A popular destination for hikers and cyclists is Ringkollen in Krokskogen, and that's understandable. It's a wonderful area, covered in forest and with marked hiking and cycling routes, and in winter there is a choice of different ski slopes or tracks, there is also a ski stadium, an alpine facility, a ski jump and a ski slope with lights. Hot drinks can be ordered in the Ringkollstuen while the kids can play in the Legeland, which is just opposite the pub.
Krokskogen was located on the road between Oslo and Ringerike, which was quite busy in those days, and therefore there were a lot of good hiking stories, and there have been told wildly and widely about the many trolls and witches who live in the area. Parts of the trail follow the same route as the Bergenske Kongevej.
