From Mojstrana in Sava valley, you drive (or walk) into the beautiful Vrata valley. Half way into the valley there's Koca pri Pericniku (mountain hut) and on the right side of the road Pericnik waterfall itself (10 minutes walk).

You proceed by the road and in the middle of the first steeper rise you will see a big scree (gravel), coming down from the right (from below Kukova spica on the left and Skrantarica on the right) ), like a river. This is called Cerlovec, in the upper part being a long ravine. There's a trailhead and also a parking place.
