Hitfjellrunden from the BikePark 21 km
The epic MTB trail from top of Hafjell chairlift, over the four peaks and back again to the resort. Does not look that hard on the map but do you have the technique and the lungs for it? It is absolutely worth a try and if it is to much there is a shortcut after about 5 km from the bottom of Reinsfjell to Hitfjell. But you will miss the best part…
Route description: Start with going up both the gondola and the chairlift in Hafjell. From top of the chairlift, aim for the top off Hafjell and go down to Pellestova. The trail now goes past lakes and peaks and if you go the right way you will end up at top of Hitjell where the highlight descend starts. After this descend you pedal the straight rocky trail “Hitråket” before reaching the BikePark
Remember the trail is for bikers as well as hikers. Show respect and share the trail!
