This trail is groomed every day through the season and the terrain allows for good tracks even when the weather isn’t the best. There are some fun descents along the track!
The track is taking you through some open marshlands as well as sheltered birch forests.
Everyone that are able to do cross country skiing and to be in control down the descents, plowing or in the track, are able to make this tour. This is a nice tour for those who like to stay close to civilization as there are settlements and roads close to the track, you still get the feeling of being in untouched nature!. There are possibilities of making the tour longer or shorter if desired.
The startingpoint is at the parking lot at Lundes. The tour goes towards Granhaugen-Lundtjønn-Svarttippa-Rauhaugen-Trabelia and then back through Langbakken-Rondevegen. The tour finish where it started.
