VELIKA ZAKA - MALA OSOJNICA - OJSTRICA - VELIKA ZAKA
At the rim of a grassland along the road to Velika Zaka and close to the rowing tower there is a signpost leading you upwards through the deciduous forest. After a couple of minutes, you reach an unpaved path where you descend several metres and cross a larger grassland behind a house, ascending in the steep areas of Mala Osojnica covered by forest. At the crossroads continue on a steep slope upwards to a rocky divider and then on to the steel steps until you get to the edge of a smaller plateau. Follow the trail on the left edge of the plateau towards the south. Take a left turn at all the crossroads and you will eventually reach the viewpoint on Mala Osojnica. The viewpoint is secured with a steel fence and there is a bench, info board and a signpost. Take a few steps upwards onto the path on the right edge of the plateau until you reach the second viewpoint above Bohinjska Bela. The path will take you to a valley and from there to a saddle between Mala and Velika Osojnica (signpost). Continue on this path/forest track downwards in the direction of Zaka. At the southern foothill of Ojstrica take a left turn onto a narrow, steep trail leading to the peak of Ojstrica. On the way back, take the same path until you reach a wide forest track, go across the grassland and take a left turn through the forest where you end up in Velika Zaka.
