Description of the trail 

The trail which is very well known by the locals and leads to the Village of Brezno, starts from the center of the Village of Tearce. The main direction we are heading is towards north/ northwest and it immediately begins with a climb along a wide unpaved road to the Village of Brezno. This part of the trail passes through an old chestnut forest, by which this region is recognizable. From the village along the trail leading to the locality "Tri Vode" we are heading to "Brezjansko Lake" from where we change the direction to south and we start with a mild climb to the place called "Brezjanski Livadi". The trail in this area passes through a not so dense forest belt along a wide unpaved road and after the meadows continues into a mountain trail. From this point the trail enters into a thick forest belt and on the same level reaches the meadows that are located under the peak Brezjanski Kule. This part of the trail is quite relaxing, because there is no ascent and it passes through untouched nature. The thick beech forest on the summer days is great for a break before arriving at the pasture area. When the trail comes out on the meadows under the peak Brezjanski Kule, it merges with the trail that goes from the peak Brezjanski Kule to "Tri Vode" from where it extends south to the saddle under the peak Brezjanski Kule. From this point after only 60 meters of steep climbing in the direction towards east we arrive at the peak Brezjanski Kule.
