How to get there:
The best access is from Lommedalen. Drive the main road into Lommedalen, then be aware as you need to make a sharp left onto a smaller road in order to find the trailhead. This left turn is at location N59.96702, E10.47258. (Use Google!). Turn right shortly, you will then see a small parking next to a gated road that forks left. Park here, location N59.96875, E010.46429, elevation near 180 meter.
Route description:
Walk past the gate and follow this road until you get to a 3-way fork. Continue uphill on the middle road. Follow this until it ends at the farm Rognliåsen. (Keep right shortly before the road ends.) The highest point is located near a flag pole on the north side of the buildings.
I was staying with my sister Elisabeth who lives in the lower part of the Lommedalen valley. This hill is one of only 3 with prominence exceeding 100 meter in the municipality of Bærum. As I had visited the other 2 numerous times when growing up, this seemed like a good project on a cloudy Wednesday.
I left my car at 1425. It took me 40 minutes to walk the 4 kilometer to the summit. I jogged back down in 30.
