There are many paths to the top, and the most common starting points for trips are from  Lensmannsseter, Veimyra at Kikut and Solvika at Heivannet in Siljan. Most of the trails are on the south and west sides of the area. The area has two peaks, Østre Vealøs, 446 meters above sea level, and Vestre Vealøs which is 500 meters above sea level.
