How to get there:
From the center of Asker, go north towards the lake Semsvatnet. Turn left and drive to a small parking area serving a shooting practice field. This location is N59.84248, E10.38065, elevaation about 230 meter.
The trail forks right almost immediately from the small road serving the shooting area. The trail is marked with blue paint. Follow the main trail all the way. There are a few forks where the correct trail is well signed for Bergsåstoppen. The route is slightly less than 2 kilometer one way with an elevation gain of slightly more than 200 meter.
The top is a nice viewpoint. A summit register is located on a good looking pine tree.
I had attended a 60 year reunion (for entering elementary school) the day before and I was staying with my sister Elisabeth. When I suggested at breakfast to climb the highest point in the municipality of Asker, she immediately answered a sporty YES. We drove over and located the trailhead, then started out at 12 - noon. The climb is more than 200 vertical meter, but already shortly before 1245 we could sit down and enjoy the very good view of Asker and the Oslo fjord.
We brought some fruit for snack and spent 30 minutes in nice sunshine. Leaving at 1315, we were back down by Elisabeth's elegant BMW car in 30 minutes.
We then drove back to Bærums Verk where we had an outdoors small lunch including a nice weissbeer for me.
A bit later Elisabeth drove me to the airport train and I returned to Bergen without any incidents. A warm thank to Elisabeth for great hospitality, nice meals and a very good hike.
