Path description:
From the center Poče we continue right in the direction of Labinjske lehe (left - gentle and steep path on Porezen), and through the village we follow the blazes. When we reach a wider cart track we ascend there above the village, where we also get to a smaller hamlet, where two paths branch off to the left towards Porezen, and both join the gentle or steep path.
At the newer, in the time of the description (July 2020) still unfinished house we go slightly left on a cart track which then ascends diagonally through a panoramic meadow. When a little above the nearby homestead which is situated below the path, the path brings us into the forest, at numerous crossings we follow the blazes. Higher, where the path from Cerkno joins, we for some time step on the road, and from there only few steps further, at the crossing, where the path from Dolenji Novaki joins, we go left in the direction of Porezen.
After the crossing, we immediately leave the forest and we get to meadows Labinjske lehe, from where a nice view opens up on Cerkljansko, and the view reaches all the way to Krim, Snežnik and Trnovski gozd.
On the upper part of meadow path turns slightly left and passes on slopes named Počanska gora. Next follows light to moderate diagonal ascent towards the left, and we walk on a well-settled path, which is on short steep spot also well-secured and in dry undemanding.
After secured part path splits, and we continue on the bottom path (right winter route), which continues to ascend diagonally. Later slope becomes steeper, and the path with the help of log stairs for some time steeply ascends. The path quickly flattens and we reach the ridge of Hom, where from the right side joins the path from the ski slope Cerkno.
We continue in the direction of Porezen and we quickly descend to a saddle Velbnik, where on the left we notice a hunting cottage Lovska koča na Šašu.
From the saddle Velbnik, where we get quite close to a forest road which leads to the mountain hut Dom na Poreznu, we ascend through a narrow lane of a forest and then at the crossing of grazing fence the path splits.
We continue on the path which is ascending (the left path bypasses the peak Medrce and isn't marked, but it is slightly shorter, and it leads further towards Porezen), and there in 10 minutes we ascend on a panoramic peak Medrce, from where a nice view opens up on Porezen.
