“Great Views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

The hike up to Dalsnuten has many different routes, making it possible for almost anyone to find their way to the top. It is best done during drier periods, as most of the flat hiking is done through bogs. The views at the top are breathtakingly beautiful. On good days, you can see the entire peninsula and much of Ryfylket to the north.
The only negative is that it is often quite windy at the top, which makes for a cold rest. Even on warmer days, it's smart to take some extra layers along :)

“Dalsnuten”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We climbed Dalsnuten which overlooks Sandnes and Stavanger. We took the left path up, which is easy on the legs until the last "leg." Then it is a rather steep climb to get to the very top. The view is very lovely, overlooking both cities. We went down the other route, which starts out steeply through rocks, and ends up walking through some woods. I didn't rate it five stars because the route has changed somewhat from in the past. It is definitely easier, and the paths are very well marked. When you go through the trees now, they have an area set up where you can picnic. Overall I would definitely recommend it for all ages.

“Trip to Dalsnuten”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Dalsnuten is a well known mountain just outside Sandnes. It takes a couple of hours to reach the top, but you will be well paid with a fantastic view over Staavanger and Sandnes. The last walk is quite steep and can be a challenge. Good shoes is a must. Close to the mountain there are a beautiful lake, a ferfect Place for a break before you start the walk/Climb to Dalsnuten.

“great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Nice place to go when the weather is fine.
Very populair place for the locals who come here in the weekend with the children so they can learn to hike and climb on the rocks.
The view from the top of Dalsnutten over Sandnes and in the distance Stavanger is great. Don't forget to wright in the guestbook that is on top of the mountain, in a box.
If you don't like to climb up, walk around the lake and enjoy the nature.
There is also a track (less people) in te corner on the backside of the parking area....
