Ascent Trip Report

I arrived at a blocked gate that would only let residents into the private forest in their cars. I talked to a very nice lady that was driving out and found out that non-residents could hike and ride bikes in the area, but were not allowed access in their cars. She asked where I was going and I showed her the map and pointed to Kjerkeberget. I was super lucky. She was the home owner of the farm house at the base of the hiking trail for Kjerkeberget. I asked her if she could give me a ride to the trailhead and she agreed after making a phone call to let her friends know she would be late arriving at her appointment.

She told me it was 13 km from the blocked gate to the trail head. We chatted along the drive. It was very nice. When she dropped me off I thanked her and offered her payment for the ride and her time. She politely declined and waved as she drove off. I hiked up the mountain which was a nice trail with consistent grade up. Once back down to the road I hiked the 13km back out to my car. :) I am super grateful that she was so nice and gave me a ride into the forest to the trail head.
