Taksetnakken (aka Storenakken) is a forest hill / small mountain by Eidså, and as the above picture shows - it falls "into the shadow" of the higher Svartetua. Nevertheless, this is a short and nice hike, and you'll get a good view towards Svartetua, the Storebøra massif (across Syvdseidet), Vorakinna and Syvdsalpane.
Taksetnakken (Norge 1:50,000: -, Økonomisk Kartverk: 408m, UTM 32 V 327183 6889950) has a primary factor of 99m, towards the higher parent mountain Svartetua (842m). The saddle (approx. UTM 32 V 327451 6889347) is found in the saddle (Løsetskaret) between Taksetnakken and Svartetua. Ref. Økonomisk Kartverk (5m contours), the saddle height is defined through a fixed point - 309m.
GPS measurement read 411m (on the ground), averaged over a 5-minute period (error margin +/- 1,6m). Note that map point 401m is not the high point.

There is a gravel road on your right-hand side which is the beginning of the route. There are a few large garage buildings on the left-hand side. Find parking outside the fence.
Follow the gravel road 350m to the top of the hill. Turn left by a house and follow another road 200m along a field. From the end of the road, follow a forest path up to the antenna. Just before the antenna, you cross a wider path that runs up the west side of the mountain, and possibly - continues all the way to the top.
The top of Taksetnakken is marked by a signpost and a canister for the visitor's register.
