How to get there:
Drive Hwy. 7 to Norheimsund, turn right (south) on Hwy. 49. Drive slightly more than 3 kilometer (Vikøy), turn right to Byrkjeland. Drive all the way to the top and park next to a field with lots of turkeys. Location N60.33393, E006.20462, elevation about 205 meter.
Take the tractor road that continues straight, then fork left and follow a trail uphill. Higher up, the trail may be ahrd to follow, but you are then only a very short distance from the top. The top is on a small forest ridge. The precise location is not well defined, but it is easy to walk across the highest section.
I walked up in about 15 minutes and spent a few more minutes looking around as there is no well defined high point. The return took about 10 minutes. The most notable thing are the turkeys near the parking.
