A fine day trip, about 1.5 – 2 hours up to the summit – 446 mas. Start at Fv 691, about 500 m west of the Ytterstad Farm (signposted on the road).
From the car park alongside the national road, the marked trail runs through forested area, underbrush and rocky scree up to the first hilltop, Nattmålsteinen. From here it continues northeast, past Småvatnene and up to the summit. From Ytterstadtinden there is a marvellous view toward Narvik in the east, Stetinden in the southeast, Hamarøya in the south and Lofoten in the west. Below the mountain, the settlements of Hesten, Rinøy, Ytterstad, Kjeøy and Offersøy glisten like precious gems in Vestbygda. The guest book is placed under the cairn at the summit.
Length: about 3.5 km, somewhat challenging.
Small caims mark the trails from the treeline to the summit.
