This description is the route from Moelv to Brumunddal.
From the railway station in Moelv, walk past Garveriet, follow river Moelva to the waterworks dam, and continue along the forest road to Skjelle at Tandeskogvegen. Follow the farm road to Skybergtangen, turn onto Kræmervegen and the new trail to Geithus, Båberghaugen, and the Storlisdammen lake.
A detour to Bolstadbakken, offering spectacular views of Rudshøgda with both the Prøysen Cottage and the Prøysen Museum, is recommended.
