Access to starting point:
From Ljubljana, we drive on the highway towards Koper and we go to the exit Unec. At the crossroad, we continue right in the direction of Planina, where at the crossroad we turn sharply left towards Postojna (to here possible also on the old road). Further, we drive through Planina and at the spot, where we notice signs for Strmca and Studeno we turn right. And road soon brings us to the next crossroad, where it says left Postojna, straight Strmca and Studeno, and right doesn't say anything. Here we turn right (towards the quarry) and we drive only 30 meters to the spot, where a worse road branches off to the left by which we park.
From Postojna on the old road we drive towards Ljubljana. Soon behind the village Mačkovec at the sharp right turn, the road branches off to the left towards the village Strmca. And this road then soon brings us to the next crossroad, where we continue straight towards the quarry. And this road we don't follow to the quarry because already after 30 meters we leave it, because we turn left on a worse road by which we park.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we continue on a bad road ahead, but only to a smaller water supply building. Here the cart track branches off to the right, which already after few meters steeply ascends. Cart track, which runs through the forest is at the beginning very steep but steepness after few minutes decreases. Next follows a moderate ascent on a cart track which eventually joins the other wider cart track. Here we continue left on a cart track which is slightly ascending and after few minutes it joins next cart track which is almost a road. Here we can by the path notice few old military tunnels. This path then quickly brings us to the church of Holy Mary.
West from the church, near the forest road we notice a cart track which crosses slopes towards the west. We go on the mentioned cart track which higher brings us out of the forest on grassy slopes, where it vanishes. We continue the ascent on one of numerous, mostly poorly visible footpaths, which lead us towards the west. The path soon brings us on a panoramic secondary peak of Petričev hrib (we can also bypass the peak on the left side), from which we descend on a smaller indistinct saddle between the both peaks. From the small saddle, only a short ascent on a panoramic grassy slope follows.
In nice weather in spite of numerous footpaths, the orientation isn't very demanding, and in fog the orientation is almost impossible.
