Starting point

Take road 105 from Jondal towards Folgefonna. After 5.0 km follow the left hand fork at the road sign to Molve. After 160 m (passed a bridge) you keep to the road leaving on the right. Then after 700 m choose the gravel road going left. After about 100 m you come to a gate. If you continue by car this is a toll road.  From here the gravel road (2.8 km) is good and ends at a good car park. Parking at own risk.

About the trail

The last bit of the road going right (200 m) ends at Vassenden. Here you can find the information board which describes the hikes in this area. If you go 20 m further up you can find the hiking signs for Stuasete and Knutstøl. Follow the route to Stuasete, which will take you along the lake side of Vassendevatnet, over marshland before it then rises up to the mountain cabins of Stuasete. Hiking signs here show the routes to Dåren and Vatnasete. Take the route for Dåren. The path up to Dåren is steep in parts. The end point of the trip is at a large, singular rock on the mountain ridge.
