The trip to Trogfjell in the centre of amli follows the bridge amfoss bru, one of the longest stone bridges in Northern Europe. The trail is not demanding, about 1.6 kms one way, and it takes about 1,5 hours to hike - round trip. At the top, you'll be about 430 metres above sea level. Both children and adults can easily do this hike. This is a marked cultural trail with 12 checkpoints to the top of the mountain Trogfjell. When you reach the peak, there are binoculars and a guest book. Previously, people took the train to amli to go hiking at Trogfjell, and amli people used to celebrate Midsummer Eve on the mountain. There is an old legend explaining why it is called Trogfjell, and the answer can be found in a painting at the Elvarheim museum. Parking is at Elvarheim Museum. Part of the peaks of amli project. Check out www.amli.no, Produktark, to find a map of the route.

Caused by missinterpretation of easy walk, I was really exhausted at the top and scared for the way down, the wheater was clowdy but dry nearly to the last 250 meters. But the rocks were already slippery and not easy to walk on. Maybe an easier trail in really dry wheather, but really sometimes steepish. And I would be careful... More

We did this walk in early March when there was a great deal of snow still on the ground. Some parts were very steep and I took to sliding down on the way back. Beautiful at the top though.
