Difficulty YDS class 1
How to get there:
From Bergen, first E-16 to Trengereid, then Hwy-7 across to
the Samnanger fjord. After the long tunnel, turn right in the
traffic circle onto Hwy. 48. After leaving the fjord, the road runs uphill.
immediately after a small hilltop, find parking on the left hand side.
This is the trailhead, location 60.33723, 005.69083, elevation about 190 meter.
Take the trail that starts directly from the parking. This trail
runs uphill to an area with a few cabins. Pass very close to one cabin, then
ascend more with a waterfall on your right. Immediately, when you reach more
level terrain, there is a trailfork. The trail going right has a sign
saying Fløyen. Take this trail and follow it until you cross the
river in a convenient location. Leave the trail here, then follow smaller
deer trails that will keep you above the lake Stemmevatnet.
Gradually, turn more south while following small meadows, turn a small, local
hill on its right hand side and finally, ascend the slopes to gain
the Såta summit.
Looking carefully, you should locate a single rock
that marks this summit.
A grey morning with a late breakfast. Just right for
visiting a forest summit in Samnanger. I left my car at 1220 and
arrived at the summit at 1315. After 10 minutes taking a couple of photos,
I returned back, picking a slightly better route in the upper section.
Back at the car by 1400. The trip was concluded back home with a warm
sauna and some newly made bakery from Heidis skilled hands.
