Route description: this hiking path, number 7, starts from the parking lot and then climbs steeply up over rocks and stone, past mountain pines up to the top. The alternative path: a gravel road. After 1.5 hours, both paths meet at a large crossway. The last stretch up to the Fanes mountain pasture follows the gravel road.
