About Dalsnuten

The short hike up to Dalsnuten (323 meters above sea level) takes you along easy terrain up to the summit, providing beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and fjord. 

Getting there


From Stavanger, follow E39 for 15 kilometers until reaching the exit for Ganddal/Sandnes. Head north on Jærveien. After 500 meters, take a right onto Brugata. After another 500 meters, take a left onto Hoveveien. Stay on Hoveveien and continue straight through three different roundabouts onto the streets, Gravarsveien, Hanavaeien and Daleveien. Remain on Daleveien for 3.5 kilometers until turning right onto Fjogstadveien. Follow Fjogstadveien for 1.5 kilometers until you reach the free parking lot in Gramstad on the righthand side of the road. 

Trail description

From the parking lot at Gramstad, cross the road and head north along the eastern shore of Gramstadtjørn lake and then along the western edge of a small forest after leaving the hard-packed gravel road. After hiking past the small forest, the trail continues slightly northwest, next to the eastern side of a small hill and up the last steep climb to the top of Dalsnuten.

On the return trip from Dalsnuten, we recommend following a different route down. Head east from the top of Dalsnuten and climb down the steep hill heading into the small forest. Walk along the eastern side of the lake found right at the base of Dalsnuten and around the northern side of the small hill, Revholen. 

Here, you will meet the hard-packed gravel road which you will follow south until you return to the start of the hike. 

The second part of the hike is accessible with strollers and wheelchairs until reaching Revholen (186 meters above sea level).


  • A great place to fish near Dalsnuten is at the southwestern side of Revholstjørn lake.
  • Bring your swimsuit to cool off in Revholstjørn lake.
