced cabin Fondsbu (1065 masl). Follow the T-marked trail towards Yksendalsbu. After just over 1 km (20 min), you take off to the right, straight south. The trail gets steeper towards the first view at 1485 meters above sea level, which has at least as good a view as the peak at 1518 masl a bit further in, which has the name Utsikten ("View"). Now you can either turn right towards Tyinholmen, return to Eidsbugarden, or follow an unmarked path straight on, over or past the peak at 1518 meters above sea level and along Skjeneggen on a trail that eventually disappears. It is still easy to follow the elevation on Skjeneggen or even a bit further. Here you go in Vinjes footsteps.

If you are lucky you can see small herds of tame reindeer in the terrain.
