Rocky on the top, many lines to choose from and a lot of fun from gravel to dirt track with fun turns and hips that you can jump if you are up for it. Fun and Fast track downhill.

It is an old horse riding and herding route. One of two trails to get up on and cross Vaðlaheiði Mountain and over to or from Fnjóskárdalur valley. It has long dirt sections, few very rough sections with big rocks and also sweet parts with fun decents. A bit difficult climb up but fun trail riding down.

The whole route, up and over, is around 10km with 530m elevation.
