From Kropa, first follow the signposts for Jamnik, which lead to the left from the car park/children's playground up along a cart track and past the Church of the Mother of God. The path gradually leads upwards before reaching a junction, where you continue to the right in the direction of Jamnik. Walk along the pleasant cart track that ascends gently. After two kilometres, when the track leads slightly to the left, you should continue along the forest path upwards and will soon reach the main Kropa – Jamnik road. Here the path to Jamnik turns left and runs along the edge of the main road, but you should instead cross the main road and follow the markers and signposts for the Vodiška planina mountain pasture (in places marked as Vodice).
The path ascends with hairpin bends further through the forest. On reaching a junction join the path that leads to the Vodiška planina mountain pasture from the direction of Jamnik. From here, continue straight ahead and keep to the right at all intersections. At several places the path approaches the edge of the Kropa mountains. The Zidana skala viewpoint, where there is a bench, offers the most beautiful views and is the ideal place to take a breather.
From the Zidana skala viewpoint continue upwards for a few more minutes to reach the highest point of the path before gradually descending towards the Vodiška planina mountain pasture, which you will reach after cca. 7 kilometres from the start of the hike.
From the Vodiška planina mountain pasture and the Partizanski dom mountain hut, which is open year round for refreshments, continue past the linden tree and then along the left edge of the pasture towards Kamna Gorica. At the end of the pasture, turn right onto a forest path that leads to Kropa. Slightly lower you will reach another crossroads, from where two paths lead to Kropa. Choose either of the paths, both of which lead down to Kropa and St. Lenart's church.
At the church look for the road that leads down to the right of the church. The road joins the main Kropa - Jamnik road near the Vigenjc Vice foundry. Turn left and walk past the picturesque ironworkers' houses to reach the main square. From the square, cross the stone bridge over the Kroparica stream, walk past the Iron Forging Museum and return to the car park.
