Traffic and safety 

Guleslettene wind farm is fantastically located, and the area is a popular hiking destination. Following the development of the power plant, the area has become more accessible than before, and it has been developed for walking, skiing and fishing. There are several hiking trails in the area, with parking both at the start of the hiking trail from Magnhildskaret and at the access road to the wind farm next to the service building. See for marked hiking trails. 

A 2.3 km light trail has been built from the car park. At the end of Langevatn, a ski lodge / heating room has been built and is open to everyone. A fishing pier has been made by Kupevannet, adapted for the disabled. Several places in the area, resting- and picnic areas have been made and a walking bridge was built at the east end of Langevatn to link the hiking trails. 

Everyone is welcome to walk in the area of the wind farm, but visitors must take precautions when the weather is bad.
