Drive south from the railroad intersection in the center of Malmbäck (southwest of Nässjö). There is a sign to Tomtabacken. Pass the road to Hok after 1 km and the village of Estenstorp after 7.3 km. Park in the Tomtabacken parking area in St. Åkerhult, 9.2 km from Malmbäck.
Hike east from the parking and follow a spur trail to the summit. There is a watch tower and several antennas on the summit. There should be a triangle marker on the summit. It may be hidden by the concrete fundation below the tower.
The hiking trail that passes Tomtabacken is called Höglandsleden (the Highland Trail).
