Access to starting point:
A) First, we drive to Kranjska Gora, and then we continue driving towards Rateče. When we get to a roundabout near Rateče, we go to the exit in the direction of Planica. Next follows some ascent and we get to a large parking lot by Nordic centre Planica, where we park on a payable parking lot. The price for personal vehicles is 2,5 eur / day (September 2019).
B) Over the border crossing Rateče we drive to Slovenia, and then we soon go right towards Planica. Next follows some ascent and we get to a large parking lot by Nordic centre Planica, where we park on a payable parking lot. The price for personal vehicles is 2,5 eur / day (September 2019).
Path description:
From the parking lot, we walk to the foot of ski flying hill, where we start ascending on stairs (not on the metal one).
(In case the path on stairs is closed, to the jump-off platform we ascend on the macadam road which starts before first ski jumping hills. )
Next follows a steep ascent on the right side of ski flying hill, at the RTV tower path turns slightly to the right and for some time it passes into the forest. A little higher we get to a macadam road which we follow to the left (to here it is possible also on the road which starts before the beginning of ski jumping hills), and then we quickly get to jump-off platform of ski flying hill.
Here below the jump-off platform we pass on the other side of ski flying hill and we again start ascending on wooden stairs. After few minutes of further steep ascent we get to the top of the ramp, from where a nice view opens up on ski flying hill and Planica below us.
From the top of the ramp, to where we can get to also with a chairlift, we continue on the wide path, on which in a diagonal ascent towards the right we ascend to the road which leads from Rateče.
When we reach the mentioned road, we follow it to the left, and we walk there few more minutes or to the spot, where it starts descending towards the stream Beli potok.
On the mentioned part there is a smaller crossroad, from which we continue slightly right on a cart track which is ascending parallel with torrent ditch of the stream Beli potok. At the nearby crossing, we go straight, when the cart track ends we go left on a beaten path, by which there is a small cairn, and on the tree we also notice red arrow. Next follows a diagonal ascent towards the left, where we cross few torrents, including the main riverbed of the stream Beli potok. When the path flattens, there follows some more crossing, and then we join the hunting path which starts a little further from ski jumping hills in Planica.
Here we continue sharply right and at first, we still cross some gullies, and then by the gully, which is descending from Glave, we start steeply ascending in numerous zig-zags. Higher, we get into a smaller cirque, where the path for some time flattens, and after few 10 strides turns left and it ascends to the next crossing, from which we continue left (right Vratica, lakes Belopeška jezera and Mala Ponca).
Next follows some gentle walking, and then the path entirely flattens and turns slightly to the right. On this part we leave the path Planica - Pokljuka and we continue left on a worse footpath which starts ascending towards the summit Glave (on some maps Ovčja stran). This footpath which is getting worse, we then follow to a few minutes distant peak, from which a nice view opens up.
