How to get there:
This mountain is in Austevoll. From Bergen, take the ferry from Krokeide, then drive south from Hufthammar. Drive south along the west side of the mountain.
The Loddo trailhead has a signed exit (left) from the main road at a point where the main road is running quite near the coast. The trailhead location is N60.04668, E005.25938, elevation about 12 meter.
Route description:
Follow the nice walking path towards Loddo. Eventually, the path turns into a more normal trail heading uphill. Higher up, the trail again has several board-walks and staircases before arriving at the summit. Keep right at a trail fork about 300 meter before the summit.
The summit has a tower with a small viewing platform on top. The highest natural terrain is located quite close to the base of the tower.
I started from the trailhead around 1145, arriving at the summit after 30 minutes. Heidi had continued to lake Vinnesvatnet where she was going to do some recreational orienteering while I collected my mountains. Thus, I descended back to the place where I had seen a trail signed for Veten. From there, I continued to climb Skaftafjellet.
