Access to starting point:
A) From highway Ljubljana - Maribor we go to the exit Slovenske Konjice and we continue driving towards the mentioned settlement. From Slovenske Konjice we continue towards Zreče, and further we follow the road in the direction of Rogla. When we get to Rogla we continue on the main road which for some time continues without large changes in altitude, and then turns to the left and gradually starts descending. The mentioned road, we follow to the mountain hut Koča na Pesku, where we park on a parking lot near the mountain hut.
B) First, we drive to Lovrenc na Pohorju (to here from the road Maribor - Dravograd), and then we continue driving towards Rogla and Koča na Pesku. Further macadam road then at first brings us to Mašinžaga and then also to the mountain hut Koča na Pesku. We park on a parking lot at the mountain hut Koča na Pesku.
Path description:
From the mountain hut Koča na Pesku we continue on the road in the direction of Mašin Žaga. The road is at first descending through a small valley between Rogla on the left and Pesek on the right, and then it brings us to Mašin Žaga, where there is a smaller artificial lake.
From the lake, we continue a little to the left in the direction towards the lakes Lovrenška jezera, and a little further over a small bridge we cross a smaller stream. Next follows approximately 20 minutes of ascent, and then the path from Hotel Planja on Rogla joins.
We go right in the direction of lakes Lovrenška jezera (left - Hotel Planja) and we continue on a macadam road which is in the winter time converted into a cross country ski trail. Follows few minutes of easy walking through the spruce forest, crossing of the stream and then blazes from the road point us on a wider footpath, on which we continue. A gentle ascent follows through a thin spruce forest and a pleasant path brings us to a lookout tower at lakes Lovrenška jezera.
To view the lakes we continue on paved footpath for approximately five minutes.
From the tower we return few meters back to a crossing, where a signpost point us to the right towards Ribniška koča. After a shorter gentle descent, from the left joins the path from Hotel Planja (the path which bypasses lakes Lovrenška jezera and is few minutes shorter). We continue on the right footpath which mostly horizontally crosses slopes below the lakes Lovrenška jezera. Because we walk very near the lakes, by the path there are a lot of small wells, on which the water is flowing out from the lakes. The path soon after that passes out of the forest on meadows and it brings us to the next crossing, where the path from Lovrenc na Pohorju joins.
We continue left (right - Lovrenc na Pohorju) and through the meadow we start lightly descending. A pleasant path gradually passes into a more dense forest, where we start descending even a little steeper. During the descent on the path which runs partly on a footpath, partly on a cart track, we run into a pleasant well, and a little lower to the lowest point of the path, saddle Šiklarica (1300 meters).
The path ahead starts slightly ascending and it still runs through the spruce forest. After approximately half an hour ascent, the forest starts to get thinner, and to the right the path branches off towards the lake Ribniško jezero, to which there is approximately 10 minutes, and we continue straight upwards on a marked path. Only few minutes ahead we notice grassy Jezerski vrh with a large monument, to which we get to without any bigger problems.
