Access to starting point:
First we drive to Tolmin, from there we follow the road in direction of Zatolmin (main road we leave at the traffic light). In Zatolmin we notice signposts for Javorca, which point us on an ascending road towards Javorca. Occasionally quite narrow and in parts precipitous road after approximately 8 km of driving brings us to a smaller crossroad, where the road towards Javorca branches off to the left upwards. We continue straight, and we follow the road only for approximately 100 meters, and then on an appropriate place by the gate we also park.
Path description:
From the starting point we continue on a macadam road (road is closed for public traffic), and after few minutes of easy walking it brings us to main part of the mountain pasture, where there stand few cottages. Behind the mountain pasture the road becomes even a little worse, and after few minutes of additional walking it brings us to a crossing, where the path towards the mountain pasture Planina na Prodih branches off to the right (access to mountain pasture is very interesting, because we have to cross river Tolminka, and this is done by manual cableway). We continue straight, and road finally changes into a cart track and higher into well preserved mule track. After that path becomes a little steeper and past two benches and higher past fresh rockfall (earthquake in Posočje 1998) brings us to a grazing fence, over which we step on south edge of the mountain pasture Planina pod Osojnico. Only few meters ahead path splits on two parts. We continue on the right bottom path, on which in a gentle descent we quickly get to the hunting cottage at the source of Tolminka.
From the source of Tolminka we continue gentle ascent over mountain pasture Planina pod Osojnico, and from the left soon joins upper path, which is exposed to active rockfall.
We continue in direction of the mountain pasture Prode and Prehodci on the path, which brings us to mighty torrent where there is again a crossing.
At the crossing we continue right following the signs »Planina Prode« and by dam we cross wide riverbed of a torrent. On the other side of riverbed is again a crossing. This time we continue left, right leads path towards the mountain pasture Planina Prode. Path then short time leads through the forest parallel with riverbed of a torrent, after that turns to the right and starts ascending. Later path brings us on a smaller clearing, and then starts a little steeper ascending through the forest. Further we are for quite some time ascending in zig zags through the forest. Higher the forest becomes on some sections a little thinner and increasingly beautiful views start to open up. Path then turns to the right and in ascent crosses slopes towards southeast. Out of the forest we come on slopes a little overgrown with nettles and bushes and follows the last ascent to the hunting cottage on Planina Dobrenjščica.
At the hunting cottage we continue left towards northwest and path soon brings us to a marked crossing. To the right upwards leads path towards the mountain hut Koča na planini Razor, and we continue left and we still cross a slope towards northwest. By the path we will then soon notice poorly visible footpath, which leads left downwards towards a well (marked with caption »Voda 40m« (water 40m)). From here we continue a good 100 meters on a footpath, after that we will notice right upwards a narrow lane, which isn't vegetated with dwarf pines. Here we leave the marked path and go by dwarf pines straight upwards. Further we are then steeply ascending by dwarf pines upwards all until we come on a worse beaten path. On footpath we continue right and then start ascending in zig zags upwards. Path is here marked with some cairns and out of the dwarf pines brings us on rocky slopes. Path becomes even slightly less visible and turns a little to the right towards the east. A little below the ridge we will notice military bunker towards which we ascend. From here a short ascent follows to a saddle between peaks Kser and Vrh Škrli, where we join the marked path, which leads on Tolminski Kuk.
We continue right on the ridge in direction of Tolminski Kuk and path soon brings us to indistinct peak named Kser.
Path ahead descends a little on the ridge and it brings us to a smaller saddle. Further we again start ascending, and path runs mostly by the left side of the ridge. Pretty steep path, which on some spots is slightly exposed then brings us on the ridge. A short ascent follows on the ridge and path brings us on next peak (Vrh Planje 1971 meters) from which a nice view opens up on Tolminski Kuk.
From Vrh Planje the path starts descending steeper on in parts exposed ridge and after 100 lost altitude meters brings us on a saddle Planja, where from the left side joins unmarked path from mountain pasture Govnjač.
We continue on path, which starts steeply ascending on northwestern slope of Tolminski Kuk. This part is because of substantial steepness also very exposed to falling stones. Very steep path, which on some spots is also a little exposed after 30 minutes of walking from the saddle Planja brings us on panoramic peak.
On the way: The Tolminka spring (695m), Planina Dobrenjščica (1304m), Kser (1900m), Vrh Planje (1971m), Planja (1874m)
