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 continue straight upwards on a steep cart track which is ascending on the right side of gorge Martuljška soteska. Cart track, which is mostly ascending through the forest after 15 minutes brings us on a nice vantage point, where a view opens up towards a valley. The path then goes again in the forest and continues to ascend. A little further from the left joins the path from the waterfall, and a little further, the path towards the bivouac Bivak pod Špikom branches off to the right.
We go on this path, which is at first ascending gently on a cart track. A wide path on which we are ascending then leads us past the rock with the caption "pod Špik". And only 5 minutes after this rock we leave the marked path which leads towards the bivouac Bivak pod Špikom. At the spot, where we notice few smaller cairns unmarked cart track branches off to the right, which slightly descends and in doing so it crosses a small well. Cart track, which then starts ascending soon has two successive crossing. In both cases we continue straight and we follow it a little higher to the next crossing, where we continue left upwards (on a tree we notice an unofficial blaze and arrow to the left). Further, we are ascending on unmarked and wide path, which higher brings us to the next orientational problem. At the spot, where the path gets close to a wide cart track we again notice unofficial blazes, which point us to the left upwards on a steep forest path (orientation ahead is much easier). After 15 minutes, the steepness decreases a little and the path out of the forest brings us on the periphery of a torrent gully, by which we are then ascending. A little higher footpath turns right and again leads in the forest, where after a short descent, we come to a pleasant well, which we cross only few meters below a source. The path then again starts steeply ascending, and the forest is soon replaced by dwarf pines. The increasingly panoramic path higher brings us between two boulders, where there is a smaller crossing (on the right boulder a sign PP, the path Planica - Pokljuka).
We continue right on the bottom path (left Rušica and Rigljica, possible also on Kurji vrh but the path is in the upper part quite overgrown with dwarf pines), which crosses slopes of Kurji vrh. The path which is moderately ascending crosses some steep grassy slopes, which are in wet dangerous for slipping, but in dry the ascent does not pose a greater risk. When the path passes from the western on the northern slopes we come to a crossing, where we continue on the left upper path which starts ascending steeply by the edge of shorter cliffs. This steep path on which steepness in the last part decreases a little we follow to Kurji vrh.
Inscription box is on the secondary peak, because the peak is vegetated with dwarf pines and therefore hardly accessible.
Trip can be extended to: Rigljica (2 h)
