Access to starting point:
To the starting point, we can drive: A) from the main Slovenia we drive on the highway to exit Unec, and then we go right towards Planina. When we get to the settlement, we turn left towards Postojna, we then need to pay attention at the end of the settlement, where signposts point us to the right towards Strmca and Predjama. This road at the next crossroad we follow straight and quite soon we get to the settlement Lohača, where we turn right uphill. An asphalt road changes into a macadam, and we continue to the saddle, where there are signposts and a cross. We park nearby. B) From Primorska we drive to Postojna, where we continue towards Predjama. We drive past village Zagon, and then we turn right towards Studenec and Strmca. This road we follow to the settlement Lohača, where we turn left uphill. An asphalt road changes into a macadam, and we continue to the saddle, where there are signposts and a cross. We park nearby.
Path description:
At the starting point we turn left in the direction of Sveti Lovrenc. After approximately a minute of walking, at the rock we turn right on a grassy cart track (information board about the path). Ahead of us there is Lipovec (1005m) and a steep path, which with increasingly beautiful views brings us to the panoramic summit. Then we descend on the ridge towards the west, where we already see our destination. We descend to a saddle, where we cross the cart track (bottom path). For a short time we still continue straight upwards and then the trail blaze and cairns point us right to the secondary peak of Špilnik. We follow the path past a rope fence. Throuth visible consequences of the sleet storm after few minutes we ascend to the secondary peak, and then the path goes towards the north and we soon reach the main peak.
On the way: Lipovec (1005m)
