Nonetheless, the mountain pass only sees a few hikers every year – visitors to the national park who have chosen the route Tosbotn–Strompdal or Titingsdalen–Breivatna–Lomsdalen.

The Norwegian name Lappskardet indicates that Sámi herders and their reindeer frequently used the mountain pass. In fact, there is a sacrificial site near Øvre Lappskardvatnet, the upper lake, a large stone split into several parts.

Boulder fields and rocky terrain make it difficult to see the paths through the pass, but if you take the time and look carefully you will see small cairns to guide you. Fortunately the terrain is relatively easy, even though the trail is twisted.
