Course starts in village Bobovica (1251m) on mountain Visočica. The village is accessible via asphalt road and it's a 45-minutes-drive from the center of Sarajevo. 

After you pass the village you can follow standard mountaineering marks and you will enter a nice forest trail that will guide you to the summit Drstva. Continue towards Vito over ridge and you will reach the summit in 2km. Beautiful scenery will follow this path with constant view on Visočica precious spots.        

After you pass summit Vito (1960m) trail goes slightly to the right and main orientation point is once again the ridge and canyon of Međeđa on your right of trail. Then you will pass peak Delelaš and leave peak Parić on the left. When you reach the four gravestones or as some call it “ridge Hrljeve bare” trail goes right at the bottom of canyon Međeđa. Water stream should be always on the right and trail goes through beautiful flower field until you enter the forest. In the forest there is a couple demanding descents that should be taken into account. On the second descent you will arrive at the Međeđa stream and you need to cross it. In about 1km you will arrive to the old Winter huts on Mirak. Then continue moving in the canyon back to Bobovica village.
