Between Trenta and Bovec in the village Soča a road in Lepena branches off. This asphalt road we follow to a parking lot at mountain hut Dom v Lepeni.
Path description:
From Dr. Klement Jug House in Lepena we continue on a wide marked path in direction of Krn lakes. After few minutes of walking wide and not too steep path splits to two parts. The left one which is a bit steeper is a normal way and right one less steep and longer is suitable for small children and the elderly. Paths cross each other few times and are mostly ascending through the forest untill we get to the upper station of the cargo cableway. From the upper station of the cargo cableway we continue on the same path that is gently ascending on the wide transport road that quickly brings us to the measurements of the snow (every year in april). From here the road starts to descend, leads us pass the turn off to Velika Baba and it quickly brings us to the next crossing where we leave the road and continue down left on the footpath that in few minutes brings us to mountain hut Dom pri Krnskih jezerih (if we would continue on the road, we avoid the mountain hut).
From the mountain hut we continue straight in direction of Krn and Krn lake on gentle path that soon joins the path that avoids the mountain hut. We continue past the shepherd hut, behind which we get to the next crossing, where we again continue in direction of Krn (left Bogatin, Mali Šmohor and Dom na Komni..
After next few minutes a gentle path brings us to the pearl of the Krn mountains. In front of us we see Krn lake and inviting meadows by the lake for a rest. Marked path then leads us on the left side of the lake by the base of the scree of Mali Šmohor. On the other side of the lake the path turns a little to the left and starts ascending on a bit steeper slope, on which higher unmarked (upper) path joins us. Upper path in ascending crosses the scree above Krn lake (this path is a little shorter but exposed to falling stones) . Path then turns a little to the right and it brings us to extensive deposits of torrential gravel.
With wonderful views of nearby peaks we cross a grassy meadow Planina na Polju (on the right side, little away from the marked path we will notice a hunting cottage) and behind it we start ascending through a small valley. Path then ascends a bit steeper and soon brings us to partly marked crossing. Marked path that leads towards Krnska škrbina here turns right (straight unmarked path towards the saddle Prag 2068m) and it starts ascending steeper. Path then passes to steep slopes, on which we in ascending traverse reach the saddle Krnska škrbina (on this part in early summer snow is possible).
From the notch we continue right (sharp left Prag, left Batognica and straight mountain pasture Planina Kuhinja) on path that starts ascending on a grassy slope of the mountain. We follow this scenic path to the top which we reach after approximately 30 minutes of walking from Krnska škrbina.
From the top we can descend to mountain hut Gomiškovo zavetišče in 5 minutes.
