Wow! For once a Slovene trail with no iron pegs - maybe there was one? - or cables or with a route that doesn't go straight up. The first thirty minutes don't count as you move up from Vr?ic Pass - 3 euro to park or use the summer bus up from Kranjska Gora - and you gain the Vratica pass at 1799 meters. From this small pass, take the path to the right dropping down slightly onto a pretty forested balcony with you immediate goal, the little peak of Slemenovica ?pica straight ahead. On the west side of the balcony, follow an unmarked but obvious trail rising up to the right. In true Slovene fashion, the trail gains you elevation now, but it is only a short section reaching into the pretty meadows of Sleme in no time whatsoever. Keep going until you reach the top of the little peak and the views open up in all directions. Way below is the Tamar Valley, Jalovec raising its mighty head at one end and the ski jumps of Planica are at the other. Look behind you and the grand north wall of the Mojvstroka towers. Northwards, mountains rise far away in southern Austria. The trail has been described as maybe one of the best in Slovenia - it certainly gives you maximum bang for your efforts. Weekends might not be the best time if you are looking for some solitude.
