The trip takes three hours, including snack/lunch break.
Walk along the gravel road that goes southeast from Gol Hyttegrend and follow this road for about 1.2 km. Then go up left on a clearly marked trail through captivating terrain. A gentle enough ascent, but steep going down.
We pass the ancient house sites at Trollset before we go up towards Veikulstølane. The trail is clearly marked up at Veikulnatten, and rewards us with breathtaking views!
Going down, due to the steepness, we proceed with some caution, before we join the trail going down towards Grangard. A short distance from there is a forest road leading to Skardet. This road is signposted, but the actual road is unmarked.
Once we reach the main (trafficked) road, we have about 500 metres to walk to Gol Hyttegrend.
For those of you looking for a slightly longer hike, it can be a good idea to start at Danielsplassen down by the regional road. A marked trail starts here which rises very steeply towards the Viddi smallholding and Uthalli.
