From Rt 72 at the Inn in central Heby, drive North towards Heby Center. Pass the railroad after about 0.7 km and turn right to Huddunge. Turn right again after 3.1 km, to Molnebo (3.8 km from Rt 72) and in Molnebo, another right to Östfora (6.6 km). Pass the border to Uppsala County 15.3 km from Rt 72 in Heby. The road noow follows lake Tarmlången. Turn right on a gravel road to Asplund at 17.3 km. Drive about 1 km to a four way intersection (18.4 km). Park off the road.
Follow N Sörviksvägen west to a three way intersection. Take the left road and continue about about 100 m to a sign "Upplandsberget", to the right of the road. Follow the trail from the sign about 300 m to the summit. There is a sign on the summit that IF Thor in Uppsala placed there in 1999.

The name Upplandsberget is missing on the topo map and may be a new invention. The area in the map is marked Tallmossen.

This highpoint is a nice place for a short summer trip. Along the road and more along the trail is plenty of blueberries and lingonberries. Don't forget a bag or a basket to store the berries. The highpoint of Uppsala county is nearby and give the possiblity to a nice double the very same day.
