The main trail/road used for walking and getting up to start of the trails or all the way to the top.
It's a service road the ski resort uses to manage the facilities in the area during the summer and is the best way to go up if you choose not to walk the trail itself.
Closed to vehicle traffic over the weekends when the chairlift is in operation.
Can be driven up between July and September/October on a 4x4 jeep with good traction. Not for amateur drivers.

Access Info

Just drive up the main Hlíðarfjall mountain road almost all the way to the ski resort. You can't miss it.
