When the water flow is high, the stream in Murabotnen can be difficult to cross. There is an incline above the stream. An alternative return can be the path via Malmangernuten and directly down to Rosendal, see the routes Malmangernuten from Hattebergsdalen and Malmangernuten from Rosendal.
From the parking lot at Fossberg, it is 2 km along the gravel road (toll road) to the bottom of the valley. The path goes up the Murabotnen and to the left at the fork; to the right is the path to Malmangernuten.
Past the old walls at Kuhammarstølen mountain farm, you will eventually come to a sign towards the view point of the Bjørndal area and the sources of the Hatteberg waterway. These are central areas in Folgefonna National Park.
There is a beautiful panorama view from the cairn at Skeisfjell, where you can see Ulvanosa, Blådalshorga and Bjørndalstindane.
