About Stølsvegen over Slettefjellet

Today there are gravel roads that go into the mountains. However, before the hydropower development gained momentum in the 1950s, people had to resort to bridleways when going to the mountain farm or, when they had other errands in the mountains. Over Slettfjellet such a bridle path is marked, and it is quite an experience to walk it. On this stretch agile and fine milkmaids have brought their herds from home over Slettedjellet to the mountain pasture for hundreds of years. Every Saturday during the summer there was a long line of pack horses tailing behind pipe smoking men who longed to get to the farm to their wives and kids. Early Monday morning they are on their way back again now carrying cheese and butter, and maybe a keg with surbrim (drink made of distilled serum) which the people at home could eat with their porridge throughout the week. Where do you start? From Slettefellvegen on the Vang side turn left into Herredalen and drive to the sign on the side "Gamle stølsvegen over Slettefjell". You can also start from the car park at the top of Slettfjellet. Go northwest to slightly past the high voltage line until you get to the big cairns marking the road and follow them southwest, and you have an easy and enjoyable trip ahead with a magnificent view of Vang and Vangsmjøsa.
