Gravel road up through the subdivision to a path up the hill via Ådnaklett and Storhaug.
From Storhaug towards Mannsvatnet Lake, you can see the characteristic moraine ridges. Leave the path to Mannsvatnet Lake by the sign for Solfjell. The last part of the hike has a steep incline. There is a beautiful panorama view from the top.
