The overview below describes the round trip from the parking lot by the Søral main gate west.
At the intersection to the Husnes Marina, turn left onto the gravel path, over the Stabburshaugen hill, and down to Lake Opsangervatnet.
A recommended round trip from here goes southwest from the entrance to Statoil/ICA, along Lake Opsangervatnet through the park, past the camp ground and rowing club and continues to Kaldaneset.
Søralløypa continues on the sidewalk towards the east until you reach the traffic roundabout ”Samspel” and from there towards the north to Søral’s administration building. 100 meters before the parking lot turn right onto the overgrown forest road up to the highway. Go left along the highway for 400 meters to the rest area, and from there for 300 meters to the bus stop and turn left onto the forest road back down to Søral’s administration building. From here, go back along the sidewalk and turn right onto the gravel path along the fence towards Søral. Go back to the parking lot along the 1066 meter long oven hall.
