The Kløvstien trail climbs up the steep mountainside, past Stigfossen Waterfall, to the Trollstigen Viewpoint. The trail is the old road between the regions of Romsdal and Sunnmøre, and weaves up alongside Trollstigen Road.
Until Trollstigen Road opened in 1936, Kløvstien was the only route up and down the mountainside. It was a dramatic and dangerous journey, only navigable on foot.
Today, tough sections of the trail feature chains and stone steps for increased accessibility.
