Enjoy sweeping views of Rondane National Park from an accessible peak

If you are looking for a short and easy-going trail, hiking to the top of Baksidevassberget from Smuksjøseter is an excellent choice. From the top of this accessible peak, you will have far-reaching views of the western part of Rondane National Park and the enveloping vast plains. In the south, you will see Formokampen Mountain as well as the faraway mountains of Jotunheimen National Park.

There are two trails leading to the top. Choose between a longer trail with a gradual ascent or a shorter but steeper alternative route.
