Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go on the exit Lipce, where we turn left in the direction of "Blejska Dobrava and Spodnje Gorje". Soon, when we drive in railway underpass we are at the next crossroad, where we drive in the direction of right - Bled, Kočna. At first zig zag road ascends straight towards the west and soon in the left turn reaches top or settlement Kočna. Towards the end of the settlement, when the road is descending a little, on the left we notice guesthouse, and on the right a larger parking lot - our starting point.
Path description:
On side of the road where we've parked, we step on a cart track, which leads towards the forest. Already after few meters we are at little larger stone, on which is situated memorial plaque and first trail blaze with the caption Obranca, which pointing straight (west) in the forest. Path, which starts ascending, in the forest turns at first a little left and soon after this back in same direction, straight, steep upwards. At the first crossing we choose right, where steepness even more increases. At the second, more indistinct crossing, blazes again point us to the right into steep slope, where the path in short turns left and soon again straight or uphill, to a tree with a blaze, where eventually vanishes a little. Path here supposed to turn to the right, but because of overgrowth and fallen trees we choose steep direction straight, where we soon again run into our path - to the left. Steepness for a short time a little decreases, signs take us to a large amount of fallen trees. Because we can't continue by following the blazes, few meters before the mentioned hovel we go right into steep slope, on already a little beaten bypass. When we again run into signs, they point us left, diagonally towards the valley or wide gully, which we cross. From here further we are again ascending on steeper slope, and the path is going more and more to the right towards top of steep, with trees less vegetated valley, on middle of which we ascend to fence on the edge of the mountain pasture Obranca. We continue either uphill on the left, where there is viewpoint, or west past a monument over pastures, to shepherd cottage.
