The easiest way to get to the Tiveden National Park is from the south, from highway 49 between Karlsborg and Askersund.
From there the route to Tiveden National Park is signposted. A smaller road runs past Stenkällegården before it reaches the boundary of the national park. The road then continues north through the national park, past the Main entrance and up to the public road between Askersund and Tived.
The national park can also be reached by following signs from Askersund in the north-east and from E20 by Finnerödja and Laxå in the north-west.
By the Main entrance in the middle of the national park, there is parking as well as information, WCs and an exhibit. Most of the national park’s hiking trails start here. There is also a car park in the north-western part of the park next to Vitsand by Lake Trehörningen.
