Forest hike on Knaplundsøya

This hike starts by the Saltstraumen church and follows a road into the forest on Knaplundsøya. After a while, you turn off on a smaller path that leads up to a pond, then further up on a ridge where you get a nice view in all directions. The distance from the start point to the endpoint is around 2.90 kilometers, which takes about 40 minutes with a calm hiking speed. The pond makes a nice endpoint too, if you want to shorten down the route and to avoid the final climb
