The trail starts from the pillar in front of the Tourist Office in Kranjska Gora. Take the Tičar Street (Tičarjeva ulica) and head towards the Hotel Lek. Turn right at the end of the parking lot behind the hotel, pass the tennis courts and continue towards a forest path, which later joins a trail crossing the slope. Turn left and continue towards Lake Jasna onto the path running parallel to the road to the Vršič Pass. Go past Lake Jasna and past the Mala Pišenca Valley. Continue onto the forest path which steeply ascends after it crosses the Pišenca River. The path continues under the power supply line towards the former pension Erika. When arriving at Erika take trails crossing pastures and leading through the wood. Once or twice you return back onto the road leading up to the Vršič Pass, but shortly after you go into the woods again. Shortcuts lead you onto the old Russian Road (Ruska cesta) towards the Mihov Dom (mountain hut) and past the Russian chapel. Cross the road and return onto it on the 17th hairpin bend. Turn left from the road and descend to the Stari Tamar pasture. After approximately 200 metres, the path turns right and returns onto the old Russian Road; it passes Erjavčeva Koča, Poštarski Dom and Tičarjev Dom (mountain huts) and ascends to the Vršič Pass, the highest mountain pass in the eastern Julian Alps. Along the way you can see numerous natural monuments and examples of cultural heritage, such as Ajdovska deklica (an image of a female face in the mountain wall of Prisank), the Prisank Window (an opening in the rock of Prisank), the Russian Chapel and the burial ground where the bodies of the Russian prisoners of war (who built the road) are buried.
