Access to starting point:
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.
When we step on an ample mountain pasture we leave the marked path, which leads on Krn and we continue the ascent entirely on the left side of the mountain pasture (by the foot of Veliki Šmohor, which is on our left). At the spot, where we will notice a cairn and beginning with a grass vegetated old military mule track we leave edge of the mountain pasture and we continue left upwards on the mentioned mule track. Overgrown mule track, which is at first ascending on gentle slopes quickly brings us on steeper terrain, where on some spots it is already entirely ruined and overgrown. Increasingly panoramic path higher brings us to the spot, where we cross steep gully. Because the mule track on this spot is entirely ruined the passage in distance of three meters is a little harder passable, but we get help from good steps and a smaller steel cable. Steepness then gradually decreases and path brings us into a smaller valley between Veliki Šmohor on the left and Vrh nad Peski right.
Here we can on pathless terrain ascend direct to the summit of Veliki Šmohor or we continue left on scenic and panoramic path, which on the left side bypasses the peak of Veliki Šmohor. If we decided for a little longer left variant we continue on mule track, which after a short ascent descends for few meters on the left (western) side of Šmohor. Path ahead crosses mentioned slopes and on the other side of Veliki Šmohor ascends on a small indistinct saddle between Mali and already mentioned Šmohor. For the ascent on Veliki Šmohor we continue right on a poorly visible footpath, which on the upper slope in 15 minutes of panoramic ascent brings us on the mentioned peak.
PS: We can descend on Mali Šmohor and then on a marked path back into a valley.
