The trip to Kråkvasstinden is long and demanding but it is a true classic. This type of hike is something you don’t just forget but be sure to do it on a sunny day to get the full experience!
The trail starts at Liabø parking place opposite of the barn, near the stonewall. Follow the red markings along the trail (on stones and trees). The ascent goes evenly upward toward Liabøsætra. When you reach the sign “Stygghælet” you can go down and look at the ravine. A little further down you’ll find Gjøristolen. Here you can sit on the edge of the cliffside and look down at the river Drina and the roadway below you. Continue then up towards Liabæsætra. This can be the last stop for you if you decide the hike has been long enough after walking for an hour.
When you’ve passed the hut, you’ll find a trail going west. Follow this to Kråkvatnet. It is fitting to take a longer break at this location. If you brought a fishing rod you can try your luck with the lake (remember to purchase a fishing permit at Lønset Grunneierlag). It is also a good place to set up a tent.
From Kråkvanet you will now go directly west and up the somewhat steep mountainside toward Kråkvasshalsen. When you are finally up the hill, it’s an easy incline towards Kråkvasstinden. At the top you’ll have majestic views over Storlidalen, Trollheimen, Sunndalsfjella and Dovrefjell.
Estimated trip duration is a roundtrip.
From central Oppdal drive west along Riksvei 70 for about 30 km. Exit on the right and continue along the road, which will lead you to Klevgardan and Liabø.
