Further, we drive through the valley of Soča, on the main road, we drive to the settlement Plave, where at the crossroad, where a road branches off to the right in Paljevo there is the beginning of the described path. Because by the starting point, there aren't any parking spots, we have to park somewhere else, best on some appropriate place by the road before or after the settlement, or on the other side of the river Soča near the church or somewhere on the periphery of the village.

Path description:
From settlement Plave we continue on the asphalt road in the direction of Paljevo. Path at first leads past few houses, and then it quickly brings us to the left hairpin turn, where on a smaller building there is NOB monument. We continue on quite a panoramic road, and past the bench it brings us to the right hairpin turn, where in the direction of straight continues footpath on Prižnica (survey point 383), and we continue right, further on the road. Further, we for some time cross the slopes towards the right, and then a little after the crossing of a torrent stream in a zig zag road turns sharply left. From the road, on which we still walk a nice view opens up towards Korada and Prižnica. And when the road from slopes almost passes on more plain terrain, on the right side we notice a cart track and next to it unofficial signs for Kuk (signs for Kuk are made with a spray).
Path ahead runs through the forest, and it leads us past several crossings, where we follow the signs for Kuk or dots on the trees. On parts a little more overgrown path, which is for most of the time moderately ascending, higher entirely flattens, and then it gradually turns a little to the right, where it starts ascending steeper and steeper. Next follows few minutes of a steep ascent, and then the path brings us below the forested ridge, where we continue towards the left. Follows few minutes of easy walking, which runs right below the ridge and then the path brings us out of the forest on panoramic airfield of Kuk, where there is also a smaller cottage.
Further a better beaten path goes left from the cottage and continues diagonally below the summit of Kuk. At the spot, where we get very close to the top of Kuk, we can leave the footpath and in a minute we ascend on a forested Kuk, otherwise we continue on the path which starts descending diagonally. After few minutes of diagonal descent we get to a macadam road which we reach right at the marked crossing.
From the crossing, the path branches off sharply to the left towards the settlement Paljevo, to the right continues the road on which we can get to the settlement Zagora and Zagomila, and we continue straight past the monument, which was placed in June 1916 to commandant of 1st mountain brigade FML Guido Novak von Arienti. Behind the monument, the road turns a little to the left, and after few minutes brings us to a hamlet Vodice. After Vodice we leave the road and we continue right in the direction of a monument (caption on a sign). Path ahead turns a little more to the right and it brings us out of the forest on a grassy meadow, where we continue by the outer edge of the grazing fence. With nice views on surrounding hills and Julian Alps, in few minutes we return in the forest. The path continues through the forest and is mostly only gently ascending, and then it flattens even more and it brings us to a forest road which we reach near the information boards.
At the information boards to the left continues the forest road which leads towards the saddle Preški vrh, a little further and then to the right leads the path towards the nearby monument Pri orlih, and on a worse road ahead, the path continues towards the summit of Vodice and mausoleum on the top. From the information boards to the top of Vodice there are only about 2 minutes of walking.
