The route starts at the cable car mount at Sagi. The cable car was used to transport goods up to the plateau above the waterfall. From here the path goes along the old routes towards the mountain farms at Tennfossen. The cable car mount at the plateau is a good place for a stop for a rest and enjoy the view over the fjord. At Tennfossen there were three farms, the last was abandoned in 1970. The watercourse in the valley is protected and the whole valley is free of any technical interventions giving unique views of the many waterfalls.
The path flattens as it arrives in Stordalen and the river winds like a serpent through the valley.
The path crosses the watercourse on a bridge to Tenndalsstølen, a summer farm owned by the Lindane and Sæle farms. The route follows the east side of the Stordalen valley. At the end you have to wade over the river and follow the trail through the birch woods up to Hesjedalen and the mountain farm there. Here route 3 meets route 2 coming up from Nessadalen.
Hesjedalsvatnet lake has a good trout population and is well suited for rod fishing. You can fish here with a rod without a license.
