Access to the starting point:
a) First drive to Kranjska Gora, then continue driving to Ratečeam. When you reach the roundabout near Rateč, take the exit towards Planica. After a few more climbs, you will arrive at a large parking lot next to the Nordic Centre Planica, where you will park in a pay parking lot. The price for cars is 2,5 EUR / day (September 2019).
b) Via Border crossing Rateče we drive into Slovenia, and then soon we turn right towards Planica. There is a bit of a climb and we arrive at a large parking lot next to the Nordic Centre Planica, where we park in the pay parking lot. The price for cars is 2,5 EUR / day (September 2019).
Path description:
From the parking lot, walk to the base of the aerodrome, where you will start climbing the stairs (not the metal ones).
(In case the stairway is closed, you can climb up to the jump-off point on the dirt road that starts in front of the first jumps. )
There is a steep climb up the right-hand side of the aerodrome, and at the RTV tower the path turns slightly to the right and transitions into the forest. A little higher up, you reach a dirt road, which you follow to the left (you can also follow the road that starts before the jumps), which quickly leads to the aerodrome's jump-off point.
Here, below the jump-off point, cross over to the other side of the aerodrome and start climbing the wooden steps again. After a few minutes of further steep climbing, we reach the top of the airstrip, where we have a nice view of the airstrip and Planica below us.
From the top of the airstrip, which can also be reached by chairlift, follow a wide path which ascends in a steep ascent to the right to the road leading out of Rateč.
When you reach the road, follow it to the left and walk along it for a few minutes or until it starts to descend towards Bele potok.
There is a small crossroads, from which you continue slightly right to cart track, which climbs parallel to the torrential graben of the White Brok. At a nearby crossroads, go straight ahead, and when cart track ends, go left onto a beaten track, along which there is a small cairn, and a red arrow on a tree. There is a cross-climb to the left, where you cross several torrents, including the main channel of the White Brok. Once the path is laid, there are a few more crossings, and then we join the hunting trail, which starts a little further on from the ski jumps in Planica.
Here you continue to the right and initially cross a few more ravines, but then, along the ravine descending from Glav, you begin to climb steeply in a series of switchbacks. Higher up, you reach a small cirque, where the trail transitions, and after a few 10 steps it turns left and climbs to the next crossroads, from which you continue to the left (to the right Vratica, Belopeška jezera and Mala Ponca). There is a bit of a gentle walk, then the path flattens out and turns slightly to the right. At this point, leave the Planica - Pokljuka trail and continue left on a fainter path that begins to climb towards the top of Glav (Ovčja strana on some maps). Follow this deteriorating track to the summit, a few minutes away, which offers a beautiful view.
