Sukkertoppen peak is a well know hike among the people living in Ålesund and the trail is also well used. Sukkertoppen gives you great views of the city, the fjords and the mountains.
The trail starts by Hessa elementary school. You can park there after school hours and during weekends.
You can take the bus from downtown Ålesund. There are several buses going to the same area so take a look at the timetable at Entur.
From Hessa elementary school go across the street and into Sukkertoppvegen road. After the house with number 22 take a right and follow the trail up through the forest. The trail starts as a small gravel road but changes gradually to a narrower trail. The trail is easy to follow all the way up to the top.
