This route on Mt Čvrsnica starts from the ski trail in Blidinje, and leads to Hajdučka vrata via Mali and Veliki Vilinac. There are several ways to get back to the starting point, form taking the same road back, taking the road via Zelenike and the most remote trail via Muharnica.

The ascent begins at the ski track, and leads to the top of the ski lift where the forest begins. This is the start of the walking trail which is well marked all the way. The trail is the shortest way from Blidinje to Veliki Vilinac, but also the steepest one. After an hour's walk through the forest, a wonderful view of lake Blidinjsko opens up, and you can also see Mt Vran, as well as Pločno, the highest summit of Mt Čvrsnica. Climb the wooden ladder, installed to facilitate safer climb over a rock, to the ridge. To the right of the ridge, just a metre or two away from the trail, is the edge of the several hundred metres deep chasm. The trail leads through the scrub to the peak Mali Vilinac. At the foot of the peak a trail branches off and leads back to the village of Zelenike in the direction of Blidinje.

Straight ahead is the peak Veliki Vilinac. First you have to descend the saddle between the two peaks, then master some 250 metres of altitude difference. From the peak it takes two more hours to reach Hajdučka vrata. If you have time you can make a short stop at the lodge "Vilinac". There is a spring not far from the lodge. When you reach Hajdučka vrata you can climb Trinača (also known as Drinača) and head towards lake Crljenak where you can take a break. On your way back you have to ascend Veliki Vilinac and Mali Vilinac again, or cover the 8 km from Vitlenica to the ski resort. User
