A path along the railway

A path along the railway. In November 2009 a new path opened along the double-track railway that runs between Stavanger and Sandnes. The path is ideally suited to walking and bicycling along the scenic Gandsfjord. There are also good opportunities fishing in the fjord and at Vaulen beach there is good possibilities for swimming. Further south you will see the "skjeve tårn", a tower in concrete that was built as a test. In this area concrete platforms were built in a period of about 20 years. Now you will find offices and apartments here as well as Viking football stadium.


By foot:

The northernmost point of the path is the new pedestrian bridge over the railway at Kvalsberg in Hillevåg. Easiest access to this bridge is from the northern side of the road bridge that crosses the double track at Felleskjøpet (a coop) in Sandviksveien, or along the path from Solhøgda in Hillevåg.

By train to Jåttåvågen and walk north.
