On the first sharp corner the path continues straight upwards, and after the water-well it goes on in bends to the saddle with a Chapel of St. Mihovil on. Just before the Chapel you have to turn left and follow the macadam road which goes upwards. After about 20 minutes of hiking there is a left branch of a good agricultural path which leads along abandoned arable lands and collapsed houses to the west ridge of the hill Mali Hum (515m).
