About Hellebekk

Trip on prepared trails. The tour starts on an easy trail over marshes and through spruce forest to Hellebekk (2.5 km). Continue 200 m and take the trail towards Rabalsskaret. Gentle climb to trail crossings on Raudalsfjellet. Here the trail from Høvrelia catches up. Follow the trail to Bjødalen (2.5 km). In nice weather, we recommend a detour to Raudalsfjellet (1205 meters above sea level), with great views in all directions: Norefjell, Hallingskarvet, Jotunheim. From here, the tour continues through Vesle Grevsjøen to Rabalsskardet and down to Bjødalen. Furthermore, there are 9 km of gentle slopes back to Ellingsæter. Slightly hilly final section. The route can be extended or shortened by for example going through Bergaleinatten instead of Rabalskardet. Updated trail status: www.skisporet.no/Oppland/hellebekk. Getting there: Follow E16 to Bagn and turn towards Nesbyen and Ellingsæter (boom barrier). There are approximately 16 km from Bagn to the parking lot located 200 meters past Ellingsæter.
