Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Lesce, where at the roundabout, we go on the old road in the direction of Žirovnica and Jesenice. After few km of driving, we drive past a crossroad, where the road branches off to the right in Žirovnica. When we drive past the viaduct Završnik, we notice on the right side a turn off, on which we go (we turn sharply right). Immediately we run into a smaller crossroad, where we go left, and at the next (after approx 50 meters) right, in the direction of Završnik. After a short descent, the road for some time ascends a little, after that flattens, and it brings us to the spot, where the macadam branches off to the left towards the mountain hut Valvasorjev dom. Here, we park somewhere nearby.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we go on a macadam road which leads to the left towards the mountain hut Valvasorjev dom, and we follow it good 5 minutes, whereupon on the left side of the road, we get to a gate of a grazing fence, which the marked path on this spot crosses. So we go left through the pasture, where we soon cross the stream Rečica, and we continue towards the west through a meadow into the forest. Here the cart track at first for a short time quite steeply ascends, and when it flattens, we get to a signpost which pointing right on a little narrower sand path, which soon turns left towards the north. The path again widens and gets appearance of an old, hardened, rocky cart track. After approx 45 minutes of walking, it brings us to the road, on which we continue left, in the direction of Potoška planina (signpost) additional 5 minutes. When we get to a little bigger right turn, on both sides of the road, we notice two smaller yellow signs "pozor energetski kabel" (caution electric cable). Here, on the left side we look for a forest footpath, we leave the road, and we descend a little on the path to a wide ridge, on which we quickly come below the peak of Smolnik. Follows few steps of ascent to an open grassy peak, where on a sunny part there are two bigger benches.
