Gol Autobahn

Herad, Gol, Buskerud, Norway
3.7km|1m ◢ ◣ 434m|24.06.2015

Description

Here you have 450 meters of altitude with flow and really high speed on paths and old tractor roads that have grown back to become paths. Simply release the brake, hold the steering wheel, and let yourself drift downwards.

The trail starts on a tractor road. Take the first left and follow the tractor road/path southwards along the gorge which is on your right. After a while you will come to a crossroads, on this track marked here, turn left and follow the path down. It is also possible to turn right at the intersection, you will meet further down.

After some tractor road, there is a sharp left turn with a bench set up. Immediately after this bend, you can turn right (I will describe this section as blue), or you can continue on the tractor road straight ahead (green).

Calculate approx. 1:15 to 1:30 on the whole trip.

Access

Alternative 1: Park by Herad church east of Gol center on national road 7 and walk up Liagardsvegen. When you reach the river, take a sharp left and cycle up Brenneplassvegen. After approx. After 40 minutes of pedalling, you will come to a sign with a fish on it, turn left here. When you reach the water, you are there. Calculate approx. 1 hour up.

Option 2: If you have two cars, park one at Herad church and drive up the same road as described above and park at the barrier approx. halfway up. Calculate just under 30 minutes cycling up to the path from here.

Action programmer with the cornering skills on loose needles and cones. Best section of the trail.

Stian T rated Gol Autobahn ok. Noen biter er fun, andre blir litt for enkle. Flow er det i allefall mer enn nok av her.19.aug.2022

Kjetil Melheim rated Gol Autobahn very good. Flott natuleg sti. Heile familien med barn på 5-7-9 koste seg. Tok "blått" alternativ på slutten. Mor sykla opp og henta bilen.13.jul.2022

Tonje Sameien rated Gol Autobahn good. Veldig fin - og superrask sti. Her handler det kanskje mer om hvor mye du tørr å slippe på.. Vil si den er perfekt for ferske syklister eller mer erfarne som vil sykle skamfort - NB: vi møtte på turgåere. Flaks vi hadde pause akkurat da..19.jul.2021

Bjørn Jarle Kvande rated Gol Autobahn good. En litt drøy tur på sykkelen opp, men verd turen om du liker raske flytstier. Flyt og fart hele veien på perfekt underlag med barnåler og hardpakka jord. Husk å ta med deg avstikkeren nesten nederst, det står (sommeren 2019) en benk der hvor du skal av til høgre.18.jul.2019
