Access to starting point:
A) We drive to Tolmin, and then we continue driving towards Kobarid. When we get to the settlement Idrsko, we turn left in the direction of the settlement Livek, from Livek we follow the signs for Avsa and Matajur. From Avsa we continue good 300 meters ahead, and then we park on a marked parking lot.
B) From Kobarid we drive towards Tolmin, but only to the settlement Idrsko, where we turn right in the direction of the settlement Livek, and from Livek we follow the signs for Avsa and Matajur. From Avsa we continue good 300 meters ahead, and then we park on a marked parking lot.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we go on a marked path in the direction of Matajur, where we at first walk through the forest and for some time we step on a cart track. Next follows an ascent through two shorter meadows, and then we return into a dense forest, through which we are moderately to steeply ascending, and here and there path also slightly descends. Higher, we cross metal fence, behind which, the path turns right and continues on a cart track. Cart track soon ends, and we continue on a footpath which continues through partly grassy slope, surrounded by lanes of forest. Even a little further, the path turns left and on slopes of Srednji vrh entirely flattens.
Here we can on pathless terrain in few minutes ascend on Srednji vrh, otherwise we continue on a marked path, which crosses slopes of the mentioned summit and a little ahead joins the forest road. We follow the road to the right, and then we quickly get to a marked crossing, which is situated into a smaller valley between Mrzli vrh and Srednji vrh.
At the crossing marked path but without blazes branches off to the right on Mrzli vrh, Srednji vrh and Idrska planina, and we continue on the road which on the west side of Mrzli vrh splits.
We continue on the left road (right Idrska planina), which only a little further joins "new" path from Avsa or Livek.
From poorly noticeable crossing we walk on the road for few minutes, and then on next marked crossing we leave it and we continue right in the direction towards Matajur (straight Dom na Matajure).
Further, the path again starts ascending over partly grassy slope, from which increasingly beautiful views opening up on surrounding mountains. Higher, when the path gradually already passes on the northern slopes, from the right joins also the path from the village Svino, and we continue towards Matajur. Next follows few minutes of a diagonal ascent and we already get to a crossing below Glava, where we leave usual path on Matajur and we continue straight in the direction of Visoka glava (left normal path on Matajur).
Next follows quite gentle walk, on the path that runs north from eastern Matajur ridge and is except in dry periods, quite muddy. When we get closer to northern ridge of Matajur, almost unnoticeably we stride across the national border, and then in a diagonal ascent towards the right, we reach the mentioned ridge, where we join the better beaten path, which we immediately leave because we continue right on pathless terrain, on which in approximately 5 minutes we ascend on an indistinct peak of Visoka glava.
