Bakkefjellet offers fabulous views of many mountains and villages in Askvoll and Fjaler municipalities.
Starting at the parking area by the waterworks, cross a small bridge over the river and continue on the waymarked trail up Engabølia. As you come up on Heia where it flattens out, you will see a sign for “Bakkefjellet”. Follow the trail to the right, which will soon take you past a river and up towards Grønelia. The trail is waymarked heading up the ridge, and offers endless fabulous views over Holmedal and the Dalsfjord. The trail passes behind the summit before arriving at the cairn.
Follow county road fv 609 to 6982 Holmedal centre. Above the church in Holmedal, turn off fv 609 onto the local road towards the mountain. After approx. 1.5 km, turn right and continue for approx. 1 km to the parking area.
