How to get there:
Drive from Bergen to Trengereid, then Hwy. 7 to Norheimsund and onwards to Øystese. Follow the road through Øystese, just afger it turns more right and still inside town, locate a sign for Torpe and the road Torpevegen going left, first across a small open space, then climbing right. Drive this road uphill past the farm Hellestveit and to the very top of the hill, park near location N60.39138, E006.21633, elevation close to 275 meter.
Climb (easy) the small cliff right in front of you (see picture). Walk uphill towards the forest and this gate. There is a good trail beyond the gate, walk a short way, then turn left and locate the highest point among trees.
I visited this top on my way home to Bergen. The hike is less than 10 minutes. There is no view from the highest point due to big trees.
