Downhill section from Karihuskampen to the asphalt road just above Ranheimskrysset (Suskrysset). Hilly/smooth first part before it gets steeper in the last part. A lot of rock and roots with a few technical challenges, therefore the level of difficulty is blue. The path crosses a dirt road, but the continuation is easy to find. The last stretch after you have crossed the dirt road is a real gem with a winding path on a lovely barnacle bottom. This trail is often entered as part of a larger Ranheims loop or as part of a longer downhill route towards Leira or Fagernes. For example, cycle up the tarmac and take the path from Sustjernet to Garli.


The trail begins at the top of the Karihuskampen. This can be reached in several ways and the arrival depends on how the trip is planned. From the top, follow the path northwards. Keep left at the next two junctions (the most obvious path). If you come from Bakkejord on the dirt road that this path crosses, it is possible to follow the path up. Then follow the sign to Karihuskampen where the path crosses the road. Pushbike first part, but when it cools off it is possible to cycle all the way to the Karihuskampen.
