The route starts here at the information board, and you follow the forest road about 200 meters before the trail starts in the terrain to your sharp left. It is a bit steep in the beginning, but the hike is graded as moderate, and is also
suitable for children from 6 years of age.
Be aware of slippery stones and roots in wet weather. After 10 minutes on the path, you should take a detour to the left through the forest and have a look at the waterfall.
The mountain farm is beautifully situated by the river in a wide corrie and consists of four buildings. Almelidstølen was used as a summer farm until around 1950. The cows were brought up in June and returned after their summer vacation early in September.
