This 25-kilometre walk on Mt Treskavica includes Turovi, Sustavac, the Skok waterfall and the lakes Veliko jezero and Crno jezero. You can leave your car in the village of Turovi. A wide macadam trail leads all the way to Sustavac. It takes an hour to reach Camp Sustavac, where there is a spring. Mt Treskavica is famous for its 365 natural springs, active throughout the year, so you don't have to carry a large suppy of water on this walk. You can fill up your water bottles at each one of these springs. Just above Sustavac the road is very muddy and many trees have been cut down; the resulting anthropogenic influence on the environment is observable.

The first beautiful point on this walk is Skok Waterfall. In order to reach it, you have to get off the main road. The road goes on uphill to just above the waterfall. This is where you have to cross or perhaps walk through the Hrasnički potok stream, as there is often no bridge or log across it.

Coming out to Šišan and the view of Lake Veliko is always spectacular, especially in fair weather. During the time of snowmelt, the lake is even larger and more beautiful. The road continues uphill towards Lake Crno. This is the last ascent of the walk. The higher altitude and the shade of the nearby peaks cause Lake Crno to be surrounded by snow somewhat longer. Near the lake you can break for lunch and rest for the walk back to Turovi. In Turovi you can visit Kazani and see interesting shapes in the rocks.
