Out-and-back from Eikeskog parking
Available year-round, but conditions are best April to September
The trail is well marked and easy to follow, but depending on weather, the rocks may become slippery in some of the more demanding areas. The initial part of the hike from Eikeskog to the first lookout point is steep but well enforced with stairs and railings. Some hiking experience is desirable, but not mandatory.

Hikers should be prepared with clothes and shoes for rainy weather. Hiking boots are strongly encouraged, or approach shoes, at the very least. Other suggestions include warm, windproof and waterproof clothing.
Have some water with you to keep hydrated, preferably in a container we can refill on the trail. Norwegian mountains are full of crystal clear, clean and very tasty water sources. Lunch will not be provided, but we suggest that you bring your own snack.
Last but not least, each hiker is responsible for carrying his/her own gear, so a suitable backpack is recommended.

From Stavanger to the Eikeskog/Månafossen parking it is about an hour’s drive, depending on traffic. After a 30-minute hike we will arrive to the waterfall lookout point where we will enjoy the view of the rapid waters and find a good spot to take photos. We will thereafter continue for another 30 minutes up to the Mån mountain farm. There, we will enjoy the idyllic landscape, our packed lunch and learn about the history of the place. The hike back will likely also take no more than 1 hour, and we expect to arrive back in Stavanger around 01:00 PM.
