Frábær leið nálægt Hveragerdi (u.þ.b. 40 mín akstur frá Reykjavík).
Frá Hveragerdi ríður þú upp á fjallið með gömlu mölvegi.
Þegar þú ert uppi á hálendiinni fylgirðu veginum þar til það tekur þig að þjóðveginum (hringvegur nr. 1) sem þú þarft að fara yfir. Haltu áfram vestur í hundrað metra þar til þú kemst á leiðina sem leiðir til Ölkelduháls. Fylgdu þessari gravelroad norður í um 8 km upp á toppinn af fjallinu (u.þ.b. 460 m hár).
Einu sinni efst, lærið hnakka því þaðan á hreinu niðurlagi skemmtilegt.
Fylgdu lögunum sem leiða þig niður í Reykjadal þar til þú endar í Hveragerdi aftur.

Leiðin liggur í gegnum mjög varma svæði með miklu gufu og heitu vatni sem kemur upp í gegnum jörðu. Heitt áin rennur í gegnum Reykjadal. Þetta er frábært tækifæri til að þvo svita frá klifra upp á toppinn.

Gakktu úr skugga um að ekki falli inn í eitthvað af heitu leðjunni sem þú finnur á leiðinni!

    Fantastic is the right word! We did a part of it, riding up the walkers path and coming back the same way. But at the top end we did an extra 10 km loop via Seltenger involving some bike carrying and discovered an impressive gorge with overhanging natural arch. The hot river was icing on the cake.

    Nice trail but I think things have changed a bit in this area since the original description was made. Firstly the track is about 60% gravel or sealed roads, fortunately most of which is on the uphill, but some of what presumably was 'single track'' downhill has been ruined (from a free riding perspective) due to a well benched track being put in to cater fore the many tourists that now flock to the hot-creek. The single track is now ca 40% footpath, but the rest is still fun as long as you are good at dodging the constant stream of tourists (this was in peak summer). I would not class this a 'difficult' ride. But still, well worth the effort, and the hot bath and scenery are superb.

    You are right it had changed a lot. I haven't ridden there in a few years. Also i think this was one of the first tracks i posted and i guess back then i rated it more difficult than i would today :) . Ratings are a bit problematic on Wikiloc anyway since there is no way to reference them.
