Steady ascend. Fun hike with all rock and sand. Very windy at the top. Bring a jacket.

"moderate" in Icelandic has a different meaning than in the U.S. Still a class 4 trail, but I had a few moments thinking " this CANT be the right path". I'm glad I had the all trails app on record, so that I could be sure. All that said, this was one of the most beautiful and rewarding hikes I've done. If this is what Valhalla looks like, I'm ready.

Spectacular views from the top. Note to first timers: most other sources of information can mislead you and point towards other places called Helgafell in Iceland or even to the lower formation next to Helgafell; stick to the route here and look for the highest peak of the two.

Good for a quick jaunt up a mountain. Flat and easy for the first 0.9 miles before the moderate section straight to the top. If you take the right fork on the way down, it is more moderate but sandy and loose with gravel so watch your step.
