How to get there:
Drive north on E-39 from Bergen to Knarvik. Make a left in the first traffic circle. Follow the road as it descends, then bends right and continues uphill. Just as you reach a flat section, note a sign pointing right that says Åse 1.3. On your left there is a gate (closed or open). Park next to the road just beyond the gate. This location is N60.58234, E005.26955, elevation about 110 meter.
Route description:
Pass through a "door" in the gate and hike along the dirt road that starts here. Just as this road completes a gentle uphill, do look carefully on your right to spot a trail sign that shows where the trail to Vassberget starts. This location is N60.58651, E005.26020, elevation about 130 meter. Take this trail and follow it to the summit.
I started around 1240. Somehow, I missed the sign and walked quite a bit too fsr along the road. I then crossed right and struggled in bad terrain before hitting the trail just before the summit. I arrived at 1320. The view was very nice. I returned along the trail and was back at my car by 1355.
The next peak is Elsåsfjellet.
