There is a steep hike up to the peak. Some people think the trail is a bit scary with smaller children, but the kids show great joy in getting to the top - so give it a try. It's worth it.
From the parking lot at Sem follow the path around the Holtet manor house belonging to Skaugum, before passing the large pressure pool for Asker's water supply and arraiving by the information board for the Skaugumsåsen nature reserve.
The ridge is the northernmost growing site for mistletoe that are protected in Norway. It is evergreen and feeds on other trees.
Now the ascent begins, and then the path follows som up-and-downs to the top. Enjoy the view from the Drøbaksundet to Oslo.
Finish the tour with a visit "Smia" where NaKuHel has home-made food, grows vegetables, has a gallery with art exhibitions and somethimes arrange themed events.
