There are signs and an information board by the parking lot.
T marked to Kvanto from the sign by the end of the road at approx. 600m AMSL.

Difference in altitude
100 - 992m AMSL

Estimated Time
4 -5 hours round trip

Recommended advice
Few places have as harsh a climate as the area around Kvannto, and the map name Verhardo (harsh climate) seems appropriate.

There is an easy incline from the parking lot to the end of the forest road where the terrain flattens at approx. 600m AMSL. From here there are signs and T marking towards the south, first with a slight incline and then steeper up the ridge to the top where there is a cairn at Kvannto. There is a beautiful view of the mountains and Sunnhordland.
