Tilremshatten is a low, long mountain ridge, connecting to the Mosfjellet massif, just northeast of Brønnøysund.

The top is very popular, and frequently found on the on the list of Fjelltrimmen tops in Brønnøy and Sømna kommuner.

Along this ridge, you pass a huge, impressive hole through the ridge. A fence has been put up to avoid accidents. Near the Tilremshatten trailhead at Skarsåsen, you'll find reminiscents from World War II. Follow the Krigsminne signs.

The route

(names marked with ØK are derived from the Økonomisk Kartverk map)

Follow the road until you reach a fenced-in area. Locate the path that begind to the right of the fence. Cross a small ridge (Flata, ØK), then move (to the right) over to the main ridge (Stor-Skardsåsen, ØK). Next stop is Havlarstuva (180m), where you see the giant hole through the ridge. Proceed up Kløvningan (ØK), cross a small meadow (280m) before you rise up to the summit cairn at point 315m. You may (or may not) find a visitor register inside a container in the cairn.

Point 316m (the high point) is found 100m to the north. Very few seem to visit this point. There is no signs of a path, but the terrain is easy, and the distance is short.

The trail is in many sections very muddy.
