  Rødlandstua trail head in Brusdalen.


From the round about where road E39 and E136 intersect, just east of Ålesund (at Moa), drive 7.4 km east on road E39. Park on the large area on the left hand side of the road.

Start your hike by heading up the wide path going almost parallel to the road back towards Ålesund. This path can be followed all the way to the summit, which is marked by a trigonometric point marker.

Descend by reversing your ascent route.

This was a post-work hike on a semi-grey Monday evening, and my first visit to Rødlandstua since 1998. I met six other hikers while descending.
