Trail description

A great starting point for the Moutmarka trail is the parking lot at Verdens Ende.

From the parking lot, head north along the fence to Stall Verdens Ende. When you come to the road, Skåeveien, head west, over some farmland and through a gate onto the blue-marked trail. Follow the trail as it turns north and takes you near the coastline, over svabergs, (large rock formations), through some rugged terrain, over some grassy knolls, and finishing at Tjøme’s nicest swimming area, Mostranda.

It is 3 kilometers from the start of the trail at Verdens Ende to Mostranda. You can return to the beginning of the trail along the same path or you can return along the main road and biking route. For the alternate route, follow the road Moveien up to Helgerødveien, and continue south on this road until you reach Verdens Ende.
