Glæra is an old farming road between the Skjerdingsdalssætra farm and the old stone-vault bridge called Jøl bru. The trail is surrounded by steep mountains with a rushing river to keep you company.
This trail works best as a point-to-point hike through the valley, so have someone pick you up at the other end if possible. It can be hiked in both directions, but if you start at Skjerdingsdalssætra the trail is mostly downhill.
