Hiking route to Steigtindvatnet

This hike starts at a parking lot right next to a small lake on the road towards Kjerringøy outside Bodø city. First you walk through some forest before you get to a rocky and open landscape, continue down towards the lake by aiming at the mountain Steigtind. The endpoint is by the shore on the other side of a bridge, resulting in a distance of about 1.71 kilometers from the parking lot. The hike takes about 30 minutes each way and you get a nice view towards Steigtind mountain and the Mjelle mountains along the way. There are barely any paths to follow here, but you will have no problems finding the endpoint anyways. You can also track your location according to the hike route on the map further down, if you activate GPS. Mice little hike if you want to stretch your legs
