Access to starting point:
From Mozirje we drive towards the valley Logarska dolina, but only to the village Struge (village between Ljubno and Luče), where signs for cave Snežna jama on Raduha point us to the right on a narrower and ascending road. The mentioned road which has few crossroad we follow in the direction of Snežna jama and mountain hut Koča na Loki (crossroads are well marked). After 16 km (from that 9 km macadam) of driving from the spot, when we left the main road we come to the starting point, where we park near the smaller crossroad (by the crossroad there are signposts for mountain hut Koča na Loki).
Path description:
By the parking lot we notice hiking signposts for mountain hut Koča na Loki and Raduha, which point us on a rough forest road which ascends through a lane of a forest. Already after few 10 strides of walking, we step out of the forest on the bottom part of the mountain pasture Loka. We continue the ascent on a relatively steep road, on which in few minutes we ascend to the hut Koča na Loki.
From the mountain hut, we continue slightly right on a marked path in the direction of saddle Durce (slightly left Raduha, right Smrekovec and Travnik). Further, at first we are gently ascending on the right side of the ditch (on the left side of the ditch runs the path on Raduha) on the path, that gradually starts to ascend steeper. After approximately 10 minutes of walking from the mountain hut, the path brings us on less noticeably crossing, where we continue sharply right on a poorly visible path (straight Durce). After few steps of additional walking, we will notice hiking signposts on a tree with signs Lanež and Durce through Lanež, which point us to the left upwards on a steep, marked pathless terrain (in fog, the orientation is very demanding). After few minutes of ascent over steep grassy slope, "path" brings us to a grazing fence, where we continue left. Only few steps ahead, a marked path crosses the mentioned fence and then turns a little towards the left (here the footpath is already better visible).
We continue the ascent on scenic path, which past a watering-place for animals brings us into a smaller valley between Lanež and Jelovec. A moderately steep path, which ahead runs through a pleasant small valley, soon brings us on a small indistinct saddle between the before mentioned peaks.
Here we go right and we continue on a grassy slope to a smaller saddle on the south side of Jelovec. From here we continue left and we cross slopes on the right (eastern) side of the ridge. Narrow footpath further runs through dwarf pines and on some spots, it also slightly descends. Soon we will notice the peak in front of us on which stands a cross. The path continues to run through dwarf pines and soon brings us on a peak with a beautiful view.
The starting point - Koča na Loki 0:15, Koča na Loki - Jelovec 1:05.
