Access to starting point:
A) From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Vodice, and then we continue driving to a first traffic light crossroad in Vodice, where we continue left in the direction of Cerklje na Gorenjskem and Brnik. When we get to the main roundabout in Spodnji Brnik we continue driving in the direction of Cerklje and ski slope Krvavec. At the end of the settlement Cerklje na Gorenjskem we leave the main road which continues towards Velesovo and Visoko and we continue driving slightly right on a road in the direction of the ski slope Krvavec. Further, we get to the village Grad, where signs for settlement Ambrož pod Krvavcem point us to the right on a steep asphalt road (straight bottom station of the cable car on Krvavec and Štefanja Gora). When the steepness on a steep road decreases a little, we will get to a crossroad, where we continue left in the direction of the settlement Ambrož pod Krvavcem (straight settlement Ravne, Apno and Šenturška Gora). A little further, the road for some time descends a little and then it is ascending through occasionally quite panoramic slopes. Higher, we get to Ambrož pod Krvavcem, where on the left side we bypass church of St. Ambrož and tourist farm Pr Ambružarju. From the tourist farm ahead road passes into the forest and is ascending through it all the way to the mountain pasture Jezerca, where there is a large parking lot. The road here flattens and it turns left and about 500 meters ahead brings us to a crossroad, where we continue right in the direction of the mountain pasture Kriška planina (straight upper station of the cable car and mountain hut Planinski dom on Gospincu). Next follows only a short steep ascent and we get to the parking lot by the edge of the mountain pasture Kriška planina.
Now the road from the mountain pasture Jezerca to Kriška planina is closed for public traffic, this extends the path for approximately 15 minutes.
B) From highway Jesenice - Ljubljana we go to the exit Kranj - east, and then we continue driving towards Brnik, Komenda and Mengeš. When we get to the main roundabout in Spodnji Brnik we continue driving in the direction of Cerklje and ski slope Krvavec. At the end of the settlement Cerklje na Gorenjskem we leave the main road which continues towards Velesovo and Visoko and we continue driving slightly right on a road in the direction of the ski slope Krvavec. Further, we get to the village Grad, where signs for settlement Ambrož pod Krvavcem point us to the right on a steep asphalt road (straight bottom station of the cable car on Krvavec and Štefanja Gora). When the steepness on a steep road decreases a little, we will get to a crossroad, where we continue left in the direction of the settlement Ambrož pod Krvavcem (straight settlement Ravne, Apno and Šenturška Gora). A little further, the road for some time descends a little and then it is ascending through occasionally quite panoramic slopes. Higher, we get to Ambrož pod Krvavcem, where on the left side we bypass church of St. Ambrož and tourist farm Pr Ambružarju. From the tourist farm ahead road passes into the forest and is ascending through it all the way to the mountain pasture Jezerca, where there is a large parking lot. The road here flattens and it turns left and about 500 meters ahead brings us to a crossroad, where we continue right in the direction of the mountain pasture Kriška planina (straight upper station of the cable car and mountain hut Planinski dom on Gospincu). Next follows only a short steep ascent and we get to the parking lot by the edge of the mountain pasture Kriška planina.
Now the road from the mountain pasture Jezerca to Kriška planina is closed for public traffic, this extends the path for approximately 15 minutes.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we go on the road in the direction of the mountain pasture Planina Koren. The road then through the underpass brings us to a quarry, where we leave it. With an ascent we continue on a pleasant otherwise poorly visible path which runs by the edge of grazing fence. The path which becomes better visible then leaves grazing area of the mountain pasture Kriška planina and passes into terrain covered with dwarf pines. After a short ascent, the path brings us to a nice vantage point, from which a nice view opens up through a valley of Korošica. Further, the path starts steeply descending and after few minutes we are already 60m lower. The path then flattens and from the right joins the path from the previously mentioned valley. Further, we cross a lane of a forest, and the path then again starts ascending. During the ascent unmarked path which leads on a saddle Razor branches off to the left, and we continue on a marked path, which after additional few minutes brings us on the south part of the mountain pasture Planina Koren. The path then past a watering-place for animals descends to shepherd cottages on the mountain pasture. Here our path continues slightly left (slightly right mountain pasture Košutna) on meadows on the bottom of the valley (path is at first poorly visible). After that, the path is becoming increasingly steep and after a little less than 30 minutes of walking, it brings us to a smaller pond, where there is poorly marked crossing. We continue straight (right Košutna) and we follow gently sloping path to the next crossing, where we continue on the right path in the direction of Kompotela (left Vrh Korena). From here on, the orientation is a little harder and in fog very difficult. The path ahead slowly starts slightly ascending on a grassy slope vegetated with dwarf pines. The footpath then by nice views brings us to the summit of Kompotela.
