Overview

Cross the main road from the parking lot and follow the signs towards Radiohola. From Radiohola take the path up southwest to Kolheller. There is an information board at this location. Follow the path further to where it meets the path from Hauge to Jamburfjell. As an alternative return from the top to the parking lot, you may follow the path down to Hauge instead of going via Radiohola. If you wish to extend the hike and turn it into a round trip, you can follow the path southwards to Ramnakulten. This is Halsnøy's highest point, 291m AMSL. From here you can return the same way for approx. 500 meters, and then take the right path by the sign directly back to the parking lot. See also the route description for Ramnakulten.
