A great trail for hiking which involves crossing Vestdalsheii mountain range, from Hra to Seyisfjrur. Vestdalsheii heath used to be a frequently travelled road. People walked along Gils river, across the heath, and into Vestdalur valley.
A good choice involves starting the walk to Vestdalsvatn lake by the reservoir at Heiarvatn lake (N65 14,394- W1410,253) in Fjararheii heath and head north. This is a nice walk in rolling hills. When you get to Vesdalsvatn you can choose between three routes if you dont want to take the same route back.
Down Vestdalur by a staked trail to Seyisfjrur; down Gilsrdalur valley down towards Gilsrteigur farm (north of Eiar in Fljtsdalshra) or go west of Bjlfur mountain down to Stafdalur valley. The cylinder with the visitors log book and stamp is where Gils river runs out from the lake. You will need to cross the river if you choose to walk from Fjararheii.
