IPP begins in the settlement of Crveni Vrh (Monte Rosso), above the tourist settlement Lavra in Savudrijska vala. From Crveni vrh, IPP markings lead along the top of the hill offering a nice view of Savudrijska vala, and continue to the viewpoint of Sv. Petar (75 m.a.s.l.). From the viewpoint onwards, the trail continues in the same southeastern direction, above the coast and the tourist settlement Kanegra, and towards the TV transmission tower on the hill of Markovac (162 m.a.s.l.). Passing through the village of Markovac, we reach Kaldanija on the asphalt road Buje – Plovanija. The route takes us onwards, along the former narrow-gauge railway Parenzana (built in 1910 and closed and disassembled in 1936). We then continue across Triban (175 m.a.s.l.) to the picturesque medieval town Grožnjan. From this town onwards, the markings take us further along the route of Parenzana, next to the chapel of St. Cosmas and Damian, and then next to a hunting lodge, to Sv. Juraj (315 m.a.s.l.) and further through the settlements of Sv. Ivan, Sv. Lucija, Laganiši, Vižintini and Čabrnica. The route offers beautiful views of the valley of the Mirna River. The markings then lead us down into the valley, next to the ruins of the fortress Pietrapelosa. From the valley of the Mirna River, we continue to Mali Mlun, proceeding to Pruhari (260 m.a.s.l.) and to IPP control point 7 (Buzet) – a pleasant viewpoint of the town of Buzet. What follows is a descent to the town itself. This is where a climb to Ćićarija begins (across the Buzet railway station, which is located high above the town). Hikers who wish to tour the entire route stage described here, need to plan three or more days for this tour.
