  Rambergåsen trail head at end of Rambergveien.


From Moss centre (approximately 55 km south of Oslo on road E6) drive road 19 in the direction of Jeløya. Once you've crossed the short bridge between the main land and Jeløya, drive another 550 metres along Helgerødgata. Turn right at the traffic lights, onto the road Gimleveien, and drive 650 metres to where the road forks. Go straight ahead, continuing on Gimleveien, and follow the left curve after 100 metres. You're now on Rambergveien, and should follow this road 1.5 km to where it ends at a car park, at its highest point (the road actually continues, but this is a private road). Park here.

There are two wide paths starting from this car park, and you should choose the one at the far side. The path turns right after 30 metres, and from here you should walk north-east for 420 metres, to the top of a small pass. Turn sharp left and up to another small pass. From here continue a few tens of metres straight ahead, before heading right to the summit a few tens of metres away. The summit is not marked in any ways.

Descend by reversing your ascent route.



23. December 2012

The plan for this grey Sunday was to hike the two independent tops on the island Jeløya, which would also give me a municipality high point. But first I drove Sigurd to Kjerringåsen ski-centre, which in turn meant my shortest route to Moss was via Agnaltveien, which I had never previously driven (maybe I cycled it once or twice when I was 13-14). This drive was a little dodgy because of icy roads, so the driving was on the safe side.

When I reached what I assumed was the trail head I was happy to see tracks from other walkers in the 10-15 cm of snow, and I also suspected other hikers would be going in the same direction as me, hence making navigation a bit easier given the fact that all paths were covered in snow. Up at the upper pass I turned left, as this area seemed to have the highest point, but after having messed around a little I checked my GPS and realised that the summit was to be found at the other side of the small pass. For some reason this area was free of tracks, but with the GPS in my had I closed in on the way-point I had marked for the summit. When I saw a small bump ten metres in front of me I decided to assume this was the summit, and was very happy when I found a small poster on a tree at this point, stating that some kindergarten children has been here a while back, "at this the highest point in Moss". Case closed and I claimed the summit, before heading back down to my car and the drive across to Bjørnåsen.
