Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Lesce, where at the roundabout, we go on the old road in the direction of Žirovnica and Jesenice. After few km of driving, we drive past a crossroad, where the road branches off to the right in Žirovnica. When we drive past the viaduct Završnik, we notice on the right side a turn off, on which we go (we turn sharply right). Immediately we run into a smaller crossroad, where we go left, and at the next (after approx 50 meters) right, in the direction of Završnik. After a short descent, the road for some time ascends a little, after that flattens, and it brings us to the spot, where the macadam branches off to the left towards the mountain hut Valvasorjev dom. Only a little further, on the right we notice a large parking lot, which is situated by the beginning of an artificial lake Završnik. Here is our starting point.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we go over a concrete bridge, which crosses the lake. On the other side, on the right we notice divided path, which runs into the forest. We go to the left (upper), on which we ascend towards the top of the ridge. The path quite quickly vanishes, and we go a little to the left towards the top, where we eventually run into relatively wide path which leads right towards the top of the ridge. When we get there, a view opens up on the other side, where there are Žirovnica and Moste, from where comes also the path from the south side. We turn left (towards the east), on a pleasant, beaten footpath, on a ridge towards Mali vrh. Soon a view opens up back towards Jesenice on the west, and on the left into a valley we can partly see lake in Završnica.
At the signposts, we continue straight towards Gosjak (right Sveti Lovrenc). And soon the path from the top of Mali vrh descends a little and then for some time flattens. On the right edge of the ridge there are occasionally nice viewpoints. On the left side of one of those we observe interesting cliffs (Peči), by which path on the right side leads further on the ridge towards the next summit of Gosjak. Before we ascend there, we run also into religious symbol (cross) and a bench on the left. Here is our path crossed by path from the valley, and we continue straight on the ridge, where we run into rocks, on which we climb a little and so at first on the left and after this also on the right side of the ridge we ascend to the summit of Gosjak, where we first time see Smokuški vrh a little closer. Later on the right we notice one more viewpoint with a bench, which is situated above Doslovče, a little further on the left a smaller cottage and after this also water catchment (here a wider path from Doslovče crosses Gosjak). We continue steeply uphill, right from water catchment, where we soon again run into rocks, on which we are partly in climbing ascending over so-called Golovec. We are on somehow narrowest part of the ridge. Steepness larger part of rocky ridge, while ascending on Golovec 2-3 times decreases only a little, and demanding and a panoramic path eventually for the last time steeply ascends towards Smokuški vrh, where at first we run into a nice bench with an inscription book, and after additional 15 min of walking, where the ridge already widens, we get also to our destination, - vantage point with "benches" on the upper part of the ridge.
At ascending and descending from Gosjak and Golovec, in wet there is a great risk of slipping!
