Access to starting point:
First, we drive to Kranjska Gora, we then follow the signs for ski slope Kranjska Gora. We park on a large parking lot by the foot of Kranjska Gora ski slopes.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we continue in the direction of Ciprnik, at first on metal stairs and past a stand, where they sell tickets. On stand we notice also signs for Bedančev dom, to which we have 45 minutes of ascent. Next follows one more ascent on metal stairs, and then we get to the bottom station of four-seater chairlift Vitranc I, and we continue a little right from cableway, on a macadam road which starts ascending by the ski slope (in the summer time sledding ground Besna Pehta). Further, we are ascending on the mentioned road, and higher we can leave it for some time because slightly to the left, by summer sledding ground continues the cart track which higher returns on the road. When we return on the road we have a good 10 minutes of careful walking (careful because of cyclists on the path) and we already get to the upper station of four-seater chairlift Vitranc I and few 10 strides ahead also to Bedančev dom.
Little above Bedančev dom we notice the next yellow tourist signs, and we follow them in the direction of Vitranc and Ciprnik, so still on the road. Further, the road in some turns ascends, and then it brings us to part of Kranjska Gora ski slopes above Podkoren, where we ascend left from the upper station of four-seater chairlift Podkoren. Above the mentioned station of four-seater chairlift ski slopes ends, and the path is then for some time ascending by the former ski slope, which run from Vitranc (ski slope was never groomed, because it was too steep for snow groomer. Because there was a lot of accidents also with fatal outcome they closed the ski slope, cableway was still working, but it was forbidden to go there with skis), and then passes into the forest, through which it starts ascending steeply. On some slippery spots further we get help from a rope, and higher we once again cross already quite overgrown former ski track, and then we ascend through a lane of a forest on the ridge of Vitranc, where we continue left to few 10 strides distant mountain hut Mojčin dom.
From the mountain hut Mojčin dom, near of which there is also decaying mountain hut Dom na Vitrancu, we return few 10 strides back to a crossing, from where we continue in the direction of Ciprnik, where the path leads also past decaying one-seater chairlift Vitranc II.
(One seater chairlift Vitranc II is the oldest one-seater chairlift in Slovenia and one of the oldest in the world because it is from a year 1958. Few years back it was still safe to go with it to Vitranc, but today it doesn't have an operating permit anymore).
The path continues on the ridge of Vitranc with some shorter ascents and descents, and then we get to the spot, where from the right joins also the path from Planica.
We continue straight on a gradually more and more steep path, which higher out of the forest brings us into a lane of dwarf pines. Steep path, by which further we have some safety catches, which aren't necessary, then leads us all the way to scenic Ciprnik. Kranjska Gora - Bedančev dom 50 minutes, Bedančev dom - Mojčin dom 1:20, Mojčin dom - Ciprnik 45 minutes.
While ski slope operates the access on the described path is forbidden.
