Access to starting point:
From Ljubljana, we drive on the old road towards Kranj, and we follow the mentioned road only to the first crossroad in Medvode, where we turn left (direction Preska and Golo Brdo) across the railway track (if we come from the direction Kranj at the last traffic light in Medvode we continue right). Behind the railway track we continue right in the direction of Preska, and through the mentioned settlement we drive to the fire station. At the smaller crossroad after the fire station we continue left and then we drive on the road Bergantova cesta, which past few houses we follow to the beginning of the footpath which leads on Sveti Jakob (by the starting point, there is a smaller parking lot and a trail blaze, which marks the beginning of the path). We can also park lower on an appropriate parking spot in the settlement Preska.
Path description:
From the starting point, we go right on a marked footpath which starts moderately ascending through the forest. We soon cross a wide cart track, and we go past a religious symbol (cross) and we continue in the direction of Jakob and Katarina. The path ahead mostly continues on a gentle cart track, and then blazes point us slightly to the right on a wide footpath, on which we quickly get out of the forest. When we step out of the forest, the footpath on panoramic grassy meadows gradually vanishes, and we continue in the same direction, where we soon step on a marked cart track, on which in few minutes we ascend to a nearby road.
We follow the mentioned road to the right, and through the village Studenčice it soon brings us to a marked crossing, where from the right side, the path from the village Sora joins.
We continue on the asphalt road which past NOB monument brings us to the upper part of the village Studenčice. Here the road starts ascending steeper, and then it flattens and past the abandoned quarry brings us to the village Tehovec. We continue a gentle ascent on again more panoramic slope, and we follow the asphalt road all the way to the church of St. Florijan in already mentioned village.
From the mentioned church we for some time continue on the asphalt road, and then we get to a small saddle from where we go on a wide macadam road. The mentioned road, we follow only a short time, and then blazes point us slightly to the left on the path which goes into the forest and on the left side bypasses the peak of Sveti Jakob. After few minutes of crossing, we again step out of the forest, and we join the path which comes from the village Topole. Here we continue sharply right and few 10 strides we continue on a wide cart track, and then blazes point us to the right on a steep footpath, on which by the edge of the forest in few minutes we ascend on a panoramic peak with the church of St. Jakob.
On the way: Studenčice (570m), Sveti Florijan (Tehovec) (685m)
