Månafossen waterfall is with its 90 metres in free fall the tallest waterfall in the county of Rogaland. The hike starts at Eikeskog where the track is combined with stair climbing on the first part of the hike. You'll have some chains to hold on to on the steepest areas, however this is relatively easy. On the way, there are facilitated lookout points to see the falls. Månafossen is ranged no. 9 in Norway, and is one of the largest tourist attractions in the county. Your hike should not, however end here. You will most certainly be able to continue yet another small climb, for another half an hour. Suddenly, you find yourselves at the ancient restored mountain farm of Mån. Up until 1915, people lived here at the starting point of valley Fidjadalen. Spend a day or two, there are nice camping grounds on the grass fields down towards the river. It is also possible to stay the night at Friluftsgarden Mån, however this must be booked in advance. If you bring along your fishing pole, there are good chances of catching a mountain trout or two. (Månafossen hike: 1 hour return trip). Friluftsgarden Mån (Mån: 2 hours return trip) The property at Mån (around: 8,000 acres) is owned by Jæren friluftsråd. The main house at the farm has been completely restored and a new building has been built on top the ancient barn foundations. In this new build, there are beds for around 30 people. In the basement, an exhibition has been set up to display the history of the mountain farm, Frafjordheiene landscape protection area as well as showing the possibilities for recreation in the area.  For a longer hike: The track continues into Fidjadalen valley to Stavanger Trekking Association's cabin Blåfjellenden (6 hours).
