Easy and child friendly cross country track in Lesja, with a great view of the mountains in Dovrefjell-Sunndalsfjella national park to the north. Don't get startled if a mountain grouse takes to her wings over your ski tip.
Turn off road E136 at Aurstad, about 3 km east of Lesja centre. Signs to Dalsidevegen and Aursjøen. Toll road if you stay longer than one day. Follow the road about 4 km to Myrin where you got a big parking lot.
The track starts right by the Red Cross cabin. There are two tracks, one of 2 km length and one 3 km. Both tracks go in easy terrain. In the 3 km track, you will find a few hills which are perfect for picnic and playing in the snow.
