How to get there:
From Bergen, drive to Trengereid, then take Hwy. 7, after the long tunnel in Samanger, go right in the traffic circle onto Hwy. 48. Drive past Eikelandsosen. At the intersection in Holdhus, measure and go 1.1 kilometer further. Just before the road starts downhill, turn right onto the beginning of a tractor road. There is parking for one car here. This location is N60.22937, E005.84420, elevation about 130 meter.
Cross the road and the small field, then follow smaller trails to cur across to the base betwwen Høghovda and Russåsen. A tractor road climbs almost to the broad, shallow saddle between our hill and its lower north summit. Turn more towards the summit (right) and follow easy terrain to the top.
I started at 1340 after a hike of Stoåsen. The terrain was easier than anticipated and I arrived at the summit at 1415. After a short break, I returned back to my car and a nice drive back to Bergen.
