To reach the DNT cabin at Nipebu, turn off county road fv 609 at the sign for Skjerli, between Flokenes and Gjelsvik, and continue to Markavatnet lake. There is parking by the power station at the end of the lake.
The trail begins on a construction road immediately south of the lake. It is a good standard of trail but there is some marshy ground and then some scree up towards Krokavatnet lake. The trail heads uphill in a south-easterly direction to Nipevatnet lake and up into the pass on the west side of Fossedalshengenipa. After the pass, the trail heads south-west on a plateau alongside Langevatnet lake to Nipebu.
