Brookfield Orchard Beginner Loop

This is an easy nordic tour that is about 3.5 miles around the orchard.  While there are some tougher trails, the general route is to start at the Toll Road towards the left, turn right onto Mac Run at the bottom of the hill. Follow the Old East Brookfield Road, then turn to follow Lincoln Road,   Cross over the road, get back on North Connector, go uphill and then turn onto Oak Run (which is the easiest trail). 

After you cross the road again, you will continue on Oak Run, follow the stone wall, get on Great Woods Trail (which is rated more difficult) and head across the open field (hay U) into the woods.  Take Fruit Loop around the upper orchard, and then get back on the North Connector Trail.  Stay on North Connector through the orchard, turn left onto Mac Run, and make the short ascent to the parking lot.

Details

Romsdalen is an ideal climbing and skiing destination in Norway. It is easily accessible by train from either Oslo or Trondheim (nsb.no) or fly to Mølde. The access town is Åndalsnes. Most of the back country skiing needs a car but it is easy to hitch hike in this area because most locals are avid skiers/climbers and work offshore in the North Sea so they work 2 weeks then have 4 weeks free, so it isn't a problem to hitch. If you like warm, 24 hour light skiing. There is a road called Trollstigen that opens end of May or early June where you can ski right from your car at 2am. The best time for skiing here is spring..march, april. You ski right up from the fjord so each peak has amazing views. The classic mountain is Kirketakke.  I think Vengatind, Nonstind, and Finnan are also classics with over 1000 m runs.
