(English translation:) The Arnar Hill path is the old route down to ReykjavÝk town, with a section of it still here at Arnarhˇli. The route was from Arnarhˇlsholt, which was later called the Skˇlav÷r­uholt, to the ridge along the Arnarshˇl stream. When new paths were laid on the hill in 1993, it was decided to preserve the old path from 1924, constructed over this ancient route. The routes are on the Reykjavik Archaeological Register and are protected by national law.
