Access to starting point:
A) First, we drive to Kamnik, and then we continue driving on a regional road through the valley Tuhinjska dolina. Only a little after the village Laze v Tuhinju, we will get to the gas station, by which road branches off to the left towards villages Golice, Češnjice v Tuhinju and Okrog pri Motniku. Here we turn left and on a little narrower road we quickly reach the settlement Češnjice v Tuhinju and few 100 meters after the mentioned settlement also village Okrog pri Motniku, where there is the beginning of the described path. We park on an appropriate place by the road before or after the village.
B) From highway Maribor - Ljubljana, we go to the exit Vransko, and then we continue driving in the direction of Kamnik. In the settlement Špitalič we turn at the second turn off right, where we notice signs for Menina planina and Okrog pri Motniku. After the nearby church we continue left and then on a narrower road we start ascending towards the settlement Okrog pri Motniku. When we higher reach the main road which leads from Češnjice v Tuhinju towards Menina planina, we are at the beginning of the described path. We park on an appropriate place by the main road, above or below the village.
Path description:
From Okrog pri Motniku, on the part where the main road from Češnjice v Tuhinju joins steep road from Špitalič (by the crossroad there are signs for Okrog house numbers 1, 2 and 3), from the main road we continue left on a local road which is ascending among houses. On one of houses we notice a blaze, and above the village on an unmarked crossing of cart tracks we continue on the left, which ascends diagonally above the village. A short time we are ascending diagonally towards the left, after that cart track turns right and after few minutes brings us to the road which leads towards Menina planina, and we follow it to the left and then we quickly get to a marked crossroad, where we notice the first signposts by the path.
From the mentioned crossroad, we continue on the left road in the direction of the mountain hut Dom na Menini planini over Oseke and the peak Drč (right Biba planina and Dom na Menini planini over Biba planina). The road which is further ascending diagonally, quickly brings us into a lane of a forest, and after few minutes we leave it and we pass on a panoramic grassy slope, from which a view opens up, which in good weather reaches all the way to Bjelolasica and Snežnik. When on the left side grazing fence ends, from the left joins the cart track from Češnjice v Tuhinju, and we continue right on quite a steep cart track, on which we quickly get to the cottage Kovran, where the cart track turns a little to the left. Next follows a diagonal ascent towards the left, whereupon we get to a crossing, where in the direction of straight continues short path towards the nearby cottage, which is situated by the edge of larger mountain pasture, and we continue right and further we are ascending by the grazing fence. Higher, at the hayrack we continue second turn off right and we are still ascending by the grazing fence, and from the path a nice view opens up towards Kum. After few minutes of a steep ascent we cross a grazing fence, cart track which widens also flattens. We continue on a wider cart track which continues among pastures, and in doing so it crosses more fences, which are situated on a cart track. A little further, by the path, we notice even some old blazes, and after them we join worse road which we follow upwards. After about a minute of additional walking, we reach a wider road, and we follow it left in the direction of Tuhinj (right Biba planina). On wider road we walk few minutes, and then at the beginning of the left turn we continue slightly right on the forest road, on which we are moderately ascending through the forest. When the road brings us out of the forest we get to Česenska poljana, where the road changes into a cart track, and in a gentle descent it brings us to a crossing, where we join the marked path Golice - Dom na Menini planini.
We follow the mentioned path to the right, and further at some crossings we follow the blazes. When higher forest again gets thinner we get to a marked crossing, where the path splits into two parts. The right path leads on Vivodnik, and left mentioned peak bypasses and leads directly to the mountain hut Dom na Menini planini. We continue on the right path, on which with occasional views we quickly get to the highest peak of Menina planina, where there stands a smaller wooden lookout tower.
On the other side of the peak as is a lookout tower, more precisely near the inscription box, we will notice the beginning of the marked path which starts descending towards the northeast. The path then turns a little towards the left, where it crosses a lane of a forest and then it flattens and in a gentle ascent brings us to a marked crossing, where from the left joins the path, which bypasses the peak Vivodnik. We continue straight into a lane of a forest and then the path starts considerably descending towards the mountain hut Dom na Menini planini, which we already see in front of us, and we reach it after few minutes of additional walking.
