How to get there:
From Bergen, drive E-16 towards Voss, fork right onto Hwy. 7 in the traffic circle at Trengereid. Continue past the innermost part of the Samanger fjord. Turn right just before a tunnel, the road is signed for Haga. Drive along this more narrow road (which will get you to Tysse). You should turn left where there is a sign for Idrettsbane (Athletic field), this location is at N60.38575, E005.76775, elevation about 20 meter. There is a sign that says Hagabakkene. This road is narrow, with sharp curves. You should drive 2.1 kilometer from the road fork. You will notice that a small road forks left, then immediately, there is a spot for parking on your right hand side.
Walk up the old forest road that starts where you parked. I forked left higher up, then continued along various deer trails. The terrain is easy to hike and the summit is directly uphill.
Comments: I left my car at 1135 and arrived at the summit 20 minutes later. The return hike took about the same amount of time.
