About Blåløypa

Blåløypa trail is a roundtrip. The round takes 1,5 hours to walk. It starts right beside Storestølen mountain cabin, follow the sign “Iungsdalshytta”. Follow the track up the hills, it can be a little heavy in the start, but it will get flatter when you pass the “fortified troll”. After a short while you will get a view to the Hallingskarvet National park. You can look inside Ynglesdalen where the water lay one after the other up in the mountain. Afterwards you will end up at the “fortified troll” it is some rocks placed up on each other. The track is marked blue, and after the “uphill” part you will meet the DNT track. You are going to follow the track on the right side and go down too you meet the car road. To get back too Storestølen you need to follow the road for 2 km.
