Forest trail

All year

All day

Take a walk through the 1890s forest and learn about the woods as a resource and workplace.

In the very upper part of the open-air museum we have cut down timber to make the forest open and with a variety of  woods. Eventually it will look like the forest in the old days, with plenty of blueberry heather in the forest floor.

Information boards along the trail tell you about the importance of forests and the development of forestry throughout the ages. Along the way you will also find a lean-to where it is nice to have a rest.

The 1890s forest and the forest trail is built in collaboration with Mjøsen Skog.

Accessibility: Parts of the forest path are accessible with a pram, although it is a gravel path with some bumps and hills. Unfortunately, it is not well suited for people in wheelchairs. In winter, the forest path may be icy and is not cleared for snow.
