Access to starting point:
A) First, we drive to Kamnik, and then we continue driving towards Stahovica and mountain pass Črnivec. Few 100 meters before the mountain pass Črnivec we leave the main road which leads towards Gornji Grad and we continue driving sharply left in the direction of the mountain pass Volovljek (Kranjski Rak). From the mentioned mountain pass we continue straight (left road which leads on Velika planina, right Štajerski Rak) and start descending towards Luče. Lower the road flattens a little and brings us into a valley Podvolovljek. Further at first we drive past the turn-off of the road which leads into a valley of Lučka Bela, after that also past bar Pri Gamsu. After the bar, we need to pay attention, because only few 100 meters further road which leads towards the mountain pasture Podvežak and mountain pasture Ravne and farm Planinšek branches off to the left (by the spot, where we leave the main road, there is a road sign approximately 11 km). Further, we drive on at first still asphalt road which is then ascending towards the plateau Dleskovška planota. Higher, the road towards Planinšek branches off to the right, and here we continue on the left upper road which few 100 meters further from turn-off towards the farm Planinšek becomes a macadam, and a little further it brings us to the next crossroad, where we continue straight in the direction of the mountain pasture Ravne (left mountain pasture Podveža). Further a little rough road, we then follow to the beginning of the mountain pasture Ravne, where we park on an appropriate place by the road.
From the main road to the mountain pasture Ravne is approximately 10 km, of this approximately 4 km macadam.
B) First, we drive to Luče, and then we continue driving towards Kamnik. When by the road we notice a sign road which shows 10.5 km, we need to pay attention to the right turn off, because only a little further to the right a road towards the mountain pasture Podvežak and Ravne and farm Planinšek branches off. Further, we drive on at first still asphalt road which is then ascending towards the plateau Dleskovška planota. Higher, the road towards Planinšek branches off to the right, and here we continue on the left upper road which few 100 meters further from turn-off towards the farm Planinšek becomes a macadam, and a little further it brings us to the next crossroad, where we continue straight in the direction of the mountain pasture Ravne (left mountain pasture Podveža). Further a little rough road, we then follow to the beginning of the mountain pasture Ravne, where we park on an appropriate place by the road.
From the main road to the mountain pasture Ravne is approximately 10 km, of this approximately 4 km macadam.
Path description:
From the starting point through mountain pasture we walk to the shepherd hut, which we bypass on the right side, so that we continue in the direction of the mountain pasture Molička planina and mountain pasture Polšak (on the left side of the mountain hut leads the path over Dolga trata). Behind the mountain hut, the path is at first a little hard to follow, but we get help from blazes, and a little ahead we join the cart track which from the road on the mountain pasture Ravne branches off at the right turn.
When we step on the cart track, we continue left, on it we at first walk without large changes in altitude, and then we start gently to moderately ascending. After few minutes, we reach a small indistinct saddle between Dleskovec on the left and Smrekovec on the right. Here from the right joins the path from the end of the road, and we continue straight over a grazing fence. Behind the grazing fence follows a short crossing, and then we get to the next marked crossing, where we continue straight in the direction of the mountain pasture Polšak (left Korošica, Molička planina, and by the crossing are signs for mountain hut Lučka koča). Even though is turn off marked, the path further isn't marked anymore, exceptions are occasional unofficial signs with red line.
After a short initial ascent, the path flattens, and then it is for some time lightly descending, and further crosses slopes towards the right. When the crossing ends, we reach small indistinct valley, where the path towards the nearby hunting cottage branches off to the right, and we continue left and we are ascending through a small valley, where the path leads past the water catchment. Through a pleasant small valley, surrounded by thin larch forest we are slightly to moderately ascending, and after few minutes we reach the mountain pasture Polšak, in the middle of which there is a newer shepherd hut (old burned down).
From the mountain hut, we continue a little right (direction north), and then we return in a thin larch forest, and the path after few minutes brings us to wooden trough with water, where usually water runs very slowly, because it is a smaller source. During the light ascent also dwarf pines join the larches, and a little higher, on a smaller grassy plain we get to a crossing, where we continue on the left path (right path leads on Križevnik, and it is from the crossing distant approximately 30 minutes).
From here on the path turns a little more to the left, and larches by the path are getting replaced by dwarf pines, but the path is all the time easy to follow and passable. After a shorter traversing, we reach a grassy part, where there are piles of cutted dwarf pines and a clever smaller bench. From the mentioned part a nice view opens up towards Dleskovec, Veliki vrh and Velika Zelenica, and the path returns into a lane of dwarf pines, through which continues the crossing. After some time crossing ends, and the path starts steeply ascending and occasionally also vanishing, but with some attention we can still follow it. Higher, the path becomes on few shorter sections more rocky and gradually again less steep. When the path entirely flattens, to the right opens a relatively nice passage towards the summit of Molička peč, to which is good 10 minutes of ascent.
From the spot, when we leave a beaten path we ascend on a partly grassy slope, which is surrounded by dwarf pines, so we carefully follow the cairns and we are looking for passages, which are if we left the path on the right place relatively easy. When we reach the peak we are rewarded with a great view on mountains above Robanov kot.
