Height difference
400 meters

Distance and amount of time necessary
About 3.8 km (2.3 miles). The hike takes about 3 hours in total (both ways)

Some advice
The first part of the hike follows a forest road, while the rest of the hike follows a path. The beginning of the hike is steep, but the terrain is flatter later on. A vantage point giving a very good view over the Samnanger fiord is found on the way.

Description of the hike
This is a nice hike where you will come by several nice vantage points. Parts of the hike is steep, and it can be somewhat demanding.

You will also find privately marked paths to old smallholdings at Ospekleiva and Nyseterbotn, as well as to Heiasetre. From Heiasetre, you can follow the path to Bjørnåsen or the old shieling road to Erikajorda in Reistad.

Wheelchair users:
This hike is not suitable for wheelchair users.
