Description

Description above (as posted by another Trailguide user):

This is a nice path with a fantastic location under the Hallingskarvet. Steep up along cottage road up from the center of Ustaoset. The hiking trail is well signposted to Prestholtseter. Some demanding sections with some rocks and two steep bends where you probably have to roll the bike, but otherwise the stretch is perfectly possible to cycle. The trail also works in the opposite direction.

On arrival at Prestholtseter it is good to take the packed lunch, or perhaps buy food and drink. Remember to take into account hikers, of whom there may be many on this stretch; - slow down, smile and say hello.

If you want to cycle further, trips to Urundberget, Geilohovda, Tuftelia or Vestreim are recommended. The last one takes you into Budalen.

Access

From Prestholtseter past the stolen and through the gate, then to the left

The start of the trail is also easy to find from the center of Ustaoset, where you first follow Nyestølvegen and then turn right up Bismivegen.

Stian T rated Ustaoset-Prestholt good. Helt grei sti. Velger du rett linjevalg er denne enkel og grei, og fint innenfor blå. Kan sykles for det meste hele veien opp og ned, spesielt med emtb.4.sep.2022

Nina Gässler rated Ustaoset-Prestholt very good. Fortsatt en fin fin sti og veldig gøy, men den har blitt vasket ut litt mer i det siste. Steinete noen steder. Definitivt mer RØD gradering når du sykler nedover mellom Eimehæe og Bismi.12.jul.2022

Nina Gässler rated Ustaoset-Prestholt very good. Fin sti både opp og ned. Sykler du oppover er det en sjanse at du må trille i en av de bratteste kneikene. Nedover kan alt rulles. Stien åpner for kreative linjevalg og den blir aldri kjedelig.2.sep.2020

Nina Gässler reported the conditions at Ustaoset-Prestholt as ok . Mye slitasje på stien, så det virker som om steinene stikker ut enda mer mange steder. Definitivt rød gradering når man sykler mot Ustaoset.11.jul.2022
