Beautiful Prenj mountain, exept really poor marking on some parts and staying on the trail was very tiring for me. Trail to Ravna: I tried to follow the signs as Jérémy recommended which was on some places quite hard because of many trails you come across and not really frequent signs on some parts. Also overgrown in some parts, I got lost few times, but I made it with some screams of desperation.😅 But I think still much better than the road and you get some pretty nice views on Jablanica. Trail to Milanova koliba (opened): very steep, I was dead when I came to the hut, some parts overgrown, thanks god it's in shade, plan to hike slow. Trail to Vrutak: on many parts trail is not visible, signed terrible (I think people who were signing it should take a lesson how to do it properly), needed 5h for it, you are constantly scanning with your eyes to find signs, very tiring for me because they say "stay on the trail because of mines" and you are constantly getting lost and are searching for a trail.😔 At Lučine shelter (opened, simple but nice, not on the map, on 13.2km, 2h from Milanova koliba) DO NOT follow the gps track (read a comment from Max to see why), but go back a little bit until you see a rock on a first photo and here turn right, in few meters you'll see a sign. By Vrutak hut is a small shelter (on photo) that doesn't look the best, you can't even close the doors properly. Trail to Rujište: signed good, you can hike fast. Didn't check shelter at Bijele vode, but hut was closed. Jezerce shelter looks nice. Agree with Max, I also needed just 25min to the Zelena glava peak, those "climbing" sections are not really climbing, at least for me. Did it in three days because I also went on two peaks off trail. 1st day: Jablanica-Ravna-Milanova k. 2nd day: Milanova k. - Vrutak-Kruna and Velika kapa (without a backpack, nice view on Prenj mountain, needed aprox 90min to the peak, signed quite good, you can find accurate gps tracks here: https://gorja.net/putopisi/201/pl-skloniste-vrutak-kruna-velika-kapa-pl-dom-rapta/) - Vrutak-Jezerce shelter. 3rd day: Jezerce-Zelena glava-Rujište-Boračko lake. Water: 2 full tanks at Milanova k, 1 full tank at Vrutak, just few liters in canister at Lučine, full well 2min before Bijele vode hut (on photo), half full well at Bijele vode hut, spring by Jezerce shelter. Mountain lodge Rujište closed, I called them several times in advance, but they didn't answer, the same story on their FB page, I saw a person inside, but the doors were locked, I didn't fell welcome there. I can confirm that food at motel is very good.
When did you do this route? July 13, 2021
