A classic trail down from the cable car above Tromsø. Downhill all the way, one small rocky part just above tree line, otherwise nice flowy trail with many small features to play with. If you are lucky you might get a lift with the cable car, but they are reluctand to transport bikes, especially in the turist season and quite expensive (240,- NOK for one ride inkl. bike, summer 2014).
~0 min from Tromsø. Difficulty: Easy/intermediate. Descend: ~8 min
Parking at the cable car parking space. Possible to walk up, but since there are several other trails up there I start the description from the top: From Restaurant of the cable car look for a trail descending just left from the playground going towards the powerline and inwards towards the Tromsdalen valley (east). The trail crosses 2 small creeks and turns towards left (west) ~20 hm above treeline. Just above treeline a bit steeper rocky part (responsible for intermediate rating). Open and flowy trail all the way down towards the first houses. In the lower part a second trail merges coming from the left (a steeper version starting at the restaurant as well), watch out for pedestrians coming onto the trail from there. At the exit cross the first 2 streets, turn left and then right to come back to the cable car parking. Or walk up again and ride some more!
NB: The cable car area has a lot of tourists/pedestrians, especially in summertime and good weather!
