How to get there:
This hill is located right next to the populated area of Voss. A road serves the summit area, but this is a toll road, at least when approached from the way I came. (NOK 100 in 2017). I parked before the signs saying that this toll was due if driving any further. This location was N60.61165, E006.49949, elevation about 400 meter.
It is (perhaps?) possible that one can approach this road from the opposite side and that the restrictions/rules are different. I did not investigate this.
One may follow a road essentially all the way to the summit. There are variants depending on your starting location. One may also save some time (and more distance) by doing some short-cuts where the road winds around in rather big curves. From the end of the road at location N60.60908, E006.46447, elevation about 645 meter, proceed across pretty flat terrain to the summit marker.
I was driving back to Voss, then decided to explore this small hill along the way. I left my car around 1130, walked along the toll road, then took a short-cut up what looked like a ski trail followed by a steeper (off-trail) climb of the hillside that reconnected with a road higher up. This road ended essentially at the summit, only a short hike remained across to the summit marker. The ascent required about 30 minutes from where I parked my car.
