Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Kranj - vzhod and follow the road ahead in the direction of Jezersko. From the inn Kanonir we drive further a good kilometer to signposts. Here we go left towards signs for hospital Krtina. We follow the road to a large parking lot at the sign that prohibits further driving.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we continue on the road by which we've parked and already after few ten meters, we run into the gate. The road soon after that makes a sharp right turn and it brings us to a crossing. We go to the left, the road towards the hospital Krtina. The road which is moderately ascending leads us over a bridge and behind it comes out of the forest. Here also to the right the path branches off towards hospital, and we continue on the road which in few hairpin turns brings us to the top of a grassy slope. The road which then goes again in the forest is still ascending and after an hour and a half of walking, it brings us to a larger clearing on which stands a hunting cottage Stanič.
From the cottage, we continue ahead on the road which soon brings us to a crossroad. We continue on the right road which is getting worse. And after 30 minutes of walking from the hunting cottage it brings us to ruins (JNA border building) at the end of the road.
From here we continue between the both ruins ahead. The path goes into the forest and it is slightly ascending on a nice footpath. This path after good ten minutes brings us to an unmarked crossing, where we continue right on the upper path. After that, the path soon passes out of the forest on steep grassy slopes. The path ahead in the lower part crosses the mentioned slopes and then it brings us into a small indistinct valley. From here further there are two paths. We go right on the bottom of a small valley to a small saddle. On the saddle, we go left and we continue on the border ridge. When the path passes out of the forest on the upper slope of Mali Pečovnik a beautiful view opens up. In few steps, we can ascend to the summit of Mali Pečovnik.
The path ahead at first slightly descends and then in a gentle ascent reaches panoramic peak (Veliki Pečovnik).
From the top of Veliki Pečovnik we go ahead on the ridge towards the north. After a short descent, the path brings us on a meadow, that starts slightly ascending. At the end of the meadow path turns a little right and it ascends over a shorter steep jump. The path ahead runs among dwarf pines still on the border ridge. In the summer days caution is also needed here because of the snakes. Because there are quite a lot of them here. The path ahead is ascending through dwarf pines all the way to the top on which there is a sign for national border.
