The trail starts from an asphalt road, where a vehicle can be left behind. Then, you can follow marked hiking trail that will lead you to the location. It is suitable option for a walk with small children, and the route itself does not have too much cumulative climb.

The bivouac was built as part of the "BH Bivak" project, and the implementation of the project was carried out by the mountaineering association Željezničar with financial assistance from the Federal Ministry of Tourism. The bivouac itself is object of an unusual shape with functional space to accommodate between 9 to 12 hikers.

Author’s recommendation

The complete trail is without natural sun protection (forest roads etc.). Take care of sun protection.
