This hike starts at Skaug which lies a 30 minutes drive from Bodø city and goes up to a small mountain called Skautuva. The start point of this mountain trip is a bit below Skaug Grendehus, from the parking area you follow a path through the forest up to Skaugskaret, this part got a steep climb, but once you are there you have passed the forest line and the hike continue in an open rocky landscape.

The top of Skautuva is 626 meters above the sea level and the distance up is a bit over 4 km, which takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes with calm hiking speed and a couple of small breaks here and there along the way to catch the breath. The hardest part of the route is the climb through the forest by the start
