Location Rosendal.

Tour description From the parking lot, 300 meters along the road is without marking before the path turns up towards Skardshaug. The path goes first through outlying fields and mixed forest. Above the tree-line, the path follows small ridges and valleys called Rindane. The first top, Skardshaug, is halfway to Melderskin. The view here is excellent. The valley towards the southeast is the Hattebergsdalen Valley, an important entrance to the Hatteberg Water Way and Folgefonna National Park. The surface then turns into more rocks and less vegetation. The "moss carpet" and the fresh spring water in Holo are unexpected surprises. Here you may find snow all summer long. The cairn on the flat top plateau was built by the Norwegian Geographical Survey Department in 1913. There is a magnificent view towards the ocean, fjords and mountains, and the Folgefonna Glacier. Melderskin is often called "The Queen Among The Hordaland Mountains".
