Need to Know
Parking area for cars available at the start or the end of the trail. Accessible by public transportation. kolumbus.no/ for bus tickets
The trails are very muddy.
If hiking, I recommend doing this route with two overnight stays.
I started in Sandnes and took bus number 23 to stop "Ålgård Europris". There interchange to bus number 48 to "Gilja." To the last part in Frafjord, I hitchhiked. Unfortunately there only a few buses each week. If you have a car drive to the parking Manafossen.
From the parking area, the first short run to the Manafossen waterfall is very exhausting; after that, the whole trail gains height slowly up to almost 1'000 meters altitude. You run through forests and along rivers/lakes. All of the trails are marked with a red "T." In Blåfjellenden and Langavatn, it is possible to rent accommodation, and even mobile data was available but unreliable. I marked a few places along the route, which I consider reasonable camping grounds.
