How to get there:
From Bergen, drive north on E-39, cross the large floating bridge,
and continue across the next bridge to Knarvik. In the traffic circle,
turn left onto Hwy. 57 (sign for Mongstad). Follow this road through
a traffic signal, then uphill about 2 kilometer. Now, look carefully for
a small road that forks left. The road has a road sign reading
Erstadvegen. Take this road and continue uphill. Shortly after
reaehing more level terrain, you will find a traihead with
for Kvamsfjellet on your right hand side. It is possible
to park off the road just a few meter further along on the right
hand side. This location is N60.57874, E005.26108, elevation
about 155 meter.
The trail runs quite gently and first arrives at a
small, local hill with a mobile network antenna. This
place is called Svarthamrane. Continue onwards, there will
be a trail fork where a sign says Kvamme. Do not follow this,
but keep right and continue the very gentle slope up to
Kvamsfjellet. There is a cairn,and a visitor register,
with a sign at the top.
This trail is quite flat and very easy to follow.
I left at 1435 and arrived at the summit at 1500.
The return hike took about 20 minutes.
