See under "Overview" regarding an alternative way down. Overview Follow the main forest road for 500 meters from the community hall on an incline up the hill until the road flattens by the forest road intersection. Turn left by the sign to Brakhaug and follow the forest road for 200 meters until you reach a bridge. On the other side of the bridge, the path to Brakhaug turns right from the forest road. There are tables and benches and a view of the town and Onarheimsfjorden at Brakhaug. The path to Ørnnipen turns into a forest road that you follow for 500 meters until you reach the path that goes slightly down and then up to Ørnnipen. Here you will find tables and benches, a view of Rosendal, Tysnes and the Stord mountains. An alternative to the return may be the route that comes down to Bringedalsbygda 500 meters north of the parking lot by the community hall. The path eventually turns into a steep forest road. Turn right 30 meters before the stream, climb over the fence and go down to the road.
