About Haugsetfjellet rundt

Trip on prepared trails from Merket in Tisleidalen. The trip is a total of 28.5 km. Keep right uphill towards Timannstølen. Two places you have the opportunity to select a right or left route (we recommend the right option both times), before passing Timannstølen and at the end of Hæravatnet. Here starts the round around Haugesetfjellet and Hæravatnet. Turn left here, past Huldrastølen. From Huldrastølen it goes gently up the ravine between Haugsjøfjellet and Haugsetfjellet, the highest point of the trail. At the trail crossing after 4.2 km, keep right/straight ahead and to the right at all following crossings, until you're back at the bridge over the outlet of Hæravatnet. Here you turn left again and can now look forward to a roughly continuous, gentle and nice descent of about 7 km back to Merket. For updated trail status, see www.skisporet.no -> Østlandet -> Oppland -> Tisleidalen Getting there: Drive Fv 51 to Tisleidalen and take off towards Merket. There is winter parking just before Merket Kurssenter.
