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.
Good option to reach Sarajevo on foot from main Via Dinarica trail.
From Umoljani follow marks towards Elezovici and after east to Vrelo (Spring) Stube. From there take the road up to Bjelasnica (Observatory) summit as the trail is crossig the road on curves. From summit follow the ski slope down to ski lift Kotlovi start point, and from there turn left from the ski area (marking difficult !). When you reach the shelter Bozja- Kunat, follow trail down to the forest (right), and road down all the way. First turn will be right, and after stay on the main road until above Veliko polje. Look for the markings and turn to one of the side tracks. After Veliko polje cross the road and follow smaller road to Igman's war mosque, and from there left towards Hrasnicki stan mountain hut. From there follow hiking (not biking!) signage on the trees all the way donw to Hrasnica.
