Eldrevassbergi seen from the trailhead

On Hemsedalsfjellet, highway 52 Gol - Hemsedal - E16, locate lake Eldrevatnet. The lake is not too far from where highway 52 begins to descend down to highway E16. Eldrevassbergi and its ridge is easy to spot. Find parking on one of the turnouts.

The trail:

In late may, no trails were visible. I headed for the nearest ridge, and it was rather steep. Rotten snow over the wetlands, and icy from the foothills and up. The trip up does not take more than one hour. There is a sign-in log at the summit cairn.
