How to get there:
Drive south from Bergen to the village of Os. Make a left in the main traffic circle (in the centre of the village). Continue on Hwy. 552 (towards Hattvik) for approximately 4 kilometer. Locate a road that forks left. If you arrive at the ferry in Hattvika, you may be about 750 meter too far. Take this road uphill and locate parking just after a road fork. This is the trailhead, location N60:12.516 E005:31.755, elevation about 56 meter.
Route description:
A very clear forest road runs uphill on the left side of your road. Follow this road. There are several forks higher up, generally just stay left. Eventually, you want to ascend to the main crest, there are various small trails, but most likely you will also travel a little bit off-trail. The summit is marked with an old metal pole. There is very limited view from here. However, a bit further north-east, at location N60:12.282 E005:30.522, elevation about 245 meter, the view is quite good. Somebody even placed a bench at this location! (A very vague trail runs nearby.)
I left my car at 1515 and arrived at the summit around 1545. Next, I located the bench and the viewpoint, sort of by accident. I took a slightly different path back to the car, arriving there around 1615.
