Alternative 1, Moen bridge – Gol train station
Bike through the town centre and follow the walkway in the direction of Rv 7.
Cross over Rv 7 and bike over Moen Bridge to get to the other side of Hallingdalselva (river). Go left after the railway underpass and follow the road in the direction of Gol train station.
A long, but not particularly steep hill brings you to a good vantage point with benches. The steep descent down to Gol Motor and Fritidspark can prove challenging, and we recommend you cycle with care here.
From Gol Motor and Fritidspark follow road towards Gol train station. Cross over the river on Stasjonsbrua (bridge) and follow Sentrumsveien (road) back to the town centre.
Alternative 2, Rotneim/Vermefoss – Gol train station
Bike through the town centre and follow the walkway in the direction of regional road Rv 7. Follow the walkway along Rv 7 all the way until it ends at Rotneim.
Continue to cycle about 150 metres along the regional road, then turn left and cross over Hallingdalselva (river) at Vermefossbrua (bridge).
Follow the gravel road under the railway bridge and turn off at the next exit on your left. Go left again after about 750 metres and follow this road all the way until you get to Gol train station and then continue back to Gol town centre.
NB! Take care when cycling from the highest point between Moen Bridge and Gol train station down to Gol Motor and Fritidssenter, as this route includes some very steep downhill stretches.
Alternative 3, Gol Church – Tuppeskogen – Rotneim
Bike through the town centre and follow the walkway along regional road Rv 52 in the direction of Hemsedal.
Go left up towards Gol Church where the walkway ends. At Gol Church you have a marvellous view over Gol town.
Carry on to Tuppeskogen (“tupper” is local dialect for pine cones, “skog” means forest – in other words, a forest with a lot of pine cones). Here you can choose whether to follow the road back to Gol town, or instead continue on to Rotneim.
At Rotneim you have two options. Either follow the walkway back to Gol town, or cross over the river at Vermefoss (waterfall) and follow the gravel road back to Gol train station and the town centre.
