Access to starting point:
A) In Croatia we get over the border crossing Gruškovje / Macelj. We leave the highway Macelj-Zagreb at town Zabok. Further, we drive in the direction of Bedekovčina, Zlatar Bistrica. After the settlement Poznanovec we leave the main road and we go in the direction of Mače, Zlatar (in Zlatar it is possible to come even if we continue ahead and we turn in town Zlatar-Bistrica). In settlement Zlatar we will notice signs for Belec, to which there is about fifteen more minutes on a worse road.
B) From Prekmurje we drive on the highway Goričan-Zagreb, and we leave it at exit Novi Marof. From Novi Marof we continue in the direction of Zlatar, but only to a town Budinščina, where we will go on a worse road, which after twenty minutes brings us to village Belec.
The official beginning of the path is by the church in Belec, but from here to "our" starting point in the village Juranščina, there is half an hour of walking on an asphalt.
Path description:
The official beginning of the path is by the church in the village Belec. I recommend that we drive ahead in the village Juranščina, because to there, it is half an hour of walking on the asphalt and flat.
In Juranščina there is a crossing, where we will notice mountain signposts. We go left in the direction of Belecgrad (right - Kopanja and Židovina). The asphalt will soon end, and the path passes into the forest (here there are few parking spots).
Through the forest, we walk on a mostly gentle path, and between the trees, the view opens up a little on ruins of castle Belecgrad, and on the left side of the and the path, runs a pleasant stream Brana, which is flowing towards the valley in numerous rapids. After a half an hour of walking, we get to the mountain hut Belecgrad.
Behind the hut, there is a bigger crossing from which we continue left (straight - Brana, right - Kopanja over Mindžalovec). We cross the stream Brana. Here we can choose between two variants, I recommend the left because the right one goes through a clearing and doesn't have blazes, there is only one on rock. The paths join at the hunting cottage, from where we continue to the next crossing, which is located before the castle Belec, which is now a rubble.
From the crossing, we continue slightly right (behind us is a turn-off towards the ruins, left is a path for mountain hut Majer and ruins Oštrcgrad). The path ahead is increasingly steep and leads through a lower forest. After some time the path quite unnoticeably from northwestern turns on northeastern side and flattens. The gentle part lasts only a minute, and then we get to the most steep part of the path, where on some spots the path is quite rocky and almost borders to a partly demanding. Higher, the path again flattens and it brings us to a crossing, where if we continue left, we can in a minute get to a viewpoint Babin zob.
After the crossing which is somehow at the half way to the top, we get to a lane of mixed forest, where by interesting rock, the path again becomes steeper. The forest gradually gets thinner, and we get to a meadow Beliga. Once an active mountain pasture, today it is abandoned and more and more overgrown. We follow the meadow to the right, and when we return in the forest, we are already at the next crossing, which is poorly marked and where from the right side the path from Lobor and mountain hut Majer joins.
Next follows some of easy walking through the forest and then we get to a saddle, from where a view opens up towards the north. We have two options to continue, namely we can continue downwards, where we walk below the rocks, I recommend the path which leads over the peak Belige.
We go upwards on the steep path which continues on in parts narrow and on some spots exposed ridge and we follow such a path to the top of Belige, where an inscription box is situated.
We continue forward and after a minute, the ridge ends, and we descend approximately 100 altitude meters to a crossing, where our path officially ends and passes on the path Brana.
We continue right and we get to the road, on which we can continue all the way to the mountain hut, I recommend that from the road we slightly descend and in a minute we get to Črne mlake, a legendary airfield of witches.
Črne mlake is a smaller muddy lake, which never dries up.
We continue in the direction of the peak, and the path leads us towards the east, and we soon get to the next spot for a rest and to the next crossing, where few more paths join. A little further we get to a poorly marked crossing, where we go upwards.
A little higher we touch the road, and we go left on a marked path. Next follows a shorter ascent and we again reach the road, this time we continue there to approximately 5 minutes distant mountain hut, from which to the top of Ivanščica we have only a minute of walking.
