About Raggsteindalen–Lordehytta–Haugastøl

From the tourist cabin at Raggsteindalen, follow the road around 2.5 km along the Faugellifjorden lake, passed two T-marked trails. The trail to Haugastøl goes off from the road by Nordrestølen. Steady climb up the mountain, 400 meters elevation up to the foot of the Folarskardet and in to the Folarskardtjørnan lake. From there it is a climb of around 200 meters elevation to the Lord's Cabin, an open dwelling with 4 bunks, no mattresses or equipment, but firewood. From here, one can ascend Folarskardnuten (1,933 m elevation). The descent is quite steep for the first 200 meters elevation, then easy down passed Bjørnabuhøgdine to Bjørnabulægeret. Easy terrain the last 5 km down passed Tjørngravtjørne lake to Haugastøl.
