Overview
From the parking lot 100 meters on a forest road to a small hilltop where the path turns left. The path reaches the top from the northeast. From Håfjellet, an alternative return can be down towards the east to the parking lot, first on the path and then on the forest road. Follow the markings towards Tjoberghaugen to a fork under a rock face and along the rock face towards the left to the forest road. From the intersection between the forest road and the road to Sjøvangen, it is 200 meters north along the main road to the parking lot.

The long route via Tjobergshaugen goes southwest from the fork under the rock face. The incline to Tjobergshaugen from the east is rather steep. Return on the same path to the fork under the rock face. Turn right along the rock face to the forest road. From where the forest road meets the main road, it is approx. 200 meters north to the parking lot.
