The beginning of the trail is Gornja Lastva, through the place Orasje you go further to the church of St. Vid on the eponymous peak at 440m above sea level, which was built in 1327. Although the locals say that in fact that year it was only renovated on the foundations of a church built in the century.
After a break and taking photos from probably the most beautiful viewpoint in the Tivat Bay, we move on. We descend again to Orasje and then along a narrow path we come to one of several springs that are active throughout the year, so that even in summer we will be able to refresh ourselves with cold spring water.
Near the source is the so-called K4 rock, 70 meters high stone formation, whose top is very easy to reach from the north side.
From the rock, the view “shoots” at Tivat, Risan and part of the Herceg Novi Bay, and the ferry that runs every few minutes from this perspective looks like a toy.
Below we will find a narrow path that splits in several directions, so depending on the group we decide whether to turn left and go along the forest path next to the meadow and descend near the military base in Lepetane or continue right to pass through the old settlement where there is still a couple of natives who are engaged in the agriculture and then descend the stone path next to the church of St. Anton some 200 meters away from the ferry port.
Unless otherwise agreed, after leaving for the main road, we continue to Donja Lastva.
