Access to starting point:
A) From highway Ljubljana - Novo Mesto we go to the exit Grosuplje (from Ljubljana direction possible also to the exit Cikava), and then we continue driving towards the center of Grosuplje. From Grosuplje we continue driving in the direction of Veliko Mlačevo, Mala and Velika Račna and Videm. From Veliko Mlačevo we continue right (straight Lobček and Luče), and then we continue driving towards Videm. In Videm we join the road from Rašica, and we follow it left (towards the south) and we drive there to the turn-off of the road towards the village Podgora, which is situated by the edge of Dobro Polje. To the mentioned village we come after few 100 meters of additional driving, and our path starts near the church. We park at the beginning of the village on an appropriate place by the road, the way we don't hinder the locals.
B) From the road Ljubljana - Kočevje at settlement Rašica we turn left (from the direction Kočevje right) in the direction of Ponikve, Predstruge and Videm. When we get to Predstruge we reach valley Dobrepoljska dolina, and we are driving there through Videm to the turn-off of the road towards Podgora. To the mentioned village we come after few 100 meters of additional driving, and our path starts near the church. We park at the beginning of the village on an appropriate place by the road, the way we don't hinder the locals.
Path description:
From the spot, where we've parked, we at first walk to the church, and from there we continue on at first a wide cart track which passes into the forest. Few minutes we are ascending on a cart track, and then the arrow on a tree points left on an old and steeper cart track. During the ascent, we carefully follow the blazes, and the path higher returns on a wider cart track. A little further, we cross a macadam road, and only a few meters higher we reach another road which we follow to the left (on this spot we leave the marked path which leads on Kamni vrh).
We continue on the macadam road which is gently to moderately ascending towards the left, and higher for some time turns sharply right and it brings us to a crossroad.
From the crossroad, we continue on the left road (the right road leads towards Kamen vrh), which is still diagonally ascending through the forest. Higher, the path for some time leads on a panoramic slope, from where a beautiful view opens up towards Dobrepolje and Suha krajini. Further, the road returns into the forest, and we walk there to the smaller left turn, where we reach another marked path which leads towards the top of Grmada.
On the mentioned spot, we leave the road and we continue on a marked or parallel better beaten unmarked path. Both paths after few minutes of the ascent join and bring us to the mountain hut on Grmada above Ortnek, from which a beautiful view opens up.
Peak of Grmada is situated few 10 strides further.
At the hut we notice signs for Sveta Ana, which point us on a macadam road which starts descending towards a smaller village Vrh pri Poljanah. Still before we get to houses in the village, the road becomes asphalted, and after the houses we get to a smaller crossroad at a bigger built chapel.
We continue straight on the asphalt road (on the left road, or lower mountain path, we can get to Podgora or Podpeč), and from which soon a marked footpath branches off to the right towards Ortnek, and we again continue straight on a descending road which also leads towards the village Ortnek. With a view on surrounding hills, and in good visibility also on Snežnik, we quickly get to the right turn, where we continue straight on a marked cart track in the direction of Sveta Ana. The cart track or a little further, the footpath gradually passes into the forest and crosses slopes of Vrbovec. After few minutes, we reach another cart track, on which we continue in the direction of Sveta Ana, and we walk there for a short time because a marked path from there soon turns slightly to the right (this part isn't well-marked). Next follows few minutes of walking through the forest and then on another cart track we descend to a macadam road which we follow to the left (right - Velike Poljane and Ortnek).
From the spot, where we step on the road for quite some time, we still continue with a diagonal ascent through the forest and then we get to a little bigger crossroad, where we continue straight in the direction of Sveta Ana (on the road sharply left, we can get to Kompolje or Rapljevo). Next follows few minutes of a light to moderate ascent, and then the path after an indistinct saddle between the peaks Tisovec (931 meters) and Špičnik (926 meters) starts descending. Next follows few minutes of descent, and then signs for Sveta Ana point us to the left on a little worse road which starts ascending steeper (a wider road which we leave leads towards Ribnica). On an ascending road we walk few minutes, and then blazes lead us a little more to the right on a marked footpath which continues through the forest. When the path after few minutes entirely flattens, we reach the cart track and we follow it to the left, where we walk by the edge of a smaller valley, where in spring time grows a wild garlic.
Somewhere in the middle of a small valley, a relatively well-marked path turns right and passes on slopes of the peak Stene svete Ane. Few minutes we are ascending relatively steeply towards the right, and then signs for Sveta Ana from the cart track point us sharply to the left on even a little steeper footpath. Next follows a relatively steep ascent, and then after few minutes, the path flattens and in few additional strides it brings us to the spot, where a short path branches off to the left, which leads towards the nearby viewpoint.
From the viewpoint, we return to the mentioned crossing, and from there we continue in the direction of Sveta Ana. Next follows a short crossing, and then from the left joins the path from the settlement Struge, and few steps ahead, the path branches off to the right to the summit Stene svete Ane (straight - mountain hut Koča pri Sveti Ani on Mala gora).
From the crossing follows a minute of walking and we reach the peak, on which there is situated a geodetic tower.
From the top, we descend few 10 strides to the last crossing, and from there we continue in the direction of Sveta Ana, on the path which gradually starts lightly descending. The path slowly widens into a cart track, on which in good 10 minutes we get to the mountain hut Koča pri Sveti Ani on Mala gora.
For a nice view it is worth to walk also to the nearby church, from where a view opens up towards Ribnica and Velika gora.
