Path description:
At the beginning of the parking lot, we go on a footpath which goes by the fence of retirement home upwards. The path here steeply ascends through the forest and in a little less than 10 minutes brings us to a crossing at Senčnica Josipine Turnograjske. If we continue right there is only few steps to Senčnica where there is an inscription book and some benches.
The path from the crossing becomes gentle and soon brings us on a macadam road where there are also signposts. We continue left on the road and we follow it in a gentle descent to a bigger crossroad, where from the left joins also the road which leads from the parking lot near the Senior citizens home Preddvor and bypasses Senčnica Josipine Turnograjske.
At the crossroad we go right on a cart track by which there are signposts. After a short ascent on the mentioned cart track, we are again at the crossing, where we go right. The left path goes on castle Novi grad. We follow the right path ahead through the forest few more minutes, and then we cross a macadam road which also leads on Jakob. The further path is for quite some time still relatively steeply ascending through the forest and few more times crosses the macadam road. Higher, the path becomes a little more panoramic and when we for the last time cross the macadam road we already have a very nice view towards the church of St. Jakob. We still continue on a marked footpath all the way to a smaller saddle near the church where the view starts opening up also towards the north.
At the crossing where there are signposts, we continue left and only a short ascent follows to the church and mountain hut Planinska koča Iskra na Jakobu.
From the mountain hut, we return to the mentioned saddle where we go on a footpath in the direction towards Potoška gora and Javorjev vrh. The path starts ascending through the forest and after approximately 15 minutes brings us to a marked crossing.
Straight leads the path on Javorov vrh, to the left there is only a minute to the vantage point from where there is a very nice view towards Strožič, Cjanovca and Hudičev boršt. And is here go right in the direction of Potoška gora. We follow right path ahead and it brings us in parts thin forest with some views. But the path soon goes again into a dense forest. The path further is still moderately ascending and it brings us to the peak, where there is a bench (Potoška gora).
