The farm Bergatn is now a National War Memorial.
Drive on E16 to the trail head after the first turn of the road north of Bagn centre (if driving north). Exit to the right and park to the right a few meters after the turn from the main road, few and poor places. The path is signed and leads through the Second World War battlefield “Gråbeinhølet”. Information about the battle is signposted along the path.
Instead of returning the same way, you can continue on the gravel road from the museum and follow the signposted track to the right towards Dalen (keep straight here) and Gubberud and then downhill to the new settlement area Sprangerud (ending up at the right turn around, seen from below, to the left of the ski jump) or you descend right from beneath Bergatn on a steep path to the left turn around at Sprangerud (seen from below). Both alternatives are more difficult to find from the bottom and up.
