Directions (Feplassen and Lenningen):
From Fagernes, follow the road towards N. Etnedal, and continue in the direction of Lillehammer to Feplassen. Parking pockets along the road for 4–5 cars. Approx. 150 m back south along the road the marked trail starts and leads via the high point 1197 m.a.s.l. (view) to the top.
Instead of starting at Feplassen, you also can drive approx. 3 km further towards Lenningen (GPS parking 32v 537913 6774656) and hike along the DNT-Route towards Hugulia which leads over the summit of Spåtind. It is marked with red T's.
Alternatively, from Etnedal by Flatøydegard, continue towards Lillehammer to Rust, and turn right towards Bakkebygda and Gamlestølen. From Gamlestølen there is a toll road (NOK 30 in 2014). Drive to Fjellsætri where there’s a parking area. Follow a marked trail which is clear and easy to find.
