Path description:
From the starting point, we continue on a wide tourist path in the direction towards the waterfall Podkanjski slap and Obir. At first, we ascend in few hairpin turns, and after a short panoramic part, the path passes into the forest and narrows a little. After few minutes of additional walking from the wide path to the right, a marked path branches off on Obir, and we continue straight and after a minute of additional walking, we get to a settled viewpoint on waterfall Podkanjski slap.
From the viewpoint, we return to the last crossing, and then we continue on a marked path towards Obir. From the spot, where we leave a wide tourist path, we start steeply ascending, and on steeper spots we get with help from stairs and in some parts steel cables (in dry undemanding). After few minutes steepness of the slope decreases and the path turns right, where at first crosses a cart track, and a little further brings us to a forest road which we follow to the left. We walk on the road to the right turn, at the beginning of which in the direction of straight continues a marked footpath. Further, we few times cross the forest road, on which occasionally runs the path. Next follows a little longer ascent through the forest, where on a smaller plain we get to a marked crossing.
From the crossing, we continue on the left path (right mountain pasture Jagovčeva planina, and from there possible ascent on Mali Obir, or descent to Borovnica dammed lake), which continues through a small valley, a little higher we return on the road which we follow to the left and then we quickly get to an abandoned mountain pasture Hofovška planina.
Above the mountain pasture we finally leave the road, and we are further ascending on an increasingly steep path. We higher reach a forested ridge, where from the left joins the path from the village Reberca / Reehberg.
We continue right on a quite gently sloping path, which a little ahead crosses a grazing fence, and then on an ample pastures it starts vanishing. Through the pasture we carefully follow otherwise rare signs, and when we return in the forest, we join a better beaten path which leads from or past the mountain hut Kapelška koča / Eisenkappler Hütte.
We continue in the direction of Obir and in few hairpin turns we ascend above the treeline. Next follows some easy walking and the path brings us on an indistinct peak Kraguljše, from where a beautiful view opens up.
Further gently sloping path at first leads past a smaller swamp, and then gradually starts moderately ascending. Higher, the path becomes a little steeper and with nice views on surrounding mountains and valleys brings us to the ruins of former mountain hut Rainer Schutz Hütte, which is situated at 2040 meters. From the ruins we in few minutes ascend on the main ridge of Obir, where we continue right (left Kravji vrh and saddle Šajda). Next follows the ascent a little right from the ridge and we stick to a marked path and we don't walk on shortcuts, that is also pointed out by the caption in German language. A moderately steep path, then in few minutes of additional walking, it brings us on Ojstrc, the highest peak of Obir.
