About Grøtsætra–Oppdal village

This trip is in one of the sunniest areas in all of Oppdal. Enjoy the trip from the highlands and down to the Oppdal town centre with beautiful surroundings.

The starting point is Grøtsætra, where you’ll follow the track north after about 300 metres. Turn westward and follow the signs to Rauhovden/Storløkkja/Vangslia. At Vangsætra, the trail will turn south and it is this that you’ll follow toward Oppdal centre.

After you’ve passed the parking spot at Storløkkja, the track goes down toward Dørumselva River, and crosses it. From here the track is occasionally steep up toward Haugen Farm, but after that it becomes very gradual and enjoyable toward Vangslia ski centre. Along the way you will pass a hut, about 1,5 km from Vangslia. This is a good spot for a break.

You’ll cross the road between Oppdal church and the ski centre, before continuing the trip down toward Hovden Ski Resort.
