The reserve can be
reached on foot along hiking trails or by car via a paved road. This
road is not suitable for large vehicles (buses).
The first, shorter hiking trail
(30 minutes) is rather craggy and one has to be careful; it starts by the
railway station in Skrad, crosses the tracks bound north and follows the tracks
some hundred meters to the exit for Zagreb. It is a path with many hairpin-bends,
with an altitude difference of around 300 meters it is marked and will lead you
to the entrance of the cave source of Zeleni vir.
The second is a somewhat longer path
(a 60 minute easy walk through the forest area of Jasle) and starts by the
railway station in Skrad. It goes along the paved road bound south, by the
power sub-station, crosses the railway tracks and continues along the forest
path to the crossroad from where the signs lead to the left along the walking
path. The track then descends through the forest to the cave (Muževa hišica)
whose entrance is located in the rock above the Jasle stream. In the vicinity
of the cave the path continues in the direction of the source of Kupica River.
The third, easiest mountain
path, can be reached by car if you take the turn towards the hamlet of Ložac on
the road Delnice – Brod na Kupi. After turning, drive to Ložac and continue
another hundred meters till the turn to the right onto an unpaved road. Along
that road you will reach the parking area. That is where the mountain path
begins upstream by the Curak creek. Walking slowly and enjoying the murmur of
the stream in some forty minutes you will reach the mountain lodge of „Zeleni
By car you can reach the
center of the reserve and the lodge at „Zeleni vir“ taking the paved and marked
road that passes through the village of Planina and is some 5km long. You
should drive carefully because the road is steep and winding.
