Access to starting point:
First, we drive to Preddvor or to the settlement Tupaliče (to here from Gorenjska highway or Kranj), and then we continue driving in the direction of Jezersko. When we get to Zgornje Jezersko, on part, where the road flattens, we leave the main road and we continue driving right in the direction of organic tourist farm Makek, Češka koča, Veliki vrh and waterfall Čedca (main road we leave before Petrol gas station). Immediately after the turn off from the main road at first we descend a little and then we follow the road in the direction of farm Makek. Further, the road starts ascending, and we are driving there to a smaller crossroad, where to the left the road continues towards the farm Makek, and in the direction of straight continues the road which leads further past a turn-off of the path towards the waterfall Čedca and past a turn-off of the path on Veliki vrh. We park on an appropriate place near the crossroad, namely the way we don't hinder frequent forestry work.
Path description:
From the starting point, we continue on the right road which crosses a torrent and continues by a former ski slope. We leave mentioned road on the part where former ski slope ends and we continue right on the path which ascends on the old ski track. Higher, the footpath turns a little right and crosses shorter overgrown part, after which we get on better uhojeno path which leads from the farm Mlinar or hamlet Ravne. The path ahead leads us on the route of former ski lift and is in parts steeply ascending, and then it brings us to a macadam road (to here possible also on the road which makes a longer turn). When we step on the road, we follow it to the right, and we walk there to the marked turn-off of the path on Veliki vrh.
The path ahead leads us on a cart track, and then blazes from there point us to the right on a well-beaten footpath, which gradually passes into a dense forest. When the forest ends we step on a clearing, in the middle of which is situated a wooden cottage, and which is part of the nearby mountain pasture Murijeva planina.
Before the cottage marked path turns left, which continues towards Veliki vrh, and we continue straight, so that on the left side we bypass the mentioned cottage. At the wooden toilet path goes into the forest and starts diagonally descending on a cart track. The path ahead for some time leads by old wire fence, then the path leads us by the lower part of the clearing, where on the right side there is a hunting observatory. Next follows some walking through a dense forest and then the path brings us on the western ridge of Veliki vrh, where we step out of the forest. With a view on massif of Kočna we descend a level lower, where we then quickly reach the forest road which we left at the turn-off for Veliki vrh.
Few strides we walk on the road, and then we continue slightly left on a cart track which ascends parallel with the road. We continue on a cart track which we follow at some crossings in the right direction. After the crossings follows a short ascent and the cart track through a lane of a forest brings us to hut Ovča koča, mountain hut is situated on the left upper part of a meadow.
