Trip notes, Oct 12 2007
I had limited daylight this Friday afternoon, but found there was ample time for a visit to Signalen. I had lots of undone activities on this island. Hiking from the north was one example. I didn't have much time to plan this walk, but I started norgei3d.no once I came home from work, and had a complete overview within the minute.
I found the trailhead right away and was on my way 17:30PM. It was already too dark for taking good pictures, but there are ways around that problem. The dog - Troll - wasn't very keen on walking, so I carried him up to the dam, and then some. Above the dam, I told him to walk (in a firm voice), which he did.
We reached the top of Signalen 18:00PM. I had expected to descend the same way, but noticed a couple of hikers on a ridge further west. Cool. My previous 7 walks had all been roundtrips, and now I didn't have to break this new trend. We were back at the car 18:30PM. A nice hour had been spent on Valderøya, and now I knew 2 more routes to this nice island top.
