Safety information

Be aware of the harsh conditions during the winter. Although it's a marked hiking trail, the weather and snow migth make it a pretty difficult hike.

Getting there

Unfortunately it's an expedition to actually reach the trailhead. There are busses from Otočac to Krasno and also hopping on a schoolbus might be a good way to the trail or leave Gornja Klada. I can't really inform you about which or where to get more information, because everything I found on internet turned out to be different in reality. So, be prepared and take your time!
