Nesbyen, Nes, Buskerud, Norway

A classic in Nesbyen! The path is quite rough in places and has a few sharp turns, but offers natural dosages and fast roller-coaster cycling on old log sleds.

NB! Do not park on the private property where the path ends (park along Alfarvegen or in the centre).

To cycle this path, you have three alternative arrivals:

1. Cycle (or shuttle parts of the road) up the dirt road that begins a few hundred meters north of where the path ends.

2. Cycle up Bringenattvegen / Lyshøgdvegen from Rukkedalen to the start of the Påskekstra path (which is also extra rough) which is followed to the Påskestien.

3. Cycle from the top of Espeset, via the rather rough paths Påskeekstra Extra and Påskeekstra.

Description of arrival option 1:

From the center of Nesbyen, you cycle/shuttle Allfarvegen in the direction of Gol. When you come to a large embankment/fall protection, turn off to the left and keep left. Follow this road upwards. After a second 180 degree turn, take the first intersection to the left and follow the road up. You can drive a good distance up here until the road becomes too steep and bad. From here it's steep, you can cycle if you bother or push. Where the road has grown back, you continue for about another 100 meters and the road completely flattens out. Here the path starts steeply down to the left.
