Access to the starting point:
From the Ljubljana - Jesenice motorway, take the Ljubelj exit and follow the road towards the border crossing. Leave the main road at the point where the signs for "Camping and Podljubelj" point to the right. After leaving the main road, after a few metres you will come to a crossroads where you turn left in the direction of "Kofce". Continue through the village on a slightly ascending road and then turn right in the direction of "Matizovec and Kofce". Follow this sometimes slightly narrower road, which is asphalted in the lower part, to a large marked parking area, about 150 metres below the Matizovec farm.
Path description:
From the large free parking lot, continue along the macadam road, which will take you to Matizovec Farm in about 20 minutes.
From Matizovec, continue along the worse road in the route Dom na Kofcah , following the signs carefully at a few crossroads. After a few minutes of walking on the worse road or cart track, the signs direct us to a steep footpath which first ascends crosswise to the left, then passes onto a wooded ridge, where it turns slightly to the right. Continue along the steep mountain path, which crosses the cart track at a higher level and gradually flattens out behind it. Just a little further on, the forest thins out and the waymarked path turns right into the forest and joins cart track a little higher up, which climbs transversely to the right. Cart track turns left higher up, and the marked path from Kala joins us from the right.
From the crossroads onwards the forest ends, and the increasingly scenic route leads us within 5 minutes of further walking to Dom na Kofcah .
From Dom na Kofcah continue right in the direction of mountain pasture Šija. The path first crosses the slopes to the east in a gentle descent, then joins the wide cart tracks, which leads out of the forest onto the mountain pasture Ilovica. The path continues to climb gently and after a few more minutes of easy walking leads to Zavetišče na planini Šija.
From the Shelter at mountain pasture Šija we continue on the macadam road, which after a few metres leads us to a marked crossroads where the unmarked path leading to Kladivo and the old border path crossing the southern slopes of Košuta branches slightly to the left. Continue along the road, which turns slightly to the right a little further on, and then leads to a side ridge, where it turns to the left (here we have a nice view to the south). From the longer left turn onwards, the road starts to descend more steeply, and we continue along it to the start of the mountain pasture Pungrat. Here we leave the road and walk across a folded bumpy meadow to the shepherd's hut at mountain pasture Pungrat in a few minutes.
From the hut continue along the marked path in the direction of Dolga njiva (left Škrbina and Veliko Kladivo) and initially continue the ascent along the folded cart track, which ends a little higher up. Continue along a less visible path, which initially continues over bumpy meadows. Higher up, the aforementioned border path joins almost imperceptibly from the left, and we continue straight on to a nearby pasture fence. Cross the fence and follow mountain pasture Pungrat to pasture Tegoška planina. Continue along the upper side of the upper part of Tegoška planina pasture areas, then the trail turns slightly to the right and leads past a water trough into dense forest. There is a short crossing through the forest and then a climb up to the Kisovec ridge. From here, descend a few steps to a small saddle where you cross a grazing fence. The path ahead takes you to cart track, after which you cross a larger clearing. On the other side of the clearing, the path returns to the forest, through which it begins to descend. After a short descent, an unmarked path (marked with arrows) from the shepherd's hut at Tegoška planina joins us from the right, and we continue to the left, crossing the slopes of Košuta to the east to the north-east. We follow the path, which occasionally opens up some views of the surrounding peaks, to a marked crossroads where the marked path to Košutnikov turn branches off to the left. At this crossroads, continue straight ahead on the lower right-hand path, which descends in a few minutes to the nearby forest road. Once on the road, follow it to the left, and in a few steps you will reach the pasture at mountain pasture Lower Dolga njiva.
Continue on mountain pasture up the middle of which is a wide dirt track which, after a good 15 minute walk, leads out of the forest to mountain pasture Zgornja Dolga njiva.
The steepness of the path, which has been moderate until now, eases and the path soon leads us through a beautiful grassy area to the central part of mountain pasture, where the markings end. Continue along the gently ascending path, which runs alongside a small but very distinct torrential gully. A little further on, the unmarked path splits into two parts.
Continue slightly to the right (Tolsta Košuta on the left) along the path which ascends a little further to the border ridge. Grebenc, a little further on, turns left, and the path first descends from the summit, and then leads us along and along the ridge to the top of Mala Košuta in a few minutes of scenic walking.
