How to get there:
Take the ferry from Krokeide to Hufthammar. Drive south, signs for Bekkjarvik. Drive through the small center of Bekkjarvik, then find parking. This may be possible near Selbjørn school, quite close.
Route description:
First locate the small dirt road leading to the beginning of the trail, there are several signs saying Kongskleiva. The steps starts near location N59.99945, E005.19897, elevation around 50 meter. Take the very well built stone steps that will connect all the way to the summit ridge. There, most people turn left to visit the view-point. Note, however, that the highest point is to your right, a nice, small trail heads over there, a quite short distance.
This was my 3rd. and last summit in Austevoll. A very fancy "sherpa-trapp" has been built. The ascent took about 15 minutes, descending in about 10.
