Mountain hike to Steigtind

This hike goes to Steigtind mountain in Bodø. The highest point at Steigtind is 793 meters above sea level, from here you get a nice view in all directions. From the parking lot below Skaug Grendehus, follow a path in the forest until you come to a dirt road, follow the dirt road up to the water tower and continue on the forest path. Now you have a pretty steep climb in front of you until you reach the first top at Skaugskaret. Turn left and continue along the rocky landscape until you get to the base of the mountain where a new steep climb awaits, but it's not as hard as the first one through the forest. Zigzag your way to the top and enjoy the nice view. The distance from the start point to the top is around 5.8 km which takes about 2 hours and 45 min with some breaks here and there
