Drive Rt 70 to Idre and continue about 38 km to Grövelsjön. At the Sjöstugan intersection, just before the Mountain Lodge, turn right to a gravel road. Drive about 300 m uphill to a gravel parking on the left and park. There is a trailhead at the parking.
The trail starts out as gravel but changes to a normal rocky mountain trail after a while. Follow the blazed trail for about 9 km over a hill, across a bridge and up to the summit. The summit is located on the northeastern side of the little lake, on top of the mountain.
