Access to starting point:
We drive to Kamnik and follow the road ahead towards the valley of Kamniška Bistrica. Only few ten meters before the bottom station of a cable car on Velika planina, forest road branches off to the left downwards into a valley of Korošica. We go on this road which at first descends, then crosses a bridge and a little further brings us to a crossroad, where we continue straight. Only a little further, we come to the next crossroad, where we again continue straight (possible also left - circular road). This gradually steeper road, to which from the right joins another macadam road (on this we would come, if right behind the bridge we would continue right) we then follow to Markova raven, which we recognize by that, that by the road there is a smaller parking lot, torrent and a wide cart track which goes left upwards, and the road starts steeply descending.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we go on a wide cart track which after few ten meters brings us to the next parking lot. Over the parking lot we continue straight and we are then ascending on a cart track which turns left. After few minutes of walking, the cart track has a crossing, where we go on the right marked cart track. We follow it few minutes to the spot, where the footpath branches off to the right towards Krvavec and mountain pasture Koren. Turn-off isn't specifically marked so we have to carefully follow the blazes. The path ahead is ascending on the right side of the torrent quite steeply upwards. The path then brings us to a crossing, where we continue right in the direction of "ZA VRATA". The path ahead slowly passing into less dense forest so that in parts we cross some smaller meadow or even short scree. Views are also becoming increasingly beautiful. Further, the path brings us below the foot of shorter wall from which right upwards unmarked path branches off on the mountain pasture Koren. We continue on the left side of the wall slightly upwards. The path ahead slightly descends and it brings us to a pleasant well. The path ahead passes on the left side of a well and again starts ascending. The path ahead crosses a shorter lane of dwarf pines, and then starts ascending on grass. Ahead the path is hard to follow because among grass it quickly vanishes but blazes, which are rare will help us. After 20 minutes of ascent from a well path brings us to a wooden cottage. The path behind the cottage turns left in the forest and after a short ascent joins the path from the mountain pasture Kriška planina (Krvavec). We continue sharply right and without larger ascent or descent we cross a lane of a forest. Further, the path starts ascending on slopes, which are vegetated with dwarf pines and some trees. After 20 minutes of ascent steepness decreases and in front of us, we notice shepherd cottage on the mountain pasture 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 a 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.
Only few steps from the peak towards the east marked path on Mokrica branches off. We go on this path which starts descending. After a good ten minutes of descent on steep grass path brings us on the ridge of Mokrica. The path which is still slightly descending is on some spots slightly exposed. After a little less than half an hour of walking from Kompotela path brings us to the inscription box on the top of Mokrica.
PP: In fog the orientation is very difficult mainly from the mountain pasture Koren ahead.
