How to get there:
From Bergen, first drive to Eikelandsosen (E-16 to Trengereid, Hwy. 7 Samnanger, then Hwy. 48 towards Mundheim.) From Eikelandsosen, continue along Hwy. 48 to the intersection called Kilen. Immediately before this inersection, you have a gas station on your right hand side. Find parking off the road near the bus stop. This location is N60.20290, E005.85360, elevation about 30 meter.
Walk back along the road you just came towards the gas station. Before you get to the gas station, go right on a small road that serves a single house. This road turns into a trail. Continue to a small hilltop, a trail forks left here, if marked well, you may follow this. It is likely better to just continue ahead, the trail will then descend a bit to reach some wet meadow.
There is supposed to be a trail with markers that will guide you to the very top.
I started at 1200. After reaching the meadow, I lost the trail, partly due to snow on the ground. I picked a reasonable way uphill and recovered the trail about 25 meter from the summit.
Arriving at 1235, I spent 10 minutes looking around. Descending the same way as I hiked uphill, this took 30 minutes.
