How to get there:
Drive E-16 from Bergen. Continue E-16 past Trengereid towards Voss. Continue passing Dale, turn left at Bolstadøyri. There are two exits, the first is signed, a left turn immediately after you pass under a small bridge. Continue along a more narrow road to locate the signed road, 10 kilometer to Øvstedalen. Follow this nice dirt road as it climbs to a pass. There is parking just before the pass at the right hand side. This location is N60.65704, E005.94855, elevation about 490 meter.
Route description:
Walk a few meter to the highest point of the road and locate a small trail that heads west (left when looking in the direction that you have been driving). Follow this trail, it is vague in a few places, very much so as you cross a larger meadow. However, you should be able to pick it up when getting closer to the small ridge-lines that runs gently uphill towards Slåttenovi. This is an easy and straightforward hike. A small cairn marks the summit.
I arrived at the trailhead after my first hike up in Eksingedalen, the time was 1520, time for a short "bonus" climb. The terrain was easy and I followed the vague trail most of the way, arriving at the summit after 25 minutes. Good views, to snow capped peaks further inland, but also back down to Bolstadfjorden. The return hike took 20 minutes, a nice way to conclude the day.
