Mt. Staðartunguháls

A rather easy walk.
Cars can be parked beside the gravel road leading up to the woodland Miðhálsaskógur in Öxnadalur.
Head up from the parking to above the forestry area, you need to cross a fence that's close to the road. When arriving above the forestry follow the fence surrounding the woodland and continu upwards along the mountain ridge, all the way to the top of the mountain.

One can make the tour longer by continuing further along the mountain and even all the way to Hraun in Öxnadalur.
