If you'll have a nice, sunny day in Stavanger and you want to have an half day trip, Dalsnuten may be a good option.
You have a lot of ways to go there, by car until Gramstad or by bus from Stavanger to Sandnes (no. 2 or 3) and from Sandnes no. 18 to Dale or Gramstad.
From any of those places you'll find nice tracks to the top of the hill. Even if this is only a hill (323m), the view over the Gandafjorden is most probably the best you’ll get.
I know that this is not Geiranger or Lysefjorden but the view over the entire Stavanger-Sandnes area, or South to Klepp, or far to the open sea (50-60 km in a good day) to the West is unique.
When you go up, take with you a small stone and put it on the top of the pile once you’ll be up-there. And don’t forget to put your name on the notebook in the green box, together with a good thought for the others.
This hill forms the ridge running alongside the Gandsfjorden across from Stavanger and Sandnes and is entirely suitable for an afternoons stroll with breath-taking views as the top of the hill is crested.
Drive through Sandnes following the signs for Sand and then Dale. When you enter Dale take a right turn (signposted Gramstad and Dalsnuten) up a small twisty road (aren't they all!) to the Car park at Gramstad.
The path is well signposted and obvious.
