Route description:
Walk a couple of meter along the road, you will then see a trail heading uphill through a gate. This trail is marked with red/white painted sticks. The trail leads all the way to the first (false) summit. The highest point is about 550 meter north-east of this point. The terrain across to the proper high point is easy.
I left Bergen early and timed my driving to make the 0715 ferry. After some minor preparations, I was ready to hike by 0810. This hike is quite nice, early on you pass an old house that shows the signs of being uninhabinated. Higher up, you walk by several small ponds before ascending to the southernmost and most distinct looking summit. The view south from here is excellent. However, the highest point is located a short hike north-east. I was there after 1:15 hours. Good views on a nice day, some clouds, but also sunshine. I returned to my car in 1 hour after a 10 minute break.
