Path description:
From the starting point, where nearby there is a vending machine of farm Pr Šupc we continue on the road towards the village Leskovica and in the direction of hiking paths on Blegoš, Ermanovec and Slajka. Few minutes we walk by the edge of the road, partly also on a sidewalk, and then signs for Ermanovec and Slajka point us to the left (straight Blegoš), where over the bridge we cross Kopačnica, and immediately after the bridge at the church of St. Lovrenc we continue right and we gradually start ascending. At first, we are ascending past few more houses, and then signs point us sharply left, where few 10 strides we continue on a cart track, and on the meadow cart track changes into a footpath, and it turns a little to the right and leads past another house. Higher, we cross few worse cart tracks, and blazes through a lane of a little overgrown path take us to an asphalt road which we only cross. On the other side of the road, we at first ascend steeper, and then we continue on a narrower footpath which continues through a small valley, where runs also the route of a power line. From the valley we soon diagonally ascend towards the right, where we reach the ridge (here from the right joins one more footpath), and here the footpath turns to the left. A little further, we cross another cart track, and when we leave the forest we quickly ascend to an asphalt road which we follow to the right. Asphalt road then leads us past the bench, where the path branches off to the right towards Vrh Slajke, and the road which semicircular turns to the left we follow to the nearby farm, from which to the mountain hut Dom na Slajki separates us only a minute of walking.
From the hut, we return to the near farm, where we bypass the main buildings on the upper side and we continue on the macadam road which on the nearby meadow changes into a cart track. Next follows a walk through a lane of a forest and then we get to grassy slopes of Špik or Vranškov griča (on maps we can find both names), which we with nice views cross. When we reach a bad macadam road we descend there (right private land), and when the road flattens we join a wider macadam road which we reach above the farm Hom.
We continue in the direction of Ermanovec and then we for quite some time walk on the macadam road which later becomes asphalted. Next follows some descent with nice views, after that from a smaller crossroad we continue slightly right (slightly left we can descend to the church of St. Pavel in Stara Oselica), and from the next crossroad we go slightly left (slightly right farm Rotovž).
Next follows an easy ascent and the path brings us to the spot, where the marked path splits.
We continue on the left path, which leaves the road (right mountain hut on Ermanovec, the path which bypasses the peak of Ermanovec) and continues on a cart track. We at first walk by the edge of the meadow, and the path is slowly turning slightly towards the left. At the crossings, we follow the blazes, and the path soon passes into the forest and ascends on a small saddle, where there is a marked crossing.
We continue left in the direction of the settlement Trebija (slightly right mountain hut on Ermanovec, right Ermanovec) and we continue walking on a gentle cart track which soon comes out of the forest on the upper slope of Vršnikov grič. Here we leave the marked path, which bypasses the peak a little to the right and we walk to indistinct peak. At the far northern part of the peak there are several antennas.
