Lifjell by vehicle track

Lifjell is the hill with TV antenna on top just across the fjord from Stavanger, with fantastic views across the town and the hills and fjords to the mountains. The access road up to the TV and radar equipment is the easiest way up, with good views along the way to Hommersak and the Ryfylke islands and mountains, then fantastic views across Stavanger from the top.

looking down on boats with Stavanger beyond The access road is a rough track that goes all the way up to the TV antenna - easy walking but would be very hard in places with a pram or pushchair. It is just a short scramble from there across to the cairn and the best views across the fjord.
From Riska, walk along the Li road to the first big bend down and to the right. There are two tracks on the left here - take the second one, past hyttes and farms up to the top. About 3 km each way.
From the top you can go down on the north side to Bymarken, or south to Dale or Dalsnuten. Back at the car, you could visit the harbour or park at Hommersak.
