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 crossroad, we continue right (left Vivodnik and Dom na Menini planini - path over Oseke and the peak Drč) in the direction of the mountain pasture Biba planina and mountain hut Dom na Menini planini - path over Biba planina.
Further, we walk on the road which leads towards Menina planina, after that when on the left side of the road, we notice a wooden cross, we get to more distinct right turn. At the end of the turn, we go left, on a cart track which is diagonally ascending towards the left, and in doing so runs a little above the valley Krajna dolina. After few minutes, we step out of the forest, where we cross older grazing fence, and immediately behind it we continue right, by the fence upwards, where on one of the trees we notice one of rare also quite faded blazes by the path. About a minute higher, we cross another cart track and we continue light ascent on the right side of grazing fence. We continue on an old cart track which quickly splits into two parts. We continue on the right, even though by left we notice an old blaze, on which we quickly reach a worse road. When we step on the road, we continue sharply left, after that on two nearby crossings both times right, first time on wider, second time on a worse cart track. Further, we notice some old blazes, and then we go slightly left, on a cart track which brings us to the edge of the forest, where the path leads past a watering-place for animals. Next follows crossing of shorter lane of a forest, where the path leads over a grazing fence. When we step out of the forest we continue straight or slightly right, where the path brings us to open stable. after stable we continue slightly right, on the path which leads us on a pleasant grassy terrain. Soon on a nearby tree we notice signs for Biba, which point us to the left. We short time continue on a slope a little towards the right, and then we get to a grazing fence, by which we are then with increasingly beautiful views ascending relatively steeply to a nearby road. When we step on the road few steps we follow it to the left and then signs for mountain hut on Biba planina point us to the right, on a footpath on which we quickly get to the mentioned mountain hut.
Cottage on Biba planina and nearby chapel of St. Anton we bypass on the right side, after that behind the chapel we continue a little to the left, on an easy to follow footpath, which continues over pastures. The path ahead runs at first slightly upwards, and in doing so leads us past more watering places, stone fences and grazing fences. Next follows few minutes of crossing, and then also a short descent to a macadam road which we follow to the right. While walking on the road, we leave municipality Kamnik, after that marked path from the road turns slightly to the left, where leads us above bigger watering place. When after few minutes we again step on the road, we only cross it and we at first continue by the edge of the forest and then through gentle pastures. Doesn't lasts long, when we again step on the road, and then the path with exception of few short sections continues on the road all the way to the mountain hut Dom na Menini planini, which is situated few 10 strides left from the road (right from the road is situated chapel).
From the hut, we continue on a marked path in the direction of Vivodnik. After a few 10 strides of easy walking, the path for a short time steeply ascends, and then it flattens and brings us on a larger grassy slope, where we run into the signpost with the caption "Vivodnik - krožna pot (circular path)". We continue slightly left (on the right path we can return) on a relatively gently sloping path, which quickly brings us in a short lane of a forest. Here the path for a short time ascends again, and then it brings us out of the forest, where in front of us we already notice a lookout tower on Vivodnik, which we reach after few steps of additional walking.
