Tronoberget is a very accessible viewpoint above Lom village. A well-worn and marked trail runs from Tronodden and straight up the mountain. Tronberget is not an independent mountain, as the plateau behind keeps rising towards the Tafjord and Sunnmøre region. The hike up the forest takes 1-1,5 hours and you'll get a fine view towards the valley and the Otta river. You can also descend via Grotheim and make a round trip hike.
At the foot of the mountain, you will also find a number of easy climbing routes. Search the internet for Tronoberget and Klatring for more information.
