Synet fra Gomobu

Trip in prepared trails at Vaset starting at Gomobu. It is a nice hilly round of 20 km that goes over Synet and reveals great views in all directions.

The trail starts at the parking lot and goes through the birch forest gently up to Nystølen and further up the marshes. There is a detour of just about a Kilometer each way to the top of Synet. In good weather, you can enjoy a magnificent view, and using the view-disc, you can find out which peaks you see. After the descent back to the trail junction, follow the trail towards Valtjern (4 km). It is a gentle descent down Djupdalen with many nice rest areas. At Valtjern you will find a kiosk that is open during holidays. From here take the trail to the right and go directly back to Gomobu.

Alternatively, take a trip across the marshes towards Langenberg (1060 meters above sea level) (4km) and further over Torvmyrene back to the ski lift and down to Gomobu.
