Riksveg 7

Golreppen, Gol, Buskerud, Norway
3.3km|48m ◢ ◣ 364m|05.07.2014

Description

A path that traverses under Skaraåsen and takes you at great speed over tractor roads through the birch forest, delicious pine needles paths through dense pine forest, and hard-packed dirt paths.

The trail begins with a section of footpath across a tramway with a slight incline. The tractor road then starts to slope down a bit and with a little pedaling you can get super speed and flow, remember to keep to the right at every fork in the road. Midway along the tractor road you enter a narrow path before hitting the road again, remember to keep right here.

Follow the tractor road until you come to an intersection. Here you can choose to turn right and walk upwards for two or three minutes to get a super small section of path down through the pine forest. If you can't bear to pedal, you can turn left and then continue on the path down to the left.

If you go up to the right, step up the tractor road until you get a new overgrown tractor road up to the right. Just before it, and down to the left you will enter the path, follow this until you come down to the tractor road you just cycled up.

Cross the road and enter a path 5 meters to the left of where you came down. Here follows a hard-packed dirt and gravel path at high speed that takes you down a dirt road. Turn right on the gravel road, cycle 40 meters away and the path continues down to the left. Follow this down to FV223 (watch out for pedestrians). Cross the road and continue on a tractor road/path that takes you down to RV7.

A nice round trip is to park at Maxbo, cycle to the end of Tuppeskogstien, pedal up it and then onto Skaraåsvegen.

Access

Take Skaraåsvegen up from Steinmoen, 40 meters east of where Tuppeskogvegen meets FV223 (Golreppen). At the third hairpin turn (a right turn) you cycle onto a tractor road.

If you drive a car, remember to bring NOK 40 to the barrier, which you will find 200 meters after the crossing. If you cycle, calculate 15-20 minutes pedaling uphill.

Latest reports

Bjørn Jarle Kvande reported the conditions at Riksveg 7 as very good . Stort sett veldig bra forhold. De har gjort skogsvegen (som du kommer ned på halvveis) breiere som forberedelser for hogst, men inngangen til stien har de faktisk laget på ny. Noen har også rydda "midtrabatten", så nå er det bare buskas på venstre side.26.jul.2021

Bjørn Jarle Kvande reported the conditions at Riksveg 7 as ok . Øverste del er ingen vits i å teste enda. Midterste del har det vært hogst og må ryddes. Snart isfritt ellers, i allefall på oversiden av fylkesvegen. 2.apr.2021
