Description

Main descent at Torpo. Mostly built for cycling, except at the very bottom that was cleared by Torpo IL for the backhill race Veslekamben Upp. Steep cycling with the photogenic "Sklia" at the top, lots of good flow across the fall direction, some technical parties, and delicious work cycling to the bottom where the terrain flattens more.

Access

Whole tour including the uphill: https://trailguide.net/5465 There is little parking height at both the Oppheim side and the Liens side of Torpo. Recommend parking at Bakketun sports ground and cycling asphalt up to Siresletta. Here you cycle / push a forest car road marked to the Rikansrudkamben. This is the backbone of the opposite hill race Veslekamben Upp. Follow the sign all the way to a small area before the last climb towards the Rikansrudkamben. Here you turn right towards Veslekamben. The downhill path starts at the highest point. Do not be tempted by wider trails, but stay on the signposted narrow path. This is where it is best and most cycling. When you reach the asphalt road, follow signs for Bakketun into the forest. A beautiful finish where you return to the sports ground. Alternatively for cycling / pushing in the forest, is to cycle asphalt road over Siresletta and past Lien and up mountain road towards Syningen. After the boom, take the first road to the left and into a section to Brøtamyra and a junction. Turn left and then the "Elgtråcket" trail goes off after about 30-40 meters. From the bottom of this one is easily intuitive to the back of the Veslekamben via a forest road and a little trail. Torpo also has everything you need with the bike shop Tretterud Sport, the Joker store and the Opheim Pensjonat accommodation, as well as several campsites.

Gunnar Westholm rated Snoken / Veslekamben epic. The Benchmark? En av topp 3 nedover stier i Hallingdal! Og en klar favoritt over det hele.. Den har den variasjon av helning, svinger, flyt, teknisk inkl Sklia som nok de fleste må ha en god dag for at ta uten forstyrrende sommerfugler.. Den har alt hva som de fleste andre stier mangler noe av. Lang er den og, men med jevnlige slakke "drapå" eller hvile-partier så blir man ikke utslitt på forskudd grunnet bremsing. 1.jun.2020

Martin Aasen rated Snoken / Veslekamben very good. Lang nedoversti som gir mye morro! Noe som er bygd, mest naturlig. Noe oppkjørt, en del stein og røtter som gjør det mer utfordrende å få flyt. Med riktig linjevalg så er det gode muligheter for høy hastighet! 22.sep.2019
