Županj Vrh is an unimpressive peak, it's summit easily gained from the hamlet of Brgudac. Instead it offers wide views, particularly southward towards Učka, and some other interest on route.
Once the steep initial climb to Korita is accomplished, the going is becomes easier. When I hiked this route in 2016, taking the photos for this tour, it was with my two sons, it was with some delight that we reached the spring beneath Brajkov Vrh, itself formerly an HPO before being moved to Županj Vrh.
The hike to the summit of Sisol from Brseč is steep, and in the summer heat, draining. The views on the ascent over the bay are fine, and once the Krševiti Ridge is obtained, you are well rewarded.
A natural stone arch, a window through the ridge crest is the first wonder to be met. It is marked as Provrtenica on the map, but the name does not translate. As an additional bonus the arch lies in the shade of a small wood, so offering a good place for a break.

Moving on, the second reward is some easy scrambling on sun baked rock. A short distance later the geodetic pillar on the summit is reached. The path continues along the ridge, descending as part of the Istarski Planinarski Put (IPP, Istrian Mountain Path) to Plomin.
The photos used in this tour were taken using an iPhone 4 stitch app, during the summer of 2013 on a hike with my two young sons.
