Rosendal.

Overview

From the parking lot by the church, the distance to Bjørke is approx. 500 meters. Gravel road (toll road) without markings for 1.5 km to Åsvodl where the road flattens. The sign there points to T markings first on the forest road for 300 meters and then the path up the hill to the top from the last turn of the forest road.

The large cairn at Navarhaug was erected for Rosendal Turnlag’s 100th anniversary in 2001. From here, there is a 360 degree view to mountains and valleys, oceans and fjord landscapes and the third longest fjord in the world, the Hardanger Fjord.
