Digergubben (527 masl.) and Midsundhornet (483 masl.)

The route takes you through steep terrain, however the stone steps makes this hike possible for many happy hikers. Now and then the stairs are a bit tall. Several places you will find nice stone benches where you can sit down, catxh you breath and enjoy the view. From "Kumlokket" towards the Midsundvatnet lake, you will also meet some steep sections.

About 100 meters from the Midsund lake, the path devides. Continue to the left to reach Digergubben and take the right direction to reach Midsundhornet. To reach Digergubben you must continue over the small stone bridge is crossing a stream. Afterwards you will find the stairs continuing towards the top. The landscape flattens a bit before the last part with some steeper parts again the last 400 meters.
