Skumhottur

Skúmhöttur the second tallest mountain in the range between Fljótsdalshérað and Reyðarfjörður. It consists mostly of rhyolite but the peak itself is of a darker rock formation. Drive the main road (no 1) until you pass Litla Sandfell farm. Make a left turn and go through the gate and continue until you come to an old bridge by Þórisá river. There is a parking area. Walk from the sign by Þórisá river and along the ridge until you are on the top, 1229 m.

A good walk and an interesting mountain.
