The majority of the trail network lies on the west side of E-134 between Tyrvelid and Botn, and the area in towards Fossen and Åmlinuten. There are many different routes to choose between, both short and long.
The high mountain trails begin at the ski area from the top of Haukeliheisen, and leads into the mountains towards Haukeliseter. Due to the population of wild reindeer in Hardangervidda it is not allowed to prepare the slopes all the way to Haukeliseter. Due to this the trail ends at the top of Kreklingsdyrskar, and from here lead a marked trail which is unprepared. However, from Easter the trail is prepared all the way to Haukeliseter.
