SKIFORENINGEN SKRIVER DETTE OM ØSTMARKSÆTRA

Stedet ble reist i 1926 som serverings- og utfartssted, og brant allerede i 1927, men ble gjennoppbygget i 1928. Arkitekt var Thorvald Astrup. Under krigen bygget tyskerne et bunkersanlegg i fjellet under setra. Bunkeren ligger 20 meter ned i fjellet og består av en 70 meter lang bygning i to etasjer. Anlegget benyttes i dag av Sivilforsvaret. Østmarksetra drives i dag som restaurant og selskapslokaler, men fram til slutten av 1960-årene var det sportsstue her.

Østmarksætra er privat og de er ikke så glade for trafikk gjennom tunet, så det er derfor fint om man enten 1) går ned mot Ulsrudvann og tar nordover på en sti som går like forbi et bunkeranlegg som Tyskerne bygde under krigen. Når du har passert et rødt falleferdig hus i dette anlegget går stien bratt opp vestover, eller 2) tar stien som starter 15 før bommen opp til Østmarksætra. Det siste alternativet er ikke så bratt.

The place was built in 1926 as a restaurant, but burned down already in 1927. It was re-built the year after, in 1928. The architect was Thorvald Astrup. During the second world war the Germans built a bunker facility in the rock beneath Østmarksætra. It lies 20 meter down below the houses on the top, and comprise a 70 meter long two story building. Nowadays, the facility is used by the Civil Defense. The Østmarksætra itself has been a restaurant and reception room from the late 60s.

Østmarksætra is a private establishment and they are not too happy about people passing through their yard. Thus, to reach the Cache, please choose one of the following altenatives: 1)take the road down to Ulsrudvann and go north on the path passing a bunker facility from WW-II. There in a steep path leading to the Cache just passed a red old house. Or, 2) use the path starting 15 meters below the barrier on the road up to Østmarksætra. The latter involves more gentle terrain compared to the first.
