How to get there:
Drive from Bergen towards the airport Flesland /´(Hwy. 580). Make a right in the traffic circle after
passing the big Telenor building on your left. This road is Hwy. 173. Drive 1.9 kilometer. You should be
going downhill in a big right turning curve. Watch for the small road called Storrinden that forks left.
Drive a short section and locate parking for 3-4 cars on your left. This is the first trailhead, location
N60:18.359, E005:15.850, elevation about 85 meter.
You may continue on the small road that heads slightly uphill, to a somewhat larger parking area at
location N60:18.515, E005:15.330, elevation 100 meter. This is the second trailhead.
From the first trailhead, hike along the small road that heads (gradually) uphill until you arrive at the
second trailhead where the road is closed by a gate. Continue along the road, you may take an obvious
short-cut going left to save a big left curve on the road. Either way, this little raod will take
you all the way to the summit.
I had retrieved my car after a Friday party, then decided to visit a few local tops in the south part
of Bergen. The first one, Storrinden, I had just noticed on my map. A very impressive name, perhaps better
for a peak of at least 1500 meter. I parked at the first trailhead at 1025 and arrived at the summit around
1040. Interesting place with many signs of military activity. I was back down at my car by 1100.
