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 on the path running parallel to the road to the Vršič Pass. The path branches off and starts ascending. Later it branches off onto the right and leads along the edge of the woods above ski tows. Later, when crossing a ski slope and arriving at the top of the ski slope in Podkoren where the Vitranc Cup takes place, the trail turns steeply uphill to Vitranc.
From the top of Vitranc you can head towards the upper station of the chairlift that drives to the peak of Vitranc. There you can join trail No 13 and continue along the ridge towards west. After approximately a 45 minute-walk you arrive at the peak of Ciprnik.
You can either descend on the same path or return to the valley by the chairlift. It is also possible to walk some parts of the path and then take the chairlift Vitranc 1 or Vitranc 2. Duration of tour
