Visitors eager to enrich their tour of Plitvice Lakes with an interesting hiking climb are recommended to try the ascent to the peak of Oštri Medvjeđak. The first tourist trails leading to Medvjeđak were built back in the 19th century, and today's markings mostly follow the routes of these ancient trails. The first trail in the area was built in 1894, and it took hikers to the peak of Tupi Medvjeđak. In 1900, the Royal Forestry Administration built a forest path from the hotel that existed in the area back then to the peak of Oštri Medvjeđak. The starting points for a climb to Medvjeđak are parking lots opposite to two entrances to the Plitvice Lakes National Park on the state road Zagreb – Split. The markings lead to the peak from both Entrance 1 (Rastovača) and Entrance 2 (Hladovina). The path from Entrance 2 is somewhat shorter, more beautiful and easier for orientation. The climb requires one hour and 30 minutes of hiking.
