Description

This is a super round trip that takes you through baby needle paths in the forest and fine mountain paths through some of the finest areas on Skaraåsen.

Cycle up the dirt road towards Fagerdalen. When you arrive at Tjernset after approx. 5 minutes there is a trail sign up to the right. Follow this path up to Fagerdalen.

From Fagerdalen, turn left onto a path (a little difficult to see), then follow this straight ahead for a few kilometers until you enter a gravel road. Turn right and follow the dirt road all the way to Feten.

Go over the fence where you find the path. Turn left and follow the path, straight ahead at the first crossing. After a few kilometers you will come to a cabin on the left. Cross the access road and follow the path further until you reach Habbeset.

At Habbeset, follow the gravel road for a couple of hundred metres, straight ahead at the junction. The path then continues down to the right and will take you over a marshy area, before it takes you over a couple of peaks with a dry mountain path. You then have a super nice mountain path up to Ronestølen. There you turn left and follow the path up a ridge between the heather.

After the ridge, the path takes a sharp right turn and then a sharp left turn. Follow the path until you come down to the crossing again, and then turn right and back to Feten where you just follow on over a ridge.

After the ridge you cross a stream, keep right and follow the path down back to Fagerdalen.

From Fagerdalen you take the path to the right, the one you cycled when you started the round, but instead of going straight ahead, you take a sharp left about 50 meters in. After a small bog hole (you cross the ski track) you have a lovely floating path down to Skjennhovdstølen. Continue straight ahead. After crossing a small stream and up a steep hill, take the right path at the top of the hill, by a tree. Here there is a super singletrack down through the forest and a logging field that takes you down to Flatagrov. Then take the gravel back up to the start.

Access

Take Skaraåsvegen up from Steinmoen, 40 meters east of where Tuppeskogvegen meets FV223 (Golreppen). Remember to bring NOK 50 for the barrier, which you will find 200 meters after the crossing.

The road takes you up a series of hairpin bends. You then enter a plain after a gentle downhill, and a few hundred meters after you start uphill again, the road heads inwards towards Fagerdalen. There is a small parking pocket here.

Tonje Sameien rated Skaraåsen rundt good. Veldig enkel fin runde med innslag av gruspartier. Korte fine nedkjøringer. Perfekt fjellsykling for ferske syklister, evt andre mer erfarne med hardtail eller lett stisykkel. Blir kanskje litt vel «flat» for endurosykler. Fin tur oppå høyfjellet som passet oss fint på en «hviledag».20.jul.2021

Ivar Nilsen rated Skaraåsen rundt very good. Funket greit for en nybegynner, sleit litt i noen av stigningene (sikkert pga dårlig teknikk) men flatene og nedoverbakkene var supre.19.jul.2021
