MJELKHAUG 

Grading: RED – Challenging

Estimated time for total trip: 4 hours

Difference in altitude: 25 – 1.005 m AMSL

Overview

Cross the bridge south of the waterworks and follow the path straight ahead in the first junction. After a short walk, turn right to the path marked Mjelkhaug. There is eventually a somewhat steep incline up the Hellandslia to 600 m AMSL, where the terrain flattens before another steep incline up to Mjelkhaug.
There is a view of large parts of Sunnhordland, including the ocean and fjord towards the south and west, Manen, Englafjell and the Rosendal mountains towards the north, Ulvanosa towards the east. You will find Mjelkhaug in the DNT App SjekkUt.

Recommended advice

From the top, one should go to the Mjelkhaugsteinen rock which is located approx. 300 meters east of the cairn. The rock is visible from the ocean and in old times was used as a sailing marker.
It is approx. 12 meters long, 7 meters wide, and 7 meters tall.
An alternative return can be down over Svaneheia to the Vardhaugselet mountain farm, and via Nordfjell back to the parking lot.
