Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Lipce, where we turn left in the direction of Blejska Dobrava and Spodnje Gorje. Soon when we drive past the railway underpass, we are at the next crossroad, where we turn right - Bled, Kočna. At first, a zig-zag road ascends straight towards the west and soon at the left turn reaches the top or settlement Kočna. Our starting point is located on the left side of the road, few meters before the settlement sign. Beacause of continuous line we drive ahead past first houses, where on the right we notice a bus stop. Here we turn around and return back, almost to the turn, where we would descend back into a valley. We stop on a macadam parking lot.
Path description:
From the starting point, we go back on the road towards the settlement. After 250 meters, few meters before the bus stop on the right we go on a narrower side asphalt road on our left, which takes us past few houses uphill. When after the left turn road flattens and loses an asphalt pavement, it brings us on a larger meadow. We continue on a cart track which at first sticks slightly to the left and by the edge of the forest ascends a little past the pasture on the right. Quite soon we find ourselves on the saddle between two peaks - Žerjavec and Vrše, where there is a crossing. Here we go sharply right, namely on first (at first gravel) path, which ascends uphill (second is gentle path on Blejska Dobrava). After a short ascent, we run into a bench, and we continue on this path, which then narrows and ascends a little steeper towards the summit Vrše. After this when the path turns left and the steepness decreases, we can enjoy a view on Koroška Bela and Javorniški Rovt. And shortly we step also in mixed forest, through which path after a shorter and gentle ascent brings us to the summit of 850 meters high hill Vrše. Here, on the left side we notice a footpath which is descending on the eastern slope. When there we descend few altitude meters towards the valley, from the left joins another footpath (shortcut from the path on which we came to the summit), and short time we still continue descending. We quickly run into a fence behind which is situated hunting cottage. A little lower, on for this settled spot we cross the fence. Near the pleasant cottage we can enjoy a view on Ljubljana basin, on part of Blejska Dobrava, and on Brezniške vasi (so-called) Dežele.
