On the flat ridge leaning up to Skræmetindane in the southeast, at 1600 meters altitude, there is an impressive trapping plant for reindeer with about 40 traps (bøgehi). The oldest facility of this type was established in the Iron Age which began a few hundred years before the birth of Christ. In many places, they were used until firearms became common around the 16-18th century. A plant of this size shows that there must have been a lot of reindeer moving through the area.
The hike goes up the west side of the creek. The vegetation is lush and diverse in species up the steep grassy hillsides. You gain altitude quickly and the summer pastures start looking small. The contrast becomes especially apparent when you reach 1500 meters and climb over the edge of the hillside and look inward toward Skræmetindane. Suddenly all the green is gone and gray rocks is all you can see.
