Sagkollen is a roundtrip of approx. 1,7 km, starting from Gata or Bråtagata. The trail takes you past remnants of old farms and ski jumping slopes, as well as cold war bunker facilities. Bring a map from the country store or the tourist office. Sagkollen itself is perfectly suited for a break. The view to the lakes Bergsvannet and Eikeren is great!
Please dont leave anything behind, and remember to respect the danger of forest fires. Have a nice trip!
