Route description:
There is a trail information sign at the beginning of the trail. Continue directly uphil at a very good path. When this path levels out, pay attention and take the trail that forks right. There is a sign (vertical) saying Brakstadfjellet at the fork. This trail runs nicely to the summit. The summit has a cairn and a large antenna serving the air-traffic to Bergen airport.
I started at 1325 and arrived at the top at 1355. It was raining all way. I was back down at my car (soaked) at 1420.
