The trip up to Kyrkjegardsfjellet is a great trip for the whole family.
The hiking starts at Lundekroa, where you follow the walkway along Rondevegen until you reach the road Freskeåsen (road # 2) on the right.
The road Freskeåsen goes all the way to a transformer, where you then take the road to the right, which is labeled Freska. Go all the way down to Freska and continue across the bridge and up to Freskevegen. Here you go straight across the road and follow signs and ascend through light scrub forest to a more open terrain, right up to the cabins at the foot of Kyrkjegardsfjellet.
The path up to the top starts at the sign Kyrkjegardsfjellet, which you follow up between a few cabins, until you reach a more open mountain landscape. Follow the path all the way up to the cairn at the top. At the top you get a great view towards Kvitfjell, south in Gudbrandsdalen, and towards Jotunheimen. If you turn around, you get a great view of Muen, Rondane and the mountain plateau Venabygdsfjellet.
When you want to start on your way home, you can choose to walk the same path back to the Lundebutikken, or choose to follow the road Kyrkjegardsfjellet all the way to Rondevegen, and then turn right. Then follow the path on the right side of Rondevegen back to Lundes.
If you want a paper map for the trip, you can download it in PDF and print.
