Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Lesce and follow the road ahead in the direction of Žirovnica and Jesenice. After few km of driving, we will get to a crossroad, where the road in Žirovnica and Moste branches off to the right (from the direction of Jesenice left). Only few meters ahead in the next crossroad, we turn left in Moste (right Žirovnica). Further, we drive past a monument to fallen soldiers, where the road starts ascending on a hill below the railway track. On top of the slope, we turn right (at the sign Vila Karin), and then drive towards the lake Završniško jezero and Valvasorjev dom. The road then flattens and it brings us to a crossroad, where the road to Valvasorjeve dom branches off to the left. We go on the mentioned road (straight mountain hut Koča pri izviru Završnice), that starts to at first gently, and then steeper and steeper ascending on an occasionally quite rough road (the most steep parts are paved with asphalt). Higher, the road brings us to a little bigger crossroad, where we continue left in the direction of Potoška planina (right Doslovška planina). The road then flattens and a little further brings us to the next crossing, where a road towards the mountain hut Valvasorjev dom branches off to the right, and we continue on the left bottom road which then for quite some time continues without large changes in altitude. The road then leads us past a turn-off of the path on Ajdna and then starts ascending steeper on an occasionally quite rough road. The road then again flattens and past the mountain pasture Potoška planina brings us to a well Urbas, near of which is few smaller parking spots.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we at first walk to a well Urbas, and here we notice a mountain sign for mountain pasture Belščica, which points us on at first a little harder to follow footpath. First 15 minutes of walking, the path only gently, and then it starts to ascend steeply through the forest. Higher the forest is becoming thinner and slowly passes into a lane of dwarf pines, and the path starts turning more and more towards the west. After a good hour of walking, we step on grassy slopes and the path after few additional strides, it brings us to bivouac on Belščica (emergency bivouac).
