  Start of forest road towards Aakvikknoken.


From the ferry port at Halsa drive the narrow road (Halsabakkane) uphill 0.8 km and follow the road left. Drive another 2.3 km and park on the left hand side of the road where the road starts to go downhill.

Start the hike by following the road 120 metres back towards Halsa. Turn left onto a forest road, which you follow up to 275m. There are some other forest roads branching off the main one here and there, but "your" forest road has a clear track showing where people walk. When you get to 275m the forest road fades away and you should turn right onto a path that will take you all the way to the summit, where you will find a summit registration book.

Descend by reversing your ascent route.

Our third hike of the day was a longer hike than the first two hikes, and with this one I had plenty of uncertainty about the navigation. But 3-400 metres into the hike we met a local on his way down, and he confirmed we had found the correct route, and also that the rest of the route would be very much straight forward. This proved to be the case, and after 35 minutes of walking we got to a very nice summit with fine views to the sea and surrounding mountains.

After signing the summit register I made a quick visit to the distinct little top located 55 metres south of the summit, since this could potentially be a slightly higher point, but both personal GPS measures and information on the maps after the hike indicates that the highest point is at the north end of the plateau.

While descending we met yet another hiker, and with a total of four hikers already having signed the summit register this grey and windy Friday this definitely seemed to be a popular top.
