Access to starting point:
From Kranjska Gora, over mountain pass Vršič we drive towards Bovec or vice versa, and we follow the road to 49th hairpin turn of road Ruska cesta or Vršiška cesta. Here we turn on a side road, on which after approximately 1 km of additional driving, we get to a parking lot by the mountain hut Koča pri izviru Soče.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we return on the road about 50 meters back, and then we continue in the direction of the footpath on Vršič. The path starts by a smaller stone fence, then past a smaller cottage leads in the forest. Through the forest, we are short time gently ascending, and then blazes lead on the other side of the stream Limarica. Ahead gradually we start ascending steeper on the left bank of Limarica, and from the path that runs below the steep mountain walls of Maklenova peč, nice views start opening up on Bavški Grintavec and ridge of Pelci. Higher, the path passes into the forest, through which it is then for quite some time ascending. Through the forest, we are ascending on an old mule track, which higher we leave because a sign for Vršič points us left on with leaves covered footpath, which soon joins old macadam road.
We follow the road to the right, and after few minutes of ascent we leave it, because poorly visible blazes point us to the left. Higher, we again join the road, and out of the forest it brings us on the more and more panoramic slopes. With a view on surrounding peaks, we walk to the memorial and only few meters after memorial we leave the road and we continue left through a torrent ditch. This path, which is further ascending diagonally over occasionally also little steeper slopes, we then follow all the way until we get on an asphalt road.
When we reach the road Ruska cesta, there we in good 10 minutes ascend almost to mountain pass Vršič, and there just before the beginning of the parking lot, we continue right towards the nearby mountain hut Tičarjev dom, which we reach after few 10 strides of additional walking.
From the mountain hut Tičarjev dom we continue on a macadam road, on which we start moderately ascending over panoramic slopes. With a view on surrounding peaks, we quickly get to a marked crossing.
Here we continue straight (right Sovna glava, Prisank, Razor...) on the road, from which a nice view opens up also on Heathen maiden. Here the road turns quite to the left and after few minutes of additional walking brings us to the mountain hut Poštarski dom na Vršiču.
By the mountain hut Poštarski dom we notice signs for Vršič, which point us a little to the right on a well visible footpath, which gradually passes into a lane of dwarf pines. Here the path starts ascending steeper and after few minutes of ascent over a slope which is partly vegetated with dwarf pines brings us on 1737 meters high peak.
On the way: Tičarjev dom na Vršiču mountain hut (1618m), Poštarski dom na Vršiču mountain hut (1688m)
