Access to starting point:
From Tolmin or Bovec we drive to Kobarid, from there we follow the road in the direction of Drežnica (turn-off of the road is from Kobarid bypass). We continue through a bridge over the river Soča and immediately after the bridge we turn left in the direction of Drežnica. We then follow this mostly ascending road to the center of Drežnica, where we turn right and drive ahead to primary school, which is a starting point of our path.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we go past the chapel and primary school on a marked path to Krn. Further, the path leads us through the forest and then by the pasture to the signpost Triglav National Park. Here also the path on the road joins (road from Drežnica) and we continue on a marked path, which a little higher crosses the stream Ročica, and then we get to a marked crossing, where we continue left in the direction of bivouac and very difficult path on Krn (right easier path on Krn).
The path ahead passes into a dense forest, through which it is moderately ascending by the stream Ročica. Further, the path turns a little to the right and takes us to Bivak na Črniku.
From the bivouac, we go sharply left and we still continue the ascent on the path which is ascending through the forest. When after few minutes of additional walking, we step out of the forest we turn a little to the left, and after a shorter crossing of slopes below the walls of Krn we get to the beginning of the climbing part of the path.
Already immediately at the beginning of the climbing part with the help of stemples and a steel cable we almost vertically ascend on a rocky slope. After a shorter very steep ascent, the path turns slightly to the left and for a short time becomes a little less demanding. Next follows an ascent by the steel cable and then hairpin ascent on very steep and unsecured grassy slope (in wet on this part is a great risk for slipping, and also in dry quite some caution is needed). The path ahead turns right and it brings us to a marked crossing.
Right (Zahodna drežniška) path crosses exposed western slopes of Krn and further joins the path from the mountain pasture Kuhinja and easier path from Drežnica, and we continue left in the direction of the path Pot Silva Korena.
Further path runs on very steep and exposed ridge, which is well secured. Such a path then brings us to the inscription box with an inscription book, which is situated before the most exposed part of the path. The path ahead runs on a relatively narrow and precipitous ridge, where we twice ascend on vertical ladder. Next follows some very steep ascents by the steel cable, and then the path flattens and it brings us to the cottage Gomiščkovo zavetišče na Krnu.
From the cottage, we continue in the direction of Krn, and we reach it after approximately 10 minutes of additional walking.
We can descend on easier south path.
On the way: Bivak na Črniku (1160m), Gomiščkovo zavetišče na Krnu mountain hut (2182m)
