Digergubben (527 masl) is one of the popular stone stairs in Midsund! Sherpas from Nebal have been working on this stone stairs, and this work is worth the trip alone.
And of course a fantastic view to mountains, fjord and ocean.
Steep terrain, but with the stairs this hike makes it possible for many to do this trip. The stairs goes to Mount DIgergubben (527 masl). The stairs are a bit high now and then. Several places you will also find nice places to sit down on stone benches. From "Kumlokket" towards the Midsundvatnet lake, the path also has some steep sections. Some gravel stone in this part of the trip as well. About 100 meters from the Midsund lake, the path devides, continue to the left (to the right direction Midsundhornet). A small stone bridge is crossing a stream, and the the stairs continues towards Digergubben. The landscape flattens a bit before the last part with some steeper parts again the last 400 meters.
Parking ny the signs/starting point, and also a sign indicating alternative parking areas in the nearby area.
