How to get there:
Drive from Bergen to Trengereid, then Hwy. 7 to Norheimsund and onwards to Øystese. Follow the road through Øystese, then the road climbs steeply in a couple of curves. Drive to near the highest point on this section of Hwy. 7, then fork left onto Melstveitvegen. Fork right at the second opportunity, then continue uphill, roughly north, to the farm Melstveit. One can drive a bit further to near the top of a local hill and park at location N60.39107, E006.24849, elevation near 330 meter.
Follow a tractor road onwards as it descends, shortly branch left among big trees and descend to the base of the next, fairly steep hillside. Climb this generally traversing uphill and left, there are some small trails that may be followed. Once up onto gentle terrain, head more right among the trees to locate the highest point. There is no view - only forest. There is a marker of some sort at or near the highest point.
I visited this hill on my way home to Bergen. The hike from the car to the summit takes about 10 minutes.
