This is a rather interesting walking route: 1 lake – 2 mountains – 3 mountain lodges. It starts in front of the Feri Hotel on Mt Igman and proceeds over Javornik towards Lake Lokvanjsko and over Stanari and Podgradina towards Pazarić. Although it features no major ascends, the route still demands a certain level of fitness as it is about 20 kilometres long. It starts along the forest road leading to the Javornik mountain lodge which has benches in front of it where you can rest even when the lodge is closed.

Soon, you will pass by Međeđe Lokve and a turn leading to the peak of Vlahinja and Kara Mustafine Čaire. The path continues across scrub around the peak of Međeđa Glava. The next stop is Lokvanjsko Lake which makes a pleasant rest spot before proceeding to Stanari. This area is rich in blueberries and wild strawberries.

From Stanari, a marked trail leads across Podgradina and Bor, descending all the way to Pazarić where the route ends.
