Valley farms from Grinda to Skar

16 Jan

Took a 17km early evening round trip up Maridal valley on whose right flank I live. Rolling terrain through picturesque farm and forest land. The higher reaches give you nice vistas down onto Maridalsvannet, over to Grefsenkollen and occasionally down to the city.

Even though it starts on the border of town, this trail sees little use. Most people either go to Sognsvann or drive to the endpoint at Skar and ski onward on much less pleasant trails. It’s small ups and downs the whole way making for good training. Moreover, it’s the best place to spot “meese”. This is the trail where I had my belligerent Moose run-in last winter.

Because of the farms, houses and road lights some of the people I passed were going without a headlight.
