Access to starting point:
From Horjul or Dobrova we drive to Polhov Gradec, and then we continue driving towards Črni vrh. Right at the spot, where we notice the sign for the end of Polhov Gradec, we continue right in the direction of Mačkov graben and church of St. Uršula. Only a little after the crossroad we park on one of the parking lots by the road.
Path description:
From the starting point, we continue on the asphalt road which soon brings us to a crossroad, where we continue right in the direction of Setnica (straight Mačkov graben). We continue the ascent on a little steeper road which after few minutes of walking, it brings us to the spot, where we leave it. Because blazes point us slightly to the left on a footpath which starts ascending steeper through the forest. After few minutes of additional walking, we step out of the forest and the path brings us to open door farm.
We continue on a marked path, which past houses brings us to a poorly marked crossing of cart tracks (or bad roads).
We continue slightly right, on a cart track, that starts slightly ascending and goes already after few steps in the forest. Soon after we step into the forest, signposts for Grmada point us to the left on a footpath which starts ascending steeply, at first through the forest, after that over more and more panoramic grassy slopes. Higher, the path brings us on the secondary peak of Grmada, where from the right side joins other path from Polhov Gradec (over Ravnek).
The path ahead at first descends, and then passes on diverse ridge on which continues with some shorter ascents and descents. After that, the path leaves the ridge and turns a little towards the right, where it starts ascending steeper again. This path, which joins also paths from Belica and Topol we follow to a panoramic summit.
From Grmada we continue on a marked path in the direction of tourist farm Gonte and Tošč. The path immediately starts steeply descending through the forest, we even get help from some fixed safety gear (undemanding). The path then flattens, and in the next few minutes of walking, we get to tourist farm Gonte, where there is a marked crossing.
We continue on a gentle and wide cart track in the direction of Tošč. The marked path a little higher leaves the cart track and then starts ascending steeper. The path which almost entirely runs through the forest higher brings us to the summit of Mali Tošč (902m), from which path starts descending towards the saddle between the both peaks.
Further, from the right joins the path from Govejek, and we continue straight on the path which is ascending towards the summit Tošč. After approximately 15 minutes of additional walking, the path brings us on a pleasant peak.
