Hiking trip to Høgnipen, Rakkestad

Høgnipen is a great hiking area with a marked trail to a Stone Age settlement and lookout tower.

Høgnipen is a hill section that is mainly located in the southern part of Degernes in Rakkestad municipality, Østfold. The highest point is 191 meters above sea level, and the municipal border between Rakkestad and Sarpsborg runs here. The first people came to Rakkestad already 10,000 years ago. They settled at Høgnipen, on the trapping sites Rørmyr I and II and Mellommyr, which are among Norway's oldest jail sites.
The area is approximately 160 m above today's sea level, but in the Stone Age Høgnipen was a small island in the sea gap.

Høgnipen is a great hiking area with a marked trail to a Stone Age settlement and lookout tower. On Høgnipa there is a 5.5 meter high observation tower. The tower is in good condition, but the ladder up is somewhat unstable.

Follow FV 111 from Rakkestad towards Sarpsborg, follow signs from Historica to Bredholt.
