By the starting point, there aren't any parking spots.
D) First, we drive to Cerkno, and from there we continue driving through saddle Kladje (Podlanišče) towards Sovodenj. From Sovodenj we continue driving by the stream Hobovščica, and then in a little larger crossroad we continue left in the direction of Gorenja vas (right Žiri). On the main road towards Škofja Loka we drive to the settlement Podgora, where at the crossroad behind the bus stop there is the beginning of the described path. By the starting point, there aren't any parking spots.
Path description:
From the crossroad at the bus stop we go on a side road which from the main branches off towards the southwest, and from there before the chapel we go right and we ascend past few more houses. At the smaller crossroad a little higher we go right, and then we go past the last houses, where the asphalt ends. The path ahead leads us on the macadam road which crosses slopes towards the right, and at two crossroads, we go slightly right and then we cross the stream. After the stream the road changes into a wider cart track which starts ascending steeper. Higher, the cart track which gradually narrows makes few hairpin turns, and then joins the path from Hotavlje, which leads on the ridge of Bela.
We continue left on a wider footpath which soon widens into a cart track, and it turns a little left and at the hunting observatory comes out of the forest. Here by the lower edge on a cart track we cross a meadow, and when we reach the macadam road we follow it to the right. The road soon starts descending and in few minutes brings us to a crossroad, where we reach an asphalt road. On the asphalt road, we ascend to the nearby crossroad from which we continue right in the direction of Slajka.
Next follows an ascent on the asphalt road, and when we leave the forest, from the right joins the marked path from Hotavlje.
Asphalt road then leads us past the bench, where the path branches off to the right towards Vrh Slajke, and the road which semicircular turns to the left we follow to the nearby farm, from which to the mountain hut Dom na Slajki separates us only a minute of walking.
From the hut, we return to the near farm, where we bypass the main buildings on the upper side and we continue on the macadam road which on the nearby meadow changes into a cart track. Next follows a walk through a lane of a forest and then we get to grassy slopes of Špik or Vranškov griča (on maps we can find both names), which we with nice views cross. When we reach a bad macadam road we descend there (right private land), and when the road flattens we join a wider macadam road which we reach above the farm Hom.
We continue in the direction of Ermanovec and then we for quite some time walk on the macadam road which later becomes asphalted. Next follows some descent with nice views, after that from a smaller crossroad we continue slightly right (slightly left we can descend to the church of St. Pavel in Stara Oselica), and from the next crossroad we go slightly left (slightly right farm Rotovž).
Next follows an easy ascent and the path brings us to the spot, where the marked path splits.
We continue on the left path, which leaves the road (right mountain hut on Ermanovec, the path which bypasses the peak of Ermanovec) and continues on a cart track. We at first walk by the edge of the meadow, and the path is slowly turning slightly towards the left. At the crossings, we follow the blazes, and the path soon passes into the forest and ascends on a small saddle, where from the left the path from Trebija joins.
We continue right in the direction of Ermanovec (slightly right mountain hut on Ermanovec) and we are ascending on and by an indistinct ridge. During the ascent occasionally a view opens up a little, otherwise a partly forest path in few minutes of additional walking brings us to the summit of Ermanovec, from where a nice view opens up also on Julian Alps.
