There are several waymarked trails to the DNT cabin at Nipebu. The route from Rivedal through the Vagstaddalen valley is one of the shortest, and easy on foot or skis.
There is a car park by the power station on the west side of the Rivedalselva river. Follow the construction road up to the intake dam at the top of Trongane. Cross the river at the dam and follow the trail eastwards through the Vagstaddalen valley to Atlevatnet lake. Continue over the bridge and on the north side of the lake, where bridges have also been built around the promontory and over the river. A little way before Vårdalstølen mountain farm, the trail heads uphill to the east. Continue up to the hill facing Langevatnet lake and on to the trail from Stongfjorden to Nipebu.
