Access to starting point:
A) From Ljubljana, we drive towards Kočevje, but only to the settlement Ortnek. In the mentioned settlement right after snack bar Okrepčevalnica Vinija the road branches off to the right towards the settlement Sveti Gregor. Immediately after the crossroad, we park on an appropriate place by the road. The parking lot in front of the snack bar is intended for guests.
B) From Ribnica or Sodražica we drive to the settlement Žlebič, and from there we continue driving in the direction of Ljubljana, but only to the settlement Ortnek. In the mentioned settlement is before snack bar Okrepčevalnica Vinija, the road branches off to the left towards the settlement Sveti Gregor. Just before the crossroad, we park on an appropriate place by the road (appropriate place is on the opposite side of the road). The parking lot in front of the snack bar is intended for guests.
Path description:
From the crossroad at snack bar Okrepčevalnica Vinija we at first carefully cross the main road, and then we few 10 strides walk in the direction of Ribnica. When we get to a crossroad, where a road branches off to the left towards the settlement Velike Poljane and Grmada, we leave the main road and we continue on the mentioned local road. After few 10 meters of additional walking, we cross the stream and behind it at the smaller crossroad we continue right in the direction of hamlet Dule. Towards the mentioned hamlet we don't walk long, because signs for Grmada, still before the nearby house lead left on a little steeper macadam road, on which we continue the ascent. After few minutes, the forest through which we walk ends and in front of us, we notice the church and settlement Velike Poljane.
A little before the church we step on an asphalt road, and there we start ascending through the village. On some crossroads we follow the signs towards Grmada, and then settlement ends and nice views open up, which reach all the way to Julian Alps with the highest Triglav. When the road passes into a smaller valley, we get to the spot, where signs for Grmada point us to the left on a macadam road (straight - Grmada on the asphalt road and Stene Svete Ane). From the macadam road soon a dead-end road branches off to the left, and we continue on a slightly right road which starts ascending a little steeper. During the ascent on a quite panoramic road, once again a view opens up towards the Julian Alps, and towards the southwest a nice view opens up also towards Snežnik. Higher, the road becomes asphalted, and marked path from there turns slightly to the left and after few 10 strides joins the "main road".
We follow the road to the left, and past a little bigger chapel it brings us to the settlement Vrh pri Poljanah. After the short settlement, on a large parking lot the asphalt ends, and we continue on the macadam road, on which in few minutes we get to the hut Turistični dom na Grmadi, from where a nice view opens up also towards the southeast and south.
