Access to starting point:
We drive to Luče (to here from Mozirje or over Kranjski rak) and forward towards Logarska dolina. Soon after the village Solčava we come to the crossroad, where a road to valley Logarska dolina branches off to the left. We turn left towards Logarska dolina (toll payment) and drive on the road to the parking lot at the mountain hut Koča pod Slapom Rinka, where we park.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we go on a wide tourist path which starts gently ascending. After a good ten minutes of walking, we come out of the forest, where we come to a crossing. We go left (right Orlovo gnezdo 3 minutes) in the direction of Dom na Okrešlju. The path ahead crosses a bridge and on the other side it starts ascending steeper. After a short ascent, the path brings us below the mountain walls, from where crossing to the top of the waterfall follows. This part is exposed to falling stones. After that, the path crosses Savinja again and then it is ascending upwards along the river with the help of the stairs. Next we are ascending on the right side (left bank) of Savinja. Soon, we come to the source of Savinja, where we again cross the water. On the other side, the path goes into a dense forest and after a short ascent, it brings us to winter shelter on Okrešelj. We continue left and in few steps we come to the mountain hut Dom na Okrešlju.
At the hut we go on a path in the direction of saddles Kamniško sedlo and Savinjsko sedlo. Soon, we come on the edge of a panoramic meadow, where there is a crossing. We continue left in the direction of Kamniško sedlo on the path which is at first moderately ascending through the forest and then over a lane of bushes. The path then entirely flattens and in short crossing brings us to scree on which on a well-made path we ascend to the entrance in less demanding mountain wall. Further, with the help of numerous fixed safety gear we ascend a level higher, where the steepness decreases a little, but the path is still pretty steep and exposed to falling stones. Higher, the path brings us to a steep and in snow for slipping dangerous scree, which we only cross. Next follows a short ascent on a wide and slightly exposed ledge behind which, the path brings us on ample grassy slopes of saddle Kamniško sedlo. Only few steps ahead we come to a crossing, where we continue right in the direction of Turska gora and Brana (left - Kamniška koča na Kamniškem sedlu 10 minutes). The path which is further ascending on the more and more rocky slope quickly brings us to scree, which is in snow dangerous for slipping. We walk the scree in a gentle diagonal ascent, and then the path brings us to the next crossing, where we continue left (right Turska gora). The path ahead is ascending steeper on the shady slopes of Brana. Steep and on the key spots secured path, which isn't very demanding soon brings us into a smaller gully, through which with some easy climbing we ascend on a nice vantage point. Here we continue sharply right on the path which after some additional 10 strides it brings us on the upper slope of Brana. Here the steepness decreases and a nice panoramic undemanding path in few minutes brings us on an ample peak.
