Briefly about the trip
This is a suitable hiking area for young and old, which passes a great vantage point where you can look straight down on Ulsteinvik center. But see where you go, so you do not fall down the mountain! Right behind this beautiful vantage point you will find Trollskogen, a forest that is ideal for children's play. This trail does not take you up to Osberget's highest point, but it is well worth a visit. See the panoramic picture that shows you some of what you can see from the top of Osberget. On the north side of Osberget, Hødd IL has set up a mailbox. Here is also a small 'bench' where you can sit and watch the sunsets in spring and autumn - a fantastic sight! The trip is approx. 2 kilometers, but you can walk here for hours without getting bored. With a good book and coffee in the thermos, just enjoy this area. Same as start.
There are several starting options for this trip, but here we start from Osnesbrunene, We go south and turn left, up Osnesvegen, cross 'Vikebakkvegen' and follow this up until it hits 'Øvrevegen'. Here there is a walking and cycling path at the top of the road. We break off in the turn and follow a small visible ravine that goes behind the 'sharp turn' sign. You follow this raw approx. 130 meters, and enters a crossing path. This is the main path we must follow. Turn left here. After approx. 60 meters you come to a new crossroads. If you go south, you come down to the parking lot. Have chosen this little extra round so you can see the other hiking trails in the area. These are also well worth a visit. After another 30 meters, the path splits. We follow the southern path. We will enter this point again towards the end of the hike. This southern path is clear and we pass several more path divisions. The first trail divides you north towards the top of Osberget. A little used step continues towards the viewpoint, from Osberget. This route is not described here. But it is well worth taking the trip up! We continue west along the path. There are some bumps over some damp areas, the path is clear all the way to this great vantage point that will soon be in front of you. Here you just have to sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee or the like. The trip out here is just as nice all year round, all seasons have their charm. This is a widely used hiking trail, also in winter. As mentioned above, 'Trollskogen' is located directly behind the viewpoint. If you are an experienced hiker, you will be able to find the step that takes you back and up to Osberget's highest peak. We are not going there this time, but follow the path further north. A few meters behind the viewpoint, the path is secured with rope down a small slope. This is because it can be slippery over this rock. When you have come down the rock, the path divides again. We turn right here. The path to the left takes you down to the buildings at Skeide. After walking a few meters through the forest you come to a clearing. Here there is a great view to the north, there is also a log. This acts as a bench. Here there are beautiful views of the midnight sun, as well as sunsets in spring and autumn. We continue east and turn right at the next path division, and cross a 'bog' / wet area. Here the path begins to go down towards the parking lot. You will soon be at the intersection that leads you down to the car on 'Osnesbrunene'
