This is a nice trip for those who prefer a short and interesting trip to Tveitastølene.
The hike starts at the picnic area at Tumleøygården. From here follow the well-marked trail that starts at the info-boards and goes upward the valley. This road has been used for transportation of goods for as long as anyone can remember. It's not few tons of cheese and butter that have been transported down on horseback through the ages. In the winter the road was used to transport animal food from the mountain farm, which were treats for the cows, and was especially given to calves, sheep and goats. The mountain farm food smelled particularly nice. This can be confirmed by anyone who has spent the night in a well-filled barn.
The Tveitagårdene farms used to have three summer farms. This trail goes to the langstølen, which is the only one of the farms that is still in use today.
Along the road there are many signs that tell about events in ancient times, and if you are lucky, you can hit the capercaillie, hazel grouse and the social and inquisitive Siberian jay here in coniferous forests. Not far from Tveitastølen you cross the old traffic artery Liaveien. This was the road that was widely used in ancient times by salt and fish traders that were going to Lærdal.
When you get up on the prepared summer farm way, you should wander further east on the embankment on Tveitastølen as far as the road goes and past old cabins. Nice landscape and beautiful view over Slettfjellet, Hensfjellet, Jotunheimen and down Slidre.
