RUNNING

Go north from the changing area along the lake. From there, a paved road crosses road 37 and up to the camp site. Go up the hill and back through the forest path. Once again crossing road 37 down Laugabraut towards the exchange area, turn right. There is a loop towards south that ends in the same place. The circle is 5 km and there are 2 rings, a total of 10 km. The largest part is on soft offroad paths.
