The trail is named after the noble Lambergh family, who were once the owners of Kamen Castle. The path leads from the car park opposite the Pri Jožovcu restaurant, past Katzenstein Mansion, across meadows to the Krpin recreation area. On reaching the road turn left and then soon after take the marked path on the right that leads into the forest.
