The view from the top is one of the most beautiful things this world has to offer. The 45° incline looks more intimidating than it is, but you do have to tread cautiously. Take your time, have a rest here and there, and you'll get safely up and down with one heck of an experience.
Amazing views to be had at this iconic peak. The hike is short, but quite steep, and having some good shoes will help. You go back the way you came up (it is not possible to go down any other way without a belay rope). The parking lot is easy to find, and the path is fairly easy to follow. At a brisk walking pace we used 2.5 hours. There are other hikes near by, if you want to take a picture of Segla itself, Hesten is a good spot for it (further out from Segla).
