Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Lipce, where we drive right towards Jesenice. In the settlement Slovenski Javornik, at the crossroad with traffic lights we turn left towards the center of the town. At the second traffic light crossroad (at secondary school) we drive right, back towards the road Tomšičeva cesta past the primary school on the left. We drive for additional 2.5 km to the end of street Tomšičeva ulica, or to the spot, where by the railway tracks there is the last bus stop below the hill. Here is a large parking lot, or our starting point.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we go on the asphalt road uphill, where just below the top on the left we notice a footpath, on which we go and there we turn in the direction past gardens on our left. We immediately come near the residential buildings on the left, where we cross a shorter cart track (it runs to the nearby water reservoir on the right). The footpath now ascends a little towards power line which we quickly reach. Here we turn right uphill towards the east on a gravel path.
We soon reach the other power line, where the path turns left into a smaller forest (in the summer time we run into wire fence), after which we step on (hunting) footpath east-west. We turn left (west) over a pasture, at the end of which we notice a smaller bench, and here we continue right steeper uphill. Soon steepness decreases and the path turns left towards exposed rocky "baba", where we can enjoy the view.
We continue in deciduous forest (direction west), where the path, which crosses a slope, at first descends a little, and after this it brings us on forest plain. Here among fern we get to its edge, where there is a smaller crossing. We continue right by the edge, and after approx 40 meters we run into another crossing (left turn off), where we continue straight uphill. At first wider forest path, soon turns right and narrows. Further, we are ascending in zig-zags on forest slope. After some time at the top of the eastern ridge of Jelenkamen path flattens a little, and it continues straight uphill towards the north. Soon (at the fallen tree) path turns sharply left, where at first crosses a little steeper slope, and after this it brings us on partly open space, where a view opens up on Julian Alps, and on the main viewpoint of Jelenkamen, which is located good 100 altitude meters below its peak. Here the path turns right, steeply uphill (carefully on the descent in wet!), which doesn't last long. When the path flattens and pointing a little towards the left, on the trees we notice different signs. And soon on the eastern slope in northwest traverse the path for the last time ascends towards the summit of Jelenkamen. When we after few minutes reach the peak, we turn right (left - Jelenkamen) towards the northwest. Next follows few minutes walk on a marked path of a forested ridge and when it descends a little we get to a crossing: right - Pristava, left - Rovt Dole, straight - hunting path on Lenčkov Špik. We choose the last and we ascend there in the same direction from where we come from. When after a short time, the path descends a little, we get to the right turn-off, on which we go and we leave a marked hunting path. The path which crosses quite a steep slope of Lenčkov Špik, quickly brings us to Lenčkov rovt. Here we step on a cart track on which we at first descend a little and then at the crossing we choose the left, and there we moderately ascend through and by pastures all the way to its end at the forest road Prihodi - Križovec. We go right and we walk on the mentioned road for additional 10 minutes, whereupon we get to a cart track on the left, which leads in the forest towards the northwest (by the road on the right side there is a smaller parking lot). We go there and we step on a marked path Pristava - Črni vrh. Only a little further, the path reaches a smaller indistinct saddle, after which it starts gradually descending. At the spot, where the path turns left and then it ascends a little, we cross the stream (left - Ukova). After a shorter, moderate ascent, just before we step out of the forest at the crossing we choose right, or the path which leads straight. When we find ourselves on a grassy slope, we go on an ascending cart track on our right and with that (before we would again step in the forest) we leave the marked path. The cart track which towards the top of more and more panoramic slope starts vanishing, brings us on a large saddle just below Španov vrh on our right (here a view opens up towards Golica). Follows only a shorter ascent by the edge of the ski slope to the upper station of the chairlift Španov vrh.
