How to get there: Drive E-39 north from Bergen to Sognefjorden. You hit this fjord at the (south) end of the small fjord named Risnefjorden. E-39 continues on the right (east) side to the ferry at Oppedal. Take the left (west) side and follow signs for Rutledalen, this is 25 kilometer from E-39. There is another ferry at Rutledalen. Ignore this and continue a few hundred meters along Hwy 57 as it heads inland. Look for a sign to Brosvik, and take this small and narrow road as it forks right. Drive about 3.8 kilometer, this is just beyond the Brosvik farm. Here, you will see a small road that heads left (uphill). There is a "do not enter" sign as well as a "Privat veg" (private road) sign. You may park on the side of the road right here. This is the trailhead, location N61:03.873, E005:08.598, elevation 58 meter.
Route description: From the trailhead, follow the road all the way to the summit. The road is (extremely) well marked with poles that will show the way even if the road is covered by snow.
Comments: I did this hike with my son Tor Erling. The forecast was pretty good and the late November called for an easy hike. We left the car at 1100, arrived at the summit at 1220, spent 20 minutes with a pretty good view and returned to the car at 1340.
There is a rather large antenna structure (with buildings) at the summit.
