There is no special recommended skiing direction in this cross-country ski trail, but it is easiest to go clockwise if there is a hard and icy track. Close to Kårebu, where Brøstdalsløypa enters, you'll find a traditional shelter - this is a nice place to take a rest.
The cross-country trail consist of two classic trails and a freestyle trail.
The tracks are prepared in the weekends during the season, provided weather conditions.
