Access to starting point:
From Tolmin we drive towards Kobarid or vice versa, but only to a spot, where signs for Kamno point us to the right (from the direction Kobarid left) over a bridge. A relatively narrow and ascending road we then follow in the direction of village Vrsno and higher Krn. From the village Krn we continue in the direction of the mountain hut Koča na planini Kuhinja. When we get to a large parking lot, where slightly left the road continues towards the mountain hut Koča na planini Kuhinja, we park on a large parking lot.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we go on the left bottom road in the direction of the mountain hut Koča na planini Kuhinja. The path at first leads on the road which crosses a lane of thin forest and then splits into two parts.
The right path bypasses the mountain hut Koča na planini Kuhinja and is a little shorter, and left which continues on the road leads past the already mentioned mountain hut.
A little above the mountain hut both paths join again, and we continue the ascent on a gently sloping path in the direction of Krn. The path ahead is at first gently, after that occasionally more steeply ascending on grassy slopes, which are fenced with grazing fences. The path which few times crosses a bad mountain road after approximately 40 minutes of walking, it brings us to an old military hamlet on the mountain pasture Slapnik.
The path ahead few more times crosses a road, after that joins the path from the end of the road (mountain pasture Zaslap). The path then in a moderate ascent on grassy slopes crosses a little to the right, and then again to the left to an unmarked crossing on an area named Leger. We continue straight to southwestern ridge of Krn (path right goes on notch Krnska škrbina). When the path brings us on the ridge, a nice view opens up on Matajur and Stol and valley of river Soča. A wide path is then ascending by the ridge in hairpin turns. We are getting closer to the cottage Gomiščkovo zavetišče on Krn, but to there we still have quite some walking. In the last part of the ascent to the cottage, the path is becoming more and more rocky but still very wide.
From the cottage, we continue in the direction of Krn which we reach after ten minutes of walking on the upper rocky slope of the mountain.
On the way: Koča na planini Kuhinja mountain hut (1002m), Planina Slapnik (1250m), Gomiščkovo zavetišče na Krnu mountain hut (2182m)
