Access to starting point:
We drive into the center of Bovec, where from a crossroad at the main square we continue on an ascending road which past the post office starts ascending towards the nearby church. We bypass the mentioned church on the left side, and then we get to Kaninska vas. Bovec then ends and the road for some time leads towards the west. At a smaller crossing we leave the main asphalt road which leads towards the village Plužna and we continue driving on a slightly right road (behind the crossroad there are signs for road Gozdec). Behind the nearby homestead, the road once again splits, this time we choose a slightly left road (slightly right Zavrzelno and the starting point of the path on Rombon). Further, we are ascending on a macadam road which higher brings us to B cableway station on Kanin. At B station, the road turns sharply left and then in a diagonal ascent after approximately 1 km of additional driving brings us to the next crossroad. From the mentioned crossroad, we continue left or straight (sharply right mountain pasture Krnica), and the road from the crossroad we follow only a short time. By the road, we soon notice signs for Kanin, and we park about 20 meters ahead, on a smaller parking lot by the road.
From Trg Golobarskih žrtev, to the starting point, there is approximately 9 km.
Path description:
From the starting point, we return few steps back, and then we go on a marked path in the direction of Visoki Kanin and Vrh Laške planje. The path immediately starts ascending steeply, and mostly leads through a dense forest, only occasionally a view opens up a little on surroundings. During the ascent, the path leads us below the cliffs of Turn v Skednju (1555 meters). When the cliffs end we get to an unmarked crossing, where we continue slightly right on a marked path (slightly left unmarked path which leads on Veliki Babanski Skedenj 2121 meters), and it soon steeply ascends through a short steep slope, where mainly in wet there is a greater danger of slipping. The steepness soon decreases and we get to an abandoned mountain pasture Gozdec, which we bypass on the right side.
Further, we are ascending through a thinner forest, so that from the path, a view opens up a little in the direction of basin Bovška kotlina and Krn mountains. Next follows a quite steady ascent, and with a view on walls of Veliki Skedenj we get to a smaller source, which is situated right by the path. Ahead still followable path is overgrown by grass, which after the rain, in the morning can still be quite wet. Eventually, the path turns more towards the west and gradually it becomes less steep. Next follows few minutes of panoramic ascent and we get to the ruins of old mountain hut Koča Petra Skalarja, which in the year 1972 burned down.
We bypass the cottage on the left side, and then we are for some time gently to moderately ascending on more grassy terrain. The path then turns more towards the south, so that we get feeling, that we go in the wrong direction. Next follows some of a steeper ascent, and the path slowly turns to the right, so that further we walk mostly towards the west. Next follows few minutes of easy walking and we get to a marked crossing, where we continue right downwards in the direction of the mountain hut Dom Petra Skalarja na Kaninu (straight Visoki Kanin and Vrh Laške planje).
After a short descent, the path flattens, and then it crosses karst terrain. Next follows an ascent on high mountain landscape of Kaninski podi, where the footpath mostly isn't visible, but blazes are quite frequent, so with orientation in nice weather there aren't any problems, but completely different is of course in fog. The path ahead leads us on limestone pavements and among abysses, caves and cracks, therefore a little more caution is needed, and in wet the smooth plates can be also quite slippery. Further, we are for some time ascending diagonally on slopes of Velika Gnila glava (2114 meters), and the path on this part brings us to the next marked crossing.
We continue slightly right (left we return on the path towards Vrh Laške planje) and we still carefully follow a worse footpath and blazes. This path, which offers a really nice view towards Kanin massif, we then follow all the way to the mountain hut Dom Petra Skalarja na Kaninu, from where a nice view opens up also towards the east.
