About Postvegen Høre - Kviismoen

This road is part of the road that villagers in Høre had to walk to get the mail in the time the post office was located on Kvismoen, where Kvismo Sag is situated now. Park at the gas station in Ryfoss and walk along the way up from Høre 500 m to the first turn. There, turn onto the footpath by the sign to "Riddarberg". Follow this path for 500m to the sign "Postvegen" to the left. You walk through easy terrain through spruce and pine forest. Here you may see birds like Siberian jay, European crested tit, coal tit, thrush, black woodpecker and spotted woodpecker. The trail gradually turns into a tractor road. Postveien eventually abruptly leaves the tractor road to the right (north-west) and goes down to Kvismo.
