lots of picnic and viewing stops The trail starts at Hellvik railway station and runs eastwards towards Egersund. It was extended all the way to Egersund (approx 8km) in 2005.
This trip is very easily extended into a much longer walk or cycle ride by joining the 7km Old Post Road trail at the Hegrestad farms, which are 3.3km from Hellvik station.
