Access to the starting point:
First we drive to Kranjska Gora, then we continue driving to Ratečeam. At the junction where the road to Planica turns left and continues straight on towards Itali, turn right and drive into the centre of Rateč, where you can park in a suitable place.
Path description:
From the Rateče centre, follow the signs for the footpath to Tromejo. At first, follow the road through the village, and at the crossroads follow the signs for Tromejo. When the marked trail leaves the road at Rateče and continues right into the forest, we continue straight ahead along the road, which is no longer marked. A few steps further, at a small crossroads, we continue straight on, and then the road behind the "last" house turns into cart track, from which we get a nice view of Ratečee and Ciprnik. After crossing a strip of woods, you reach a pasture fence, and after it continue right and start climbing over a grassy cart track across a pasture. With fine views of Julian Alps, in a few minutes we reach the road leading from Rateče to Tromea, and we follow it to the left, but only a few steps along it. After a few steps, we see a gate on the right and a passage over another pasture fence, which we cross, and then a little to the right, towards the woods, we see, at first less well, but then more and more well, the traceable cart track. Follow cart track ascending cross-country with fine views, then cross the pasture fence once more and enter the woods. In the forest, almost imperceptibly cross the national border, then join the marked trail from Itali (in the descriptions, the starting point is Pri Jalnu / Fusine Laghi).
Continue ascending through the forest, crossing a few torrents, which are not difficult to cross. When you reach a road at a higher level, follow it to the right and continue climbing moderately for a few minutes. Just after the road dips or rolls over to the other side, the road leading to Cavalar / Monte Cavallar branches off to the left, and we continue straight ahead, following the road as it begins to descend gently. The road quickly leads us out of the forest, to the edge of a large meadow, where we can see the nearby Coppa.
After a short descent, the road to Maria Schnee below Gozman / Madonna della Neve (on the signpost Maria im Schnee) turns first to the left, and a few metres further on, the road to Monte Coppa (1497 m) turns to the right. In both cases, we continue straight on, and we follow the road a little lower, to the next crossroads, at which there is a water trough and a mountain signpost. Here we continue slightly to the right and past the bunker from the time of the Rapallo border, climb a little higher, to the place where the markers for Ofen (on the board German inscription Dreiländereck) direct us to the right on a moderately steep cart track, which we climb in a few minutes to the bivouac without boundaries (inscription on the bivouac - Senza Confini Hütte).
Before the bivouac, turn left and continue the ascent along the mulatier. At first, the mulatier is crossed several times by a footpath, which continues to the left of the mulatier. In a few longer serpentines, we climb below the Peć peak, where we are joined on the left by the aforementioned footpath, which is a few minutes shorter.
When the two paths merge, continue straight ahead, and then, when you emerge from the forest, go right and, in a few steps, reach Tromejo.
