Access to starting point:
A) From Cerklje na Gorenjskem, Šenčur or Kranj we drive towards Preddvor. When we reach the main road Kranj - Jezersko we follow it towards Jezersko, then before the settlement Tupaliče we turn right in the direction of Možjanca. In Tupaliče we again turn right, and then on an ascending road we drive to the settlement Možjanca, where near the church of St. Nikolaj or a little above it at the recycling spot we park on an appropriate place.
B) From Zgornje Jezersko we drive on the main road towards Kranj. When we get to a crossroad, where a road towards Preddvor branches off to the right, we continue straight, and then first crossroad left. After a short ascent, the road flattens, and then on the marked crossroad we continue left in the direction of Možjanca. Next follows an ascent to the settlement Možjanca, where near the church of St. Nikolaj or little above it at the recycling spot we park on an appropriate place.
Path description:
From the church of St. Nikolaj on Možjanca in few 10 strides we ascend to a crossroad at the recycling spot, and from there we continue right in the direction of Kopa, Davovec and Krvavec (left viewpoint). Further, we walk on the macadam road, from which we soon go slightly right, on the bottom cart track, on which we are pointed to also by the sign of bridle path. Cart track, which further crosses slopes towards the right quickly splits, and we choose the upper cart track, by which there is the next sign for bridle path. A little further, the bottom path joins again, and the cart track then for some time crosses slopes towards the right, and at the crossings we follow the main path, the one that seems to be best beaten. After approximately 45 minutes of walking from the recycling spot we get to the next marked crossing, where we continue left in the direction of Kopa (slightly right continues bridle path).
The path continues on more plateau terrain, and at unmarked crossings we still follow the better beaten path. When we reach a wider cart track, it brings us on an indistinct saddle, where there is the next crossing.
From the crossing, we continue straight in the direction of Zapečnikova planina and Skutman (right Kopa, possible also on Skutman) and on a cart track we start moderately descending. During the descent, the path branches off to the left towards the chapel, and we continue on a cart track which gradually flattens and brings us into a smaller valley, where it again starts ascending. Next follows some more of a light ascent, and then over an indistinct ridge we pass on the northern slopes, on which we diagonally descend. After the crossing of a well path turns left and it brings us out of the forest on the mountain pasture Zapečnikova planina, where on the left there is a hunting observatory, and from the main part of the mountain pasture a beautiful view opens up.
We continue on the other side of the mountain pasture, where we reach a wide cart track, and we continue left downwards. After a short descent, the cart track turns left downwards, and we go slightly right on a beaten footpath which quickly ascends on the ridge. When we reach the ridge a beautiful view opens up in the direction towards Kočna and Grintovec, and the path gradually passes into the forest, through which it continues all the way to a few minutes distant peak.
