Dobrca (Dobrtcha) is the southest part of mountains near Stol and the western part of mountains near Storzic. It is some kind of stand-allone summit between the cities of Trzic and Begunje. We have a specially nice view on this hill from Bled, one of the beautifull hollidays destinations in Slovenia.
Geologically, this mountain is a part of Kamnik Alps, but because of the valley with small river (Trziska Bistrica) between, You can have an idea, that Dobrca is also a Part of Karavanke.
From the summit of Dobrca in direction North, you will find also two smaller summits (Sivora – 1317m and Cisovec – 1418m) before you rich a saddle Preval (1311m), where the ridge of Begunjscica starts (already a part of Karavanke).
On the southern side of Dobrca we have Kranj valley with very fetile fields about 400 meters above the sea level.
On the southern foothills of Dobrca a good road from Trzic to Begunje runs, and from villages on this road there are the most popular approaches to the summit. (Trzic, Brezje, Hudi Graben, Slatna).
The most popular trailhead is Brezje. When we come from the central part of Slovenia (Kranj, Ljubljana), the best way is to Trzic and in Trzic we take the road for Begunje.
When we come from the western part (Jesenice) we can take the same way or also a opposite direction through Begunje via Trzic.
To Trzic and Begunje we can travel also by bus. With train the best location is Kranj, where we take a bus to Trzic.
The nearest airport: Brnik (Ljubljana).

Vid: It's unusual, but officially Kamnik Alps begin on the West just above Zirovnica, almost at Jesenice town. The ridge, which separates Zavrsnica valley with Gorenjska plane is vely low. It starts on the West with Mali vrh, 863m and continues over a few bumps to Smokuski vrh, 1122m. Actually between Draga valley and Zavrsnica valley there are some more hills, covered with woods, which are not important for mountaineering. But the ridge from Zavrsnica to Smokuski vrh and further to Sv. Peter church is a very nice hike, requiring on some places also easy climbing. In winter 2005 we had quite some problems to do it and I remember it as a nice, panoramic tour.
