The path follows the red DNT marking towards Ustetind in the direction of Ustaoset. The path has a gentle incline initially and becomes steep just before Ustetind, but cycleable. From Ustetind follow the marked path towards Tuftebrui. The path is a floating path downwards and crosses a stream before another tough climb. After the top of this the path splits, it is important here NOT to follow the marked path towards Turftebrui as this is impassable, take the path to the right and follow the fantastic floating path down towards the Røde Kors hut (Grønebakkene). From here follow the marked path in the direction of Hakkeset in the ridges to the right of the cross-country trail. At the crossroads just before Birgthovda, turn left and follow this to Tuftebrui. Very steep descent from the mountain and sometimes relatively technical. Then follow the dirt road to the center of Geilo or Vestlia.


Drive toll road towards Tuva and up onto the plateau before driving down towards Tuva. There are two options for the path towards Ustetind, we have used the path that is closest to Tuva, approximately in the middle of the large lake on the west before Tuva (Holværvatnet).
