Description of the hike (2-3 Hours, One-way)
Follow the road past the farmbuildings and onto a farm track. Please remember to re-close any gates you might have opened. After passing the houses at Dalen there is a hiking sign showing the route. The path rises in varied degrees until reaching the mountain cabins at Klepp. From here on the route continues comfortably through the woodlands (some parts are muddy) until you reach the gravel road which ends up at the information board by the lake at Vassenden. Vassenden is a connecting point for tours 9,10 and 11.
May – October/November.
Bring food, drinking water and windproof clothing. Waterproof walking shoes or hiking boots are recomended. We recommend that you bring a map of the area and a compass, or a GPS. Cell phone signals are NOT GOOD during the whole of this hike. Dogs must be kept (by law) on a leash at all times between April 1 and August 20. Open fire is prohibited in the hills and woods between April 15 and September 15. You are free to walk anywhere in the hills and mountains. Take care of the nature and show special consideration to all wildlife. Please do not litter. Ask the Tourist Information («Juklafjord») regarding angling/fishing and the purchase of fishing permits.
Turn off from road 550 (on a farm road) at Svåsand, looking for the information board and the sign marking the tour to Vassenden. Continue up to the farmhouse. Car parking facilities are not good – either park off the main road or up at the farm, in which case be sure to ask the owners permission. Parking at own risk.
