The hike up to Lauvdalsbrea (1597 masl) is altogether 7 km and you walk the same route up and down.
Follow the path from the road up to the first plateau. Here the path will partially be gone but it's easy to follow the cairns in the terrain further to the top.
It is somewhat steep and some easy climbing in the steepest area. Towards the end you walk on stones until you reach the top.
The hike can be combined with fishing in the pond by the parking lot. Fishing permit required.
