Ekkertinden is one of those places, that you definitely want to visit. Almost everyone knows the famous Preikestolen, but this is Nordmøre's own top with a drop in their own backyard.
The hike is really steep and takes around two hours to get to the top, which stands in 1189 meters. But the view in the end is stunning and well worth the trip!
If you arrive by car you can park by Gjøra kapell and walk about 400 meters along the road until the trail starts on your left hand side.
The trail starts right by the road a bit north of Gjøra. It starts fairly steep throughout the forest, then flattens out before you climb the last meters up to Gjørashaugen. From there you will quickly reach the tree line and you will find a steep trail going up to the top. The top itself is very flat.
You can make this to a roundtrip by crossing over Litlhøa on the way back and from there down to Vollasetra. From Vollasetra just follow the trail down to Vollan and then follow the road back to Gjøra.
- There is a small supermarket in Gjøra
