Starting from the parking lot at the main path of Kjarnaskógur, the forest south of Akureyri, you'll follow the trail of Hvammskógur which will become very steep and when you have reached the little black cabin, enjoyed the view, you'll go down the old trail of Fálkafell.
Before heading downhill from Fálkafell, you'll see the white cabin of Fálkafell, on those crossroads follow the off-road bike trail which will lead to the parking lot at the end of Súluvegur ("Súluplan").
