Access to starting point:
From Mojstrana we drive towards Kranjska Gora or vice versa, but only to the village Gozd Martuljek, where we park on a parking lot near the bridge over the river Sava Dolinka (parking lot is located after the bridge, or before, if we come from Kranjska Gora).
Path description:
From the parking lot, we continue by the main road towards Kranjska Gora, but only to a spot, where cycling road branches off to the left (by the beginning of the cycling path there are also signposts, which point us on the mentioned road). We follow the cycling road to the first crossroad, where we continue straight on a macadam road (cycling road turns right), which quickly brings us to the next crossroad.
We continue right and we follow for traffic closed road to TNP sign. Further, the path splits into two parts. We go on the left path, which brings us to a small bridge, which crosses a river. Immediately after the small bridge, we turn right into a gorge of Martuljek waterfalls. The path ahead is exposed to falling stones so it is best to put on a helmet. The path ahead is at first ascending gently by the river upwards and then with the help of stairs starts ascending steeper. After that, the path crosses a bigger bridge over a river and on the other side ascends on stairs below the wall. Only few steps ahead, the path brings us to another bridge, from which there is a nice view towards the waterfall Spodnji Martuljkov slap.
After the bridge, the path turns left and it ascends below the steep slopes near the waterfall. Further, we continue right on a wet ground almost horizontal. The path ahead ascends steeper and after a shorter ascent brings us on a cart track, where we continue left (here we join the path which bypasses gorge). Already after few steps, the path brings us to a crossing, where the path towards the bivouac Bivak pod Špikom branches off to the right (straight waterfall Zgornji Martuljkov slap). We go on this path, which is at first ascending gently on a cart track. When the path gets closer to a torrent we run into orientational problem. The path left runs to a torrent and then vanishes, we continue straight past a smaller boulder on which there is a trail blaze. After that also our path gets closer to a torrent but it doesn't cross it yet. Further, it is ascending on the right side and it crosses it a little later. Crossing isn't difficult, but it is a little harder to ascent from torrent back on the path. This part is long only three meters so it doesn't cause problems. The path ahead is slightly ascending through the forest to the next torrent where there stands a boulder with big blaze. The path ahead starts to ascend steeply on with a forest covered slope. In the middle of this ascent we run into a well and a little ahead on a pleasant bench. Further, the forest becomes thinner and the path brings us on unvegetated slopes below Špik, where we run into torrent deposits of stones. The path here turns slightly right and goes again in the forest. After few minutes of walking of a moderate ascent from torrent deposits we come to bivouac Bivak pod Špikom.
