The trail over Odnesberget is steep but offers excellent views over the Randsfjorden and the Dokka delta. The Dokkadelta National Wetland Centre have constructed a viewpoint in Odnesberget nature reserve with funding from Sparebankstifelsen DNB. The viewpoint «The Eyrie» was created by Hans Magne Lunde.
You will also find a lean-to in Odnesberget with views towards what was once one of Norway’s largest ski jumps. The ski jump was first constructed in 1926 and was demolished in 2008. It is most known for its largest jump, with a critical point of 117m, but there were also four smaller jumps. Birger Ruud set a world record in 1931 with 76.5 metres. Johanne Kolstad set a world record for women during the same event of 46.5 metres.
