Access to the starting point:
From the motorway Ljubljana - Jesenice take the exit Kranj - East and follow the road towards Jezersko. From the Kanonir Inn, continue for another kilometre to the signposts. Here, turn left towards the signs for Krtina Hospital. Follow the road until you reach a large parking lot with a no further driving sign.
Path description:
From the parking lot, continue along the road along which you parked and after only a few dozen metres you will come across a barrier. Soon after, the road makes a sharp right turn and leads to a crossroads. Take the road to the left towards the Krtina Hospital. The road, which climbs moderately, takes you over a bridge and out of the wods beyond. Here, to, the right-hand path to the hospital branches off, and we continue along the road, which leads us in a few serpentines to the top of a grassy slope. The road, which then goes back into the forest, continues to climb and after an hour and a half's walk leads us to a larger clearing on which stands the Stanič hunting lodge.
From the hut we continue on the road, which soon leads us to a crossroads. Continue along the right-hand road, which is getting worse. After a 30-minute walk from the hunting lodge, it leads us to the ruins (the JNA caravan) at the end of the road.
From here we continue between the two ruins. The path goes into the forest and climbs gently along a beautiful path. After a good ten minutes, this path leads to an unmarked crossroads, where you turn right onto the path above. The path then soon leaves the wods onto steep grassy slopes. The path then crosses these slopes in the lower part and leads us to an unmarked valley. There are two paths ahead. Bear right along the bottom of the valley to a small saddle. At the saddle, turn left and continue along the border ridge. When the path passes out of the forest on the top slope of Mali Pečovnik, a beautiful view opens up. In a few steps you can climb to the top of Maly Pečovnik.
The way forward is initially slightly downhill and then in a slight ascent reaches the scenic peak (Veliki Pečovnik).
From the top of Velika Pečovnik continue along the ridge to the north. After a short descent, the path leads to a meadow which begins to climb gently. At the end of the meadow the path turns slightly right and climbs over a short steep jump. The path continues between dwarf pines still following the boundary ridge. In summer days, care is also needed here because of snakes. There are quite a lot of them here. The path continues to climb through dwarf pines up to the summit where the sign for the national border stands. Parking - hunting lodge 1:30, hunting lodge - ruins 30 minutes, ruins - Veliki Pečovnik 45 minutes, Veliki Pečovnik - Plešivec 45 minutes.

Discussion about the trail Smrečje - Plešivec (by road)

Lep izlet pozimi priporočljiv s turnimi smučmi, saj je po travnikih in gozdnih cestah hitro dovolj snega, spust pa ni prehud. Kot se lepo vidi iz fotografij so čudoviti razgledi na Grintovce iz jezerske strani. Izlet za vse ljubitelje samotnih poti,saj razen v gobarski sezoni ni kaj prida obiskovalcev. živjo ToneK

Kakšne so pa sedaj razmere. Je dovolj snega za turno smuko. Hvala, Igor
