The trail to Kletten is easy-going on a clear path. It is a varied hike through birch forest and above the treeline. There is a lovely view of the surrounding area from the top.
From Vingelen center follow road 735 northeast. Look for the signs towards Olaberget. Around 2 km from the center turn left along Ørvilldalen road.
This a toll road and the fee can be paid in cash or via SMS. Follow this road for around 3 km until you reach some signs on the left-hand side with information about the hike.
There is parking space for a couple of cars.
There are several trails to Kletten, including from Vingelen museum and from Rabben near Nordvangen. This option is not the shortest, but possibly the easiest in relation to elevation gain.
The path travels initially through birch forest. After a while the landscape opens up with views towards Gruvvola and remnants of the old mining industry.
The trail then follows a ridge with panoramic views. From the cairn at the top it’s possible to walk a little further down to find a lovely view towards the north end of the village.
This trail is also suitable for mountain bikers.
