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 at the marked crossing, where we continue right in the direction of the easier path on Krn (left bivouac and very demanding path on Krn).
The path ahead runs through the forest and is all the time well-marked. Higher from the right also joins an unmarked path from Podbrdo, and here we continue left and further we gradually start ascending in zig-zags. For some time we are ascending relatively steeply, and then we get to a smaller clearing, on which stands a hunting cottage.
From the hunting cottage ahead, the path starts ascending below the slopes of Kožljak (1587 meters) and soon turns a little to the left. Higher, the path brings us out of the forest and nice views open up on Drežnica and Krasji vrh (1773 meters). Further, the path for some time crosses quite steep slopes, and then turns a little to the right and joins the path from the mountain pasture Kuhinja.
Here we continue left in the direction of Krn and we continue the ascent on an old military mule track, which is ascending in zig-zags by an indistinct ridge. Very panoramic path which continues by the edge of ample grassy slopes of Krn, is getting closer to the cottage Gomiščkovo zavetišče, which already some time we see in front of us. Higher, a grassy slope is gradually replaced by stones, and a moderately steep path finally brings us to the already mentioned cottage, where from the left joins the path Pot Silva Korena.
From the cottage, we continue in the direction of Krn, and we reach it after approximately 10 minutes of additional walking.
On the way: Gomiščkovo zavetišče na Krnu mountain hut (2182m)
