Access to starting point:
A) First, we drive to Cerkno (to here from the road Idrija - Most na Soči, or over mountain pass Kladje), and then we continue driving in the direction of the ski slope Cerkno. Further, we drive past the inn Gačnik (Gostilna v Logu), after that soon signs for hospital Franja point us to the left on a little narrower and ascending asphalt road which we then follow to the parking lot by bar Pasice.
B) From the valley Poljanska dolina we drive to Hotavlje, and then we follow the signs for ski slope Cerkno. We follow the signs for ski slope Cerkno only to Kopačnica, where from the crossroad, where to the right the road continues towards the ski slope and Leskovica, we continue straight, on the road which continues along the stream Podplečica. At the homestead Joškovec, where there is the next confluence of rivers, we continue right, after that on partly macadam road we start ascending steeper. At the homestead Mrovlje the road turns on Primorska side, and after some descent we join the main road which leads from Cerkno towards the ski slope Cerkno. We follow the road left downwards, and when we notice signs for hospital Franja, we continue right and we ascend on a little narrower road to the parking lot by bar Pasice.
C) From the valley Selška dolina we ascend on Davča, and then we follow the signs for ski slope Cerkno and later signs for Cerkno. When we already descend on Primorska side, at the end of the settlement Dolenji Novaki we turn right in the direction of hospital Franja. Next follows a shorter ascent and we get to bar Pasice, where we park.
Path description:
From the starting point by bar Pasice we continue in the direction of Porezen and at first, we walk on the path which leads also towards hospital Franja. After few 10 meters of walking, the path towards the gorge Pasica turns slightly right, and we continue left and on the road we walk to homestead Podnjivč, where the path leads among houses. Behind the homestead over the footbridge we cross a stream and then we continue on a wide cart track which at the crossings we follow in the direction of blazes. Next follows crossing of hill Drnova (1004 meters), where the path leads with some shorter ascents and descents. When we get to southwest slopes, the path a little more descends and it brings us to the village Poljane, where there is a marked crossing.
From the crossing, we continue right towards Porezen (straight Cerkno and Labinje), where we at first ascend through a meadow, and then the path passes into the forest, through which it starts ascending steeper. At first, we are ascending near the scenic stream Trševka, and then the path goes a little away from the stream. Higher, we cross few more cart tracks and the forest road, at an altitude 960 meters we reach the marked crossing, where join the path from Cerkno and one of the paths from Poče.
We continue straight, across the road on meadows of Labinjske lehe, from where a nice view opens up on Cerkljansko, and the view reaches all the way to Krim, Snežnik and Trnovski gozd.
On the upper part of meadow path turns slightly left and passes on slopes named Počanska gora. Next follows light to moderate diagonal ascent towards the left, and we walk on a well-settled path, which is on short steep spot also well-secured and in dry undemanding.
After secured part path splits, and we continue on the bottom path (right winter route), which continues to ascend diagonally. Later slope becomes steeper, and the path with the help of log stairs for some time steeply ascends. The path quickly flattens and we reach the ridge of Hom, where from the right side joins the path from the ski slope Cerkno.
We continue in the direction of Porezen and we quickly descend to a saddle Velbnik, where on the left we notice a hunting cottage Lovska koča na Šašu.
From the saddle Velbnik, where we get quite close to a forest road which leads to the mountain hut Dom na Poreznu, we ascend through a narrow lane of a forest and then at the crossing of grazing fence the path splits.
We continue on the path which is ascending (left path bypasses the peak Medrce and isn't marked), and there in 10 minutes we ascend on a panoramic peak Medrce, from where a nice view opens up on Porezen.
