The first part of the trail (gamle korsvei/ the old cross road) was created around the 1630s or 40s for accessing the mines. This section has some technical climbs with naked rock, roots and loose rocks that pose a challenge with a high heart rate, especially in wet conditions. Using downhill trail rating this would probably be more of an red diamond, but there is no options between blue square and black diamond here.
The second part joins the gravel road (korsveien/ cross road) and poses little to none technical challenges.
At the top you will find a monument with a cross which the name derives from. Difficulty: Easy/ green circle.
