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. Behind the school we drive past pedestrian crossing and we immediately turn in first (narrower) street on the left. When we ascend there for few 10 meters, on the right we see marked parking lot. Here is our starting point.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we continue on the road uphill, whereupon after few 10 meters on the left we notice swimming pool Ukova, and on the right road which branches off uphill towards the north in the forest.
We step on the latter and we follow it short time, i.e. to the right turn in front of which is on the same side a fenced water catchment. On other - left side we step on the path which cuts double turn of the road which we left. Here we run into the first blazes of the path Ukova - Dom Pristava. We quite quickly again cross the road, and we step on the path which starts ascending towards the north. When it starts turning left, it joins the cart track by which we notice a signpost. Here we go right on a cart track which quickly brings us to a small bridge over the stream Ukova. Immediately, when we stepped over, on the left we see footpath, which leads upwards towards the north. With that, when we step there, we leave the marked path, and on the right by the stream we notice a bench. After few steps uphill it seems, that the path is ending in the riverbed of a stream, in fact on this spot it turns sharply left, steeper uphill. While we are gaining altitude meters, on our right we hear murmur of a left branch of the stream Ukova, which is occasionally winding deeply below us. Eventually, when the path widens a little, steepness decreases and on a tree by the path on the left we run into a small religious symbol (cross). Soon after we on the right notice a smaller waterfall and a bigger rock, the path brings us near the old water catchment, past which our path still runs in the same direction. A little higher there are two smaller, old and therefore also less reliable wooden bridges. Soon after the second, still before the path goes again towards the riverbed of the main stream, by a smaller stream we turn left uphill. On partly soaked terrain path soon again brings us near the main stream, by which we ascend to a forest road right next to Jeseniški Rovt on our right, which we can by the way also visit. When we step on the mentioned road, we go there to the left, which quite soon brings us to hardened forest road Prihodi - Križovec. We go right and we walk there 10 - 15 min, whereupon on its left side we notice a cart track which is turning sharply left uphill through a shorter lane of a forest. When we step on the cart track, it quickly brings us on an open meadow, where after few 10 meters turns at first right and soon (near the holiday cottage) also left. After this we ignore the right turn-off and we continue on a cart track through meadows in the direction of northwest. On a very long right turn we ignore also the left turn off, where turn in other - eastern direction. When we walked a shorter lane of a forest, we again find ourselves on an open meadow or pasture, where the path turns left in the direction of north. Our cart track on the pasture almost vanishes, and in the mentioned direction on a slope we notice one more ascending cart track or path. When we got closer to it, we unnoticeably crossed marked path Ski cottage Črni Vrh - Dom Pristava. On this cart track, even though it soon vanishes, we get to a saddle on a ski slope below the very top, or upper station of the chairlift Španov Vrh, which is situated on our right, only few minutes away from the summit.
