Overview
From Sjøstovo, walk the road up towards Brekke school and the intersection at the highest point. Turn right onto the forest road right before the intersection. Follow the forest road for 300 meters to the parking lot, and from there on the quality path to the top through Storaskar.

If you wish to extend the hike and turn it into a round trip, you may follow the marked path on the ridge down towards the north. This path goes down to the field by Kattanakken and out towards the view points at Aske and Aksdal. Walk further on the path and forest road down to Møllesvik, and on the forest back towards Krekjahaugen and the ferry dock/guest dock. Møllesvik is very idyllic, and Krekjahaugen is one of the most extraordinary burial mounds from the Migration Age that has been found in Sunnhordland.
