This is the trail through the remote area of Cvrsnica Mountain, starting at the Masna Luka Franciscan Monastery (1120 m) and ending at the Vilinac mountain hut (1961 m). Orientation in summer should not be a problem, but there are no winter marking poles except at the junction to Plocno summit. 

The ascent via Boricevac offers spectacular views to Veliko polje and Vran mountain (2074m), and the nearby trail near Vilinac hut offers a great view point over Diva Grabovica valley and Prenj mountain. The first sections go through the endemic Munika pine forest.

There are no shelters along the way, although there is a plan to build one close to the junction to Plocno to support winter ascents.
