The Straumsbukta classic. This was SS2 for Tromsø Enduro 2013. A rather long and not too steep trail, good for those days when you feel rather like playing around instead of technical challenge. The locals where a bit overwhelmed lately (2014) by the large amounts of bikers, so please keep that in mind and be extra careful to stay on the trail or avoid this area in wet conditions.
~40 min from Tromsø. Level: Easy. Descend: ~15 min
Parking here, bike along the road until you can turn left here to come to the trail head. Enter the woods and hold right, going up towards a more leveld trail which leads left (north). Follow the obvious trail. When descending, this part in the woods can be a bit sketchy due to varying light conditions, of-camber trail and roots. You will cross a little creek about half way to the tree line. Continue up and out of the tree line to the first top (Peterbolhaugen, 367m). Behind, the trail crosses a little saddle and goes up to Grønnlibruna (401m). In the saddle goes a trail to the right (south-east) towards the Bjørnlitippen trail head.
There are many alternative trail options (more XC-style) around Grønnlibruna, Gårdstippen and Bjørnlitippen. Some local bikers are doing a very good job in reinforcing and maintaining the trails!
