Path description:
From the starting point at the inn Legastja at first we carefully cross the road, and then we go on a footpath in the direction of St Jakob. The path is at first ascending on a grassy cart track which leads us among meadows and pastures, and then it flattens and it brings us to a smaller hamlet, where we step on an asphalt road. We continue among some houses, after which the asphalt road changes into a cart track, on which we ascend to the nearby hayracks. At hayracks blazes point us slightly left, on the path which is then ascending on a meadow. Easy to follow, but in the time of high grass a little overgrown path, after few minutes brings us to other asphalt road which we reach at the smaller crossroad, by which there is a cross. We continue on the left side of the cross, on an ascending road, on which we quickly get to a hamlet with few houses and a marked crossing there.
From the crossing, we continue straight and for few minutes we continue on the road (left 10 minutes shorter path). When in the forest road makes a right turn, we leave it and we continue straight on a little steeper marked path, which ascends through the forest and a little higher leads past the water storage. From here few minutes of ascent through the forest follows, and then we get to the edge of a meadow, where the path turns right. Cart track on which we continue we leave in a gentle left turn, because blazes point us to the right on a footpath which crosses slopes towards the right. After a shorter traversing, we step on a macadam road and we follow it to the right. Mentioned macadam road quickly brings us to a crossroad, from which we continue on the upper left road in the direction of St Jakob and Brezovica. From the asphalt road soon a view opens up towards St. Jakob, which we already see left behind us, and we walk on the road to the settlement Brezovica, where signs for St. Jakob point us to the left. When the settlement ends we join the marked path (cart track from Katarina).
The path continues on a wide cart track, from which a nice view opens up on our destination and in good weather also on Kamnik Savinja Alps and Posavsko hribovje. On the other side of panoramic meadow path gets closer to the forest, where joins the path from Sora and Preska. Here as well, we continue left, on a cart track we walk only few 10 strides, because then blazes lead right on a relatively steep path which continues by the edge of the forest (even if we continue on a cart track we will come to the summit). During the ascent a nice view opens up towards Polhograjska Grmada, and from the summit, which we reach after few minutes also towards other peaks of Polhograjsko hribovje.
