Such a gorgeous trail and awesome workout! The view from the top is awesome, and if you keep going there’s another awesome waterfall area.

Hiked in to the bridge that crosses the Skoga River. 21 waterfalls along approximately 5 miles of moderate to challenging trail with an elevation gain of 520 meters. Yes I will do it again! Just keep going along the river and follow the numbered wooden stakes blazed blue on top!

The waterfall itself is spectacular, but you should definitely do the trail above the falls. Practically no people, and there are a ton of waterfalls along the river that feed Skogafoss. Plenty of opportunities to take pictures with hardly another person in sight.

Beautiful waterfall. But do yourself a favor and follow the trail above Skogafoss. More waterfalls, fewer people, terrific views.

I was there in May and took an early morning hike beyond the gate. There is a five mile trail that follows the river and it lets you view a ton of waterfalls. The photos came out amazingly. The only downside was that the day I was there was extremely windy. So windy that I ended up turning back about 2 miles in after I almost got blown off the plateau and into the river.

Great for photos! Bring a rain jacket. The wind can carry the water off the falls quite a distance.
