A unmaintained often nasty gravel road that leads to Fálkafell. It's fun to ride both directions but is mostly used to climb to Fálkafell to get to the other trails. Popular with the walking/running community, show respect.

Access Info

Bike or drive up Súluvegur in Akureyri and you will find it well up the mountain.
