Access to starting point:
A) From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Vodice, and then we continue driving to a first traffic light crossroad in Vodice, where we continue left in the direction of Cerklje na Gorenjskem and Brnik. When we get to the main roundabout in Spodnji Brnik we continue driving in the direction of Cerklje and ski slope Krvavec. At the end of the settlement Cerklje na Gorenjskem we leave the main road which continues towards Velesovo and Visoko and we continue driving slightly right on a road in the direction of the ski slope Krvavec. Further, we get to the village Grad, where signs for settlement Ambrož pod Krvavcem point us to the right on a steep asphalt road (straight bottom station of the cable car on Krvavec and Štefanja Gora). When the steepness on a steep road decreases a little, we will get to a crossroad, where we continue left in the direction of the settlement Ambrož pod Krvavcem (straight settlement Ravne, Apno and Šenturška Gora). A little further, the road for some time descends a little and then it is ascending through occasionally quite panoramic slopes. Higher, we get to Ambrož pod Krvavcem, where on the left side we bypass church of St. Ambrož and tourist farm Pr Ambružarju. From the tourist farm ahead road passes into the forest and is ascending through it all the way to the mountain pasture Jezerca, where there is a large parking lot. The road here flattens and it turns left and about 500 meters ahead brings us to a crossroad, where we continue right in the direction of the mountain pasture Kriška planina (straight upper station of the cable car and mountain hut Planinski dom on Gospincu). Next follows only a short steep ascent and we get to the parking lot by the edge of the mountain pasture Kriška planina. Now the road from the mountain pasture Jezerca to Kriška planina is closed for public traffic, this extends the path for approximately 15 minutes. B) From highway Jesenice - Ljubljana we go to the exit Kranj - east, and then we continue driving towards Brnik, Komenda and Mengeš. When we get to the main roundabout in Spodnji Brnik we continue driving in the direction of Cerklje and ski slope Krvavec. At the end of the settlement Cerklje na Gorenjskem we leave the main road which continues towards Velesovo and Visoko and we continue driving slightly right on a road in the direction of the ski slope Krvavec. Further, we get to the village Grad, where signs for settlement Ambrož pod Krvavcem point us to the right on a steep asphalt road (straight bottom station of the cable car on Krvavec and Štefanja Gora). When the steepness on a steep road decreases a little, we will get to a crossroad, where we continue left in the direction of the settlement Ambrož pod Krvavcem (straight settlement Ravne, Apno and Šenturška Gora). A little further, the road for some time descends a little and then it is ascending through occasionally quite panoramic slopes. Higher, we get to Ambrož pod Krvavcem, where on the left side we bypass church of St. Ambrož and tourist farm Pr Ambružarju.

Next follows only a short steep ascent and we get to the parking lot by the edge of the mountain pasture Kriška planina. Now the road from the mountain pasture Jezerca to Kriška planina is closed for public traffic, this extends the path for approximately 15 minutes.
Path description:
At the end of the parking lot, where the road turns to the left, and the road branches off to the right towards the nearby mountain pasture Jezerca, we will notice red hiking signposts, which point us straight on a marked footpath in the direction of Kriška planina, Vrh Korena, Košutna, Kompotela and Mokrica, which ascends through pastures of the already mentioned mountain pasture. After a short ascent, we reach the cart track, and we follow it to the left, where we cross slopes of Križišče (1658 meters). Cart track, on which we walk quickly splits into two parts, and we continue straight on the lower. For some time a nice view opens up towards Kranj, Škofjeloško hribovje and Storžič, and then the path starts lightly descending. Next follows few minutes of walking, and then we get to the parking lot by the lower part of the mountain pasture Kriška planina. From the parking lot, we continue in the direction of the mountain pasture Koren and we continue on a worse macadam road which goes through the underpass below ski track. The marked path after the underpass from the road goes slightly left, so that it continues parallel with the road by some sort of spruce tree-line. When we will after few minutes of a light ascent come on the eastern edge of the mountain pasture Kriška planina, where there is a smaller watering place for animals, we continue slightly left over a grazing fence (right mountain pasture Osredek and Kamniški vrh), but in light ascent we still continue in approximately same direction. The path ahead from the mountain pasture passes on little steeper slopes of Krvavec, over which we diagonally ascend to the vantage point, from which a nice view opens up towards Kržišče (Pokovše), ridge Kamniški vrh, valley of Korošica, Velika planina and towards the nearby Košutna and Veliki Zvoh. From the vantage point, which is situated few steps right from the path, we start steeply descending towards the hunting cottage above the valley Korošica. When descent stops and the path continues without large changes in altitude, we will come on visible, but badly marked crossing, where the path branches off to the right towards before mentioned hunting cottage and forward towards the valley Korošica and valley Kamniška Bistrica. At the mentioned crossing, we continue slightly left and we start slightly ascending through the forest. The path out of the forest quickly passes among bushes and dwarf pines, and then over a grazing fence gradually brings us to the next unmarked crossing, which is situated in the middle of sharp right turn. From the mentioned hairpin turn in the direction of straight continues unmarked footpath towards the saddle Razor (saddle between Krvavec and Veliki Zvoh), and we continue right on still marked path. Next follows a short diagonal ascent and the path brings us on the south part of the mountain pasture Koren, from where a nice view opens up on the main part of the mountain pasture and surrounding peaks. From south part of the mountain pasture follows a short descent to the near shepherd hut, which is situated in the main part of the mountain pasture Koren. Here at the cottage slightly right (direction southeast) path, which runs on the mountain pasture Planina Košutna branches off. The path at first crosses slopes almost horizontal, and then it brings us on technically demanding spot. The path steeply ascends over a shorter rocky jump, where we get help from renovated safety catches. The path then flattens and past a cross brings us to the mountain pasture Planina Košutna, where there stands a chapel and shepherd hut. From the mountain pasture, we continue on a poorly beaten footpath which goes on the left side of the chapel into dwarf pines (blazes are renovated). The path ahead is slightly ascending on a moderately steep and panoramic slope of Košutna. And when the path entirely flattens path branches off to the right to the summit of Košutna, which is newly marked. This path we then follow all the way to peak which we reach after 15 minutes of additional walking. The path was renovated on 29/6/2019 and it is nicely passable. From the top of Košutna then on renovated mountain path we go in the direction of Kompotela (new blazes and cleared path). We follow the path to the top of Kompotela, where at the signposts we go right towards Mokrica, and left there is the peak Kompotela (2 min). 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. This part of the path was also renovated on 29/6/2019.
PP: In fog the orientation can be very difficult mainly from the mountain pasture Koren ahead. I wish you safe walking.
