Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Kranj - vzhod and follow the road ahead in the direction of Jezersko. In Zgornje Jezersko, at the crossroad at the gas station, we turn left towards the church of St. Ožbolt in Jezersko (straight border crossing Jezersko). Further, we drive past hotel Planinka, and we follow the road to the near church of St. Ožbolt. We park near the church, or a little lower on the settled parking lot by the cemetery.
Path description:
From the church, we continue on the asphalt road which moderately ascends and after few 10 strides it brings us to the spot, where it ends. Here we will on a tree notice a signpost for Virnikov Grintovec, which points us to the right on a footpath, that is gently ascending by the edge of a meadow. The path which goes after that in the forest and which starts moderately ascending, after 15 minutes of walking, immediately after the stream, brings us to the homestead Žmitek, where we also step on a macadam road.
Marked footpath only crosses the mentioned road, then starts steeply ascending through a dense forest. After few minutes of a steep ascent, we join less steep cart track which we then follow to a smaller saddle between Olipov rob (other name for Žmitkov špic) on the left and Žmitkov vrh on the right.
On the mentioned saddle we leave a wide marked path which leads towards Virnikov Grintovec and we continue left on less beaten, but easy to follow footpath which after less than 5 minutes of additional walking brings us below the peak of Žmitkov špic. Here the path steeply ascends, and we get help from a rope and a little higher also from a short ladder. After approximately 15 meters of steep ascent, the path flattens, turns to the left and after few additional strides, it brings us on a panoramic peak.
