Access to starting point:

We drive to Žirovnica and from now on we follow a road going through valley upwards Stol. A road going towards Valvasorjev dom pod Stolom branches to left just before a lake. Road has a crossroads on 1000 metres height above sea level. We turn left there. We keep driving towards Valvasorjev dom. We come to a crossroads 200 metres before it. We continue driving on a left lower road. Road then crosses slopes towards west and it ascends to Potoška planina (mountain pasture) through some sharp turns. We continue driving on a road going above the mountain pasture towards west. A cart track towards Valvasorjev dom branches to right. We must pay attention now. As soon as the road starts descending we can notice a small brook on the right side of the road. This brook is called Urbas. We park here on an appropriate parking place.

Path description:

A footpath starts at the spring. It is a little bit harder to follow at the beginning. It goes through a forest at first and rises slightly. After 15 minutes of walking it start rising steeply. If went on this trip on hot day a nice shadow will cool us. Forest is becoming rarer and rarer and the path brings us to a dwarf pine. We can feel a sultry here if we went on a way too late. Path is turning towards is more and more and brings us to grassy slopes of Belščica. A temporary bivouac stands here and a pastoral house just couple of metres ahead. We continue walking from bivouac on easier pathless country upwards towards North. We come to a marked way after 20 minutes of walking. We orient towards right here and we follow the path crossing Southwest slopes towards East. We better be careful after 20 minutes of walking because just under the saddle an unmarked path branches to left, going to the top of Vajnež. Branch is marked! Only 15 minutes of walking on a grassy country are left to the top.

On the way: Bivak na Belščici (1750m)
