This hike starts at the parking lot at the highest point of the road Vatnveien. Just after a steep climb on the road after the end of the lake on the left side of the road, you will get the parking lot on your right side. Here the hike down to the upper parts of Vatnvatnet starts, take the trail behind the sign and follow it until the terrain is easy enough for you to get up to the ridge. Once you are on the top of the ridge, follow it down towards the lake and eventually you will come to a small path that leads down into a little valley. This path goes to the endpoint wich is a small bay by the lake. The distance from the parking lot to the endpoint is 1.57 kilometres wich takes about 30 minutes with calm hiking speed. This is not a very long hike, but going up and down on the rocky landscape gives your feet some decent exercise
