- At 5.9 km find parking around the junction, without blocking for other traffic.

From where you parked walk back along the road, a few tens of metres, and turn right up a gravel road (this road starts 150 metres from the junction where you turned right onto Korshamna). Walk 70 metres and locate a path signed by wooden poles (painted red), on the left hand side of the road. Follow this road all the way to the summit. At the summit you will find an old trigonometric point marker on the ground.

This was my fourth and final hike this Wednesday evening, and I was definitely keen on getting home. The hike took me just over 30 minutes.
