Destination

mountain pasture Zajavornik

Turn-by-turn directions

The route starts immediately at the beginning of Rudno Polje on the right hand side by the car park. The route takes you immediately through the spruce forest, you just need to follow the signs on the trees. Then you come to a crossroads where you turn right. The track climbs a little and then there is a long descent until you reach the Zajavornik mountain pasture. The route on the mountain pasture itself is designed to go around the whole Zajavornik area. Once you have completed the full circuit, return along the parallel track back towards Rudné Polje. The route back has some longer climbs up to Rudne Polje where the route ends.
