Access to starting point:
A) First, we drive to Škofja Loka, and then we continue driving in the direction of Železniki and Tolmin. Few kilometers after Zali Log we get to a crossroad at Podrošt, where we continue straight in the direction of Sorica and Soriška planina (left Petrovo Brdo and Tolmin). When above Sorica from the left joins the road from Petrovo Brdo we continue right, and then towards Soriška planina we drive only to a crossroad, where roads towards Zgornje and Spodnje Danje branch off to the right. We park on an appropriate place by the road. Lately because of reconstruction of road Podrošt - Sorica, the road is often closed. In this case, we use detour, namely so that at Podrošt we continue in the direction of Tolmin, and then at the first crossroad right. On quite steep road we get to Sorica, where we join back the main road towards Soriška planina.
B) From the direction Baška grapa we drive to Petrovo Brdo, and from there we continue left towards Soriška planina. A little after we join the road from Sorica, we get to a crossroad, where roads towards Zgornje and Spodnje Danje branch off to the right. We park on an appropriate place by the road.
C) From Bohinjska Bistrica we continue driving towards Soriška planina, and from there we start descending towards Sorica. When after few kilometers of descent roads towards Zgornje and Spodnje Danje branch off to the left, we park on an appropriate place by the road.
Path description:
From the starting point, we continue on the road in the direction of Zgornje Danje and Ratitovec, from which at first a view opens up towards the church of St. Marko in Spodnje Danje, after the crossing of power line road passes into the forest, through which is ascending diagonally. After few minutes from the road a wide cart track branches off slightly to the left, on which we continue a diagonal ascent. At first cart track runs by the road, and then it goes a little away from it. On few crossings we continue straight and we stick to diagonal ascent towards the right. A little higher, on a short a little more panoramic part, from the right joins also cart track which leads from the village Spodnje Danje, and we still continue in the same direction. After the mentioned crossing, the cart track becomes a little steeper, and it also passes on a steeper slope. Further, the cart track is turning more and more to the left, then quickly passes into a smaller valley, through which we reach the forest road which leads from Soriška planina towards Valantov rob.
When we reach the road, we follow it to the left, and there we start at first gently, and then moderately ascending. After a longer left turn the road for some time becomes straight. At the beginning of right hairpin turn in the direction of straight cart track branches off, on which we continue. A little further, on a smaller broad ridge an overgrown cart track branches off to the right, which leads towards the summit Tonderškofel, and we continue straight, and about a minute ahead once again straight. When higher the cart track ends we continue right on a bad, but followable footpath, on which in two minutes of additional walking, we ascend on panoramic Erbelc.
