  Gyrinakken trail head at Leikongeidet.


From the junction between roads 61 and 654 on the island Gursk°ya, approximately 18.7 km south on road 61 from the ferry port at Hareid:

- Drive 7.1 km south, in the direction of Larsnes, on road 61.

- Turn left where signed for "Skytebane" and drive a couple of hundred metres towards the go-cart track. Park before a gate.

Start your walk by heading for the far corner of the go-cart track. Locate a path heading up into the gully and follow this path all the way up to the summit, which is marked by a nice cairn. There is also some telecomm installation a little below the summit.

Descend by reversing your ascent route.

My second hike this Saturday, and Arnt also joined me despite his original plan to only join Rjňhornet. This was a quick hit-and-run hike, with just a short summit stop.

After the hike we picked up Arnt's car by the Rjňhornet trail head, before heading to the local store for some light food. Then onwards to Rem°ya for another short hike.
