    Get there as soon as the parking lot opens if you want to avoid a pointless extra 30-45 minutes of climbing. I've done this one twice now, and it's spectacular. Make sure to bring plenty of food and water, and PICK UP YOUR TRASH. This place can be very crowded on weekends or in the summer, and a lot of the people leave litter. It ruins the magic a little. But nothing can detract from the image of the Troll's Tongue. It's unparalleled! Wait your turn in line and do your best pose for your next profile picture. Expect this one to take all day. Due to Norway's generous camping laws, you can set up a tent at the end of the trail and wake up in the morning for some fantastic views.

    Strenuous hike with one of the most fantastic payoffs at the top. It ascends about 1500 feet over about half a mile, so it's steep! The locals will tell you the trail is closed while they are working on a set of stairs to make the climb a little safer, but you can still do the hike without them. The initial part is through some trees and over some slippery rocks. I did this hike after a few days of rain, and it wasn't easy initially! Lot's of mud and wet rocks. Boots are very much recommended, but that being said, my friend (who is not experienced at hiking) had his luggage lost and had to climb this in my Nike sneakers. Tough, but by no means impossible.

    After you get out of the trees, it gets very steep. Be sure to watch for loose rocks that can trip you up and then be sent down the mountain. Please be vocal if you knock some loose! I almost got clocked by tumbling rocks because the cllimbers ahead of us didn't say anything.

    We made it to the top after about an hour, and were rewarded with one of the best views I've ever seen. If you split off to the right, you go do a bit of a climb and end up about 50 feet higher. There is a path off to the left which also provides spectacular views. Be aware that if you are afraid of heights, this is a lot! But don't let it stop you. It's worth it.

    Nice quick hike with great sunset views, and good looks at Bear Mountain and its bridge. It also has a nice memorial up at the top to POWs and fallen soldiers. I recommend climbing up the western path, as it is much steeper and harder to descend. The trail is longer and less steep on the east side. It should take 15-25 minutes for someone in decent shape to get the top. A great, easy go to!
