Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice, we go on exit Lipce and we drive right towards Jesenice (at the traffic light left). Here in the center of the town we follow signposts for Podmežakla. When we drive through the underpass, we turn right, and nearby we can notice hockey hall. We drive additional 350 meters, when before highway underpass we notice parking lot. Here is our starting point.
Path description:
From the parking lot we go in underpass, on the right side of it we find first blaze. When we step through it, we notice on the left side path, which runs from the road uphill (trail blaze on asphalt). We go there, we ascend few meters and turn right (west) towards power line. Path which is at first only moderately ascending, and later more and more, after some time brings us to a crossing. Here we go left, even more steep uphill towards south. We soon reach the forest road, which through right and left turn brings us to turn off of cart track, which is steeply ascending on the right in direction southeast. We go there and we follow it for quite some time, meanwhile we ignore right turn offs of smaller shortcuts.
Winding path is occasionally ascending in zig zags a little in direction of east. When we are past bigger right turn, blazes point us on a narrower path on the right. Now we are turned in direction of southwest. From here further the path gradually in large or smaller zig zags ascending even steeper towards the top on the left. When we come below the rocks on the left, we are already near top of plateau, and here we soon run into a crossing of marked footpaths, which means, that there are available two variants.
First is straight (direction southwest); here soon, when steepness decreases we come on Zakop, where we run into a forest road, we turn left and we also notice monument and benches (smaller event venue). Second option is left (direction southeast), steeply uphill towards top of plateau, where we run into same road, which in direction of left runs towards destination. Soon the road ends, and we continue on a path in the same direction, where we ignore left turn offs of cart tracks. When the path is again ascending, we reach the forest road for the second time, which we cross (right before Škrbina). After few meters we get to the edge of plateau, here path which turns left, near the precipitous edge quickly brings us to transmitter, next to which stands brown tin shed.
