Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice, we go to the exit Jesenice - west (Hrušica), and then we continue driving in the direction of Kranjska Gora and then towards Rateče. 300 meters before snack bar Zelenci, we will notice on the left side a larger macadam parking lot, where we park.
Path description:
By the parking lot we notice signs for walking path number 12, which points us slightly downwards to the wooden bridge over Zelenci. Here with a nice view towards the ridge of Ponce we cross still young river Sava Dolinka, and then we slightly ascend to the near cycling road. We follow the road few meters to the left and then we get to winter parking lot by the most western two-seater chairlift of the ski slope Kranjska Gora (Velika dolina). From winter parking lot, past the hayrack in few 10 strides we walk to the bottom station of the already mentioned cableway, and from there we continue right on a macadam road. Macadam road quickly splits into two parts, and at the crossing, from which a nice view opens up towards Ponce, we follow left by the ski slope Velika dolina. Further, we are ascending on narrower and worse macadam road which gradually changes into rough cart track. Higher rough cart track turns right and a little downwards to the nearby torrent, and right on this spot we leave it and we continue on the old, partly already overgrown cart track which is still ascending by or on a ski track.
Only few 10 meters before the ski track turns left towards the upper station of two-seater chairlift Velika dolina, our poorly visible cart track turns right into a torrent gully. Here on the other side of the torrent we look for continuation of cart track which is then ascending diagonally towards the right. After a few minute crossing slope flattens, and the cart track turns left and continues on and by the edge of wide and indistinct ridge. When after few minutes, hard to follow old cart track turns right, we leave it and we continue the ascent straight upwards on easy passable pathless terrain.
From here ahead we can occasionally notice something that looks like footpath, otherwise we are all the time ascending on a relatively easy pathless terrain. Relatively steep pathless "path" lasts good 30 minutes, after that slope flattens a little and brings us on the ridge, where we join the marked path from Planica.
When we reach the mentioned path, we follow it to the left, and further it leads by the edge of in parts precipitous and panoramic ridge. Higher, the path returns into the forest, where for some time steeply ascends, and then it brings us on the main ridge of Ciprnik, where we join the path from Vitranc.
Here we continue right and we are for some time still ascending through the forest, through which more frequently beautiful views are opening up. Forest is soon replaced by dwarf pines, and the path gradually passes on pretty steep slopes, which are on some spots also slightly exposed. This in the last part quite steep path, then with a view on surrounding peaks, we follow all the way to a panoramic summit, which we reach after few minutes of additional walking.
