 Start of route to Ulvestadsætra, Grødet and Otrefjellet.
  The path that short-cuts the route along the forest road.


From the two-level junction at Digerneset, on roads E39 and E136), drive 8.7 km to the T-junction at Eidet (Tennfjord). Turn right and start measuring from here:

- Drive 2.2 km to Vatne centre. Don't turn left onto road 661 but continue another 220 metres slightly uphill.

- Turn left onto the road Ulvestadvegen and then turn right onto Trøavegen after 520 metres.

- Drive Trøavegen 215 metres and turn left onto Gjerdet.

- Drive 610 metres along Gjerdet and park at the top of the road, just before a gate.

Start your hike by following the gravel road 1.1 km up to a left bend at 260m. Continue straight ahead on a path and re-join the gravel road at 280m. Turn right and continue a few tens of metres to where the gravel road gets considerably rougher. Follow this rougher gravel road 800 metres up to 375m, and turn right onto a path. Follow this path all the way to the summit, where you will find a summit registration book.

Descend by reversing your ascent route.

Relatively easy run in miserable conditions.
