Hiking over Trinjaca and Plasa to Jablanica town.
Distance 17.1 km
5:49 h
203 m
1,857 m

Highlights include the Crvenjak lake, Hajducka vrata, Trinjaca peak 2045m, and Plasa. Further into the second part on Plasa mountain, there are also tame alpine meadows.

The view point close by Vilinac hut is spectacular.

The descending part is not as interesting as the hike over the mountain. It follows old forest roads till it reaches asphalt which is your pick-up point.

Turn-by-turn directions

The trail continues north to the other side of Prigon pass. It is recommended to visit the the view point (right, east from the Hut), which will bring you back below Prigon. The next crossing is just a couple hundred meters ahead, and from there you go right.

At the Hajducka vrata (Rebel’s gate), you need to continue straight up to Trinjaca summit and not descend down to direction of Diva Grabovica valley.

At Plasa hut you’ll go east and the trail will bring you to the 4x4 road. Follow this main road and disregard the less used branches off it. If in doubt, turn left. There will be one junction, and there you should turn left. The water source on the descending way is marked by a signboard. The road will pass by Jablanica’s landfill (not a nice place after Cvrsnica, but only option at the moment) and soon the asphalt road will be reached.
