About Gribbehaugenrunden

Trip on prepared trails in the summer farm area up to Tisleidalen in the beautiful landscape, 800-1050 meters above sea level. From Brattstølen there are two starting opportunities: 1) Go up the slopes and take the prepared trails left towards Hermannshovda (keep straight / right in the trail crossings after about 500 m). 2) Follow the road towards Hermannstølen approximately 500 m to the trail from Brattstølen down to Vasetdansen crosses the road. Follow this to the right up to Brattstølen and turn left at the trail crossing towards Hermannshovda. Alternatively, when parking along Fv 51, follow the trail from the parking lot up toward Brattstølen and further left towards Hermannshovda. In the trail crossing east of Hermannshovda, turn right towards Liaset. The trail rises slightly the whole way. Keep straight at the next crossing after roughly 700m, past Liaset. Turn right at the trail crossing after approx 2 km later. It is 1km flat over the marsh to Gribbehaugen (tiny detour in prepared trails to the summit cairn). From Gribbeaugen, keep south towards Gjølmyr. Now a gentle and nice descent over 2 km awaits, before the trail turns right after Gjølmyr and goes relatively flat back to the trail junction north of Hermannshovda. Turn left and left again back to Brattstølen and to the parking you have selected. For updated trail status, see Getting there: Drive on Fv 51 between Gol and Leira to Tisleidalen. By Joker Fjellbu, turn towards Brattstølen. Park in the bottom of the ski slope. Alternatively, park along Fv 51, 700 m before Vasetdansen Camping when you come from Leira.
