Those who choose to go on the trip to Storaberget will see both older and newer cultural monuments along the way. Well up at the top, a magnificent view opens up in all directions. In good weather you can see not only Riskalandet and Lutsivassdraget, but also far to the sea and Ryfylkeheiene. Storaberget offers challenges and experiences for both large and small hikers. From Hogstad, follow the farm road sign no. 400-416 to the first farm on the left hand side. From here on a cart road in pasture to the waterworks from the days of the war. Follow the signs for Storaberget further in an easterly direction to those to Lomstjørna. There is a path further between the pond and over voices in the southernmost pond. From here clear path to the ancient fortification. From the fortification there is a clear path further up to the highest peak on Storaberget. Return the same way. The most eager can extend the trip to a round trip where you get to see Grinavatnet. Signs stand by the inner Lomstjørna.

Grinda waterworks Sandnes waterworks did not have the capacity to meet the Germans' need for water. As early as 1941, the Germans therefore planned their own waterworks. The choice fell on the Grinavassdraget which consists of Grinavatn and Lomstjørn. The capacity was estimated at 800,000 cubic meters per year. The water was of excellent quality and the waterworks had something as rare as an alkalization plant. The stone house that housed the facility stands to this day. The water flowed through crushed marble so that it became less acidic. The water was led in a tunnel to a pressure basin above Hogstad, from here in a ten-inch main line to Sandnes. The main line was 10 km long, half wooden pipes. This waterworks supplied Sola with water until 1959.
