The trail follows Via Dinarica artery through back-Bjelasnica villages and up to Observatory summit (2067 m). From there it descends part of ski slope and in lower part of Kotlovi valley joins Josip’s trail (Josipova staza). It follows the trail to forest road and continues to Veliko polje on Igman and further more to the mountain hut Hrasnicki stan. From Hrasnicki stan the trail descends to Hrasnica cutting forest road from time to time.

There is possibility to continue on the road by water reservoir down to Stojcevac lake and picking area, which is close by Springs of Bosnia (Vrelo Bosne).

Also, one go avoid ski slope and follow Josip's trail from very summit, but it is steep descend with steal cables on its parts.

Author’s recommendation

Good option to reach Sarajevo on foot from main Via Dinarica trail.
