Follow the old forest road for 3.5 km and turn towards Vesine Staje. From there, go through the lovely pine forest to Omar Meadow. From there, again take the forest road to Omrcenica and further to the beech forest. Go over mountain meadows and dwarf pines toward the steeper slopes of Mali (Little) Vran. Follow the unmarked ridge to Vran, and then again the marked trail to the crossing to Veliki (Great) Vran. Decide if you are going for the highest summit of Vran mountain (approximately 1 hour more). Descend via the marked trail down to the pine forest, and at the end, follow the gravel road for a couple hundred meters to the hotel Hajducke Vrleti.

Motel Hajducke Vrleti

Turn-by-turn directions

Stay on the forest road that can be driven on with a 4x4. Do not turn onto the old tractor tracks. The blazings are on the rocks along the way. Turn right (north) at the junction marked with signage that says "Vesine staje". At Omar (a meadow with an old shepherds' settlement and a small green house), turn right on the road and follow it up to Omrcenica (a sheperd settlement with holiday huts). Cut down the old forest road to the right before reaching some houses. After you cross an open field, turn right on the new forest road (tracks) and after 1.5 km turn left. At the next crossing turn right (up). Follow the unmarked ridge the whole time, and continue on the marked trail again after Vran summit. The next crossing is 30-40 minutes from the highest summit, Veliki Vran. To go down, turn right. 

You can also descend directly from Veliki Vran (over unmarked trackless slopes) and join the trail again just above the pine forest. 

From the powerlines, follow the road to the hotel.
