Access to starting point:
A) From Ljubljana, we drive towards Kočevje or vice versa. Only about a kilometer after (from the direction of Kočevje before) Velike Lašče we will get to a crossroad, where we turn left towards the village Zgornje Retje (from the direction of Kočevje right). The road then through a narrow overpass over the railway track brings us to a crossroad, where we continue left (right Zgornje Retje). Only a little further, we come to the next crossroad, where we continue right upwards on a macadam road. We follow this road approximately 3 km to a crossroad, where we notice signs for Kamen vrh. We park on one of the parking lots by the road near the crossroad.
B) From highway Ljubljana - Novo Mesto we go to the exit Grosuplje (from Ljubljana direction possible also to the exit Cikava), and then we continue driving towards the center of Grosuplje. From Grosuplje we continue driving in the direction of Veliko Mlačevo, Mala and Velika Račna and Videm. From Veliko Mlačevo we continue right (straight Lobček and Luče), and then we continue driving towards Videm, and we are driving there to the settlement Zdenska vas, where we at first turn right in the direction of the settlement Videm, and few 10 meters further once again right towards the settlement Rašica. The road then leads us through part of the settlement Cesta and continues by the railway track to the settlement Predstruge, where at the crossroad at the end of the settlement, we continue straight (left Videm, right Rašica) on at first still an asphalt road which later becomes a macadam and starts ascending through the forest. When higher we get to a little bigger crossroad, where we notice the sign for Kamen vrh, we park on an appropriate place by the crossroad.
Path description:
From the crossroad, we don't continue on the road in the direction of Kamen vrh, but we return on the road few meters to a marked mountain path which leads from Ponikve towards Kamen vrh (if we came from Predstruge we continue on the right road). The marked footpath immediately goes into the forest and is at first only gently ascending. The path which is occasionally a little harder to follow higher joins the cart track, on which we continue the ascent. The cart track which gradually starts ascending steeper, higher changes into a footpath on which in few minutes of additional walking, we ascend on Kamen vrh, and from there in few 10 strides we descend to the mountain hut.
From the mountain hut, we continue on a worse macadam road which starts slightly descending. The mentioned road, we follow only few 10 meters, then signpost for Grmada points us left on a footpath. After few steps of additional walking, we get to a poorly marked crossing, where we continue right (slightly left Podgora).
The path which is still slightly descending, soon brings us to a forest road which we follow to the nearby crossroad. From the crossroad, we continue on the right road and we follow it to the spot, where a signpost points us left into a dense forest. Further, we are ascending on the path which higher brings us to a panoramic grassy slope. A poorly visible and occasionally very badly marked path then turns a little more to the right, where we come to a wide meadow. In the middle of the mentioned meadow, the marked path turns left in the forest (access on Grmada is possible also on a cart track which leads straight), on which in few minutes of a little steeper walking we ascend to the summit of Grmada.
The entire path, and especially the part of the path from Kamen vrh to Grmada is orientationally difficult.
On the way: Kamen vrh (783m)
