Recommended advice
The hike goes in a nice forest terrain on forest roads and paths, but some parts can be wet.

Alternative route at the beginning:
From the lumber storage yard approx. 200 meters after the parking lot, as an alternative you can go the marked route to the left via the old cottar’s farm “Holo”. Notice the beautiful walls and reflect on the amount of hard work used to construct them at the time. This route comes back to the main route, see ”Overview”.

Overview
After approx. 1 km on the forest road from the parking lot, turn left on the path into the forest. At the tip of Bjellandsneset, you can find the burial mound “Storarøyso” from the Bronze Age. Continue past ”Krabbhopen” in Åskesvik, which is nice resting and swimming area, and back to the forest road and to the parking lot.

This is an idyllic round trip in typical west Norwegian forest terrain, in close contact with the Husnesfjorden.
