How to get there:
Drive from Bergen to Sotra. When you exit from the long tunnel, turn right in the traffic circle (Hwy. 561). Turn left shortly after you exit a small tunnel, this road is named Fjæreidevegen. The road ascends gently, soon you will enter a U-shaped (180 degree) right turn. Pull over to the left in the bend, there is a small space for one car off the road. This is the trailhead, location N60:22.392 E005:02.874, elevation about 64 meter.
Route description:
Walk along the road until the U-curve is about to end. Leave the road to your left along some vague trail or possibly more looking like a small creek. The path turns into a trail that can be easily followed to the summit.
I did this hike with Pål Jørgen. We left around 1140 and made the summit around 1155. Nice view in a low December sun. We returned to the car around 1210.
