Overview
Details

It takes an hour from Storrsheia and up to the top. Hint: bring binoculars. Fantastic views from the top!

Svartaknuten is a great summit trip for the whole family. The mountain at Vikeså has an altitude of 499 meters and a beautiful view of Bjerkreim's many valleys and mountains.
Hiking trail: From Storrsheia up to Svartaknuten, down to Svela. You don't need to climb, but the terrain is a bit rugged. There are many hills. It is the shortest to walk from Storrsheia, but is well marked and nice to walk from both Svela and Litle Svela.
If you arrive on the E39 from Vikeså, take a left turn after the picnic area at Storrsheia and find parking at the farm here.
There is parking at Svela also, it is found on the first road to the left from the road towards the centre of Vikeså in direction of Ognedal/Kløgetvedt.
The car park at Storrsheia is 240 meters above sea level. Svartaknuten is 499 meters above sea level and the car park at Svela is 100 meters above sea level. It takes an hour from Storrsheia and up to the top. Feel free to bring binoculars. Fantastic views from the top!

Hiking description: There is a good gravel road the first bit up from the parking lot at Storrsheia. Then turn left at the crossroads, onto a slightly rougher road. Follow this to the top. Where the road goes down towards Svela, take off from the road and up on the path after red marks. It's about 30 minutes to walk from where you take off here to the top. It can be a little wet on the ground, but the markings also run between rocks and on rocks. When you go down again and come to the forest road you can continue further down to Svela. Then you follow the markings on the road to the right after you have walked about 100 meters back on the road to Storrsheia. Here there is a nice view down towards Vikeså centre.
Other associated trails: The trip starts on a forest road that is connected to a network and marked trails both over to Vaule, to Vaule/Røysland, Svela and Litle Svela, so you can walk the trip with different starting and ending points. The actual trip from the forest road and up to the top is the same round trip.
