Access to starting point:
A) From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Ljubljana - Šmartno, and we follow the road to the mentioned settlement, where we turn right on the road which leads towards Vodice. On the mentioned road, we drive to the settlement Skaručna, where our path begins. We can park on a smaller parking lot by the cemetery or somewhere near the church.
B) From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Vodice and we continue driving towards Vodice. In the traffic light crossroad in Vodice we continue right towards Skaručna. When we get to Skaručna we need to pay attention to the right turn off, which leads to the nearby cemetery. At the cemetery is also the most appropriate place for parking.
Path description:
From the cemetery we walk to the main road, and from there we continue right towards Ljubljana. After approximately 100 meters of walking, we will get to a kindergarten, near of which there is church of St. Lucija. Only 10 meters after kindergarten, we leave the main road and we continue right on a macadam road, on which we quickly get to overpass over the highway. From the overpass or already a little before a nice view opens up on Šmarna gora on the left and Kamnik Savinja Alps on the right side. Immediately after the bridge we go left and we continue on a macadam road which leads us parallel with the highway. When we get very close to highway rest area Povodje, the road turns slightly right in the forest. On the road, by which we already notice first blazes, we walk only a short time because then at first rare blazes point us slightly to the left on a gentle footpath which continues through the forest. For some time we walk on entirely gentle footpath, and then the path from Rašica or Povodje joins from the left.
Here we continue straight, we cross the stream Gračenica, and then we start gently ascending. The path ahead leads us below the power line, little ahead it returns into the forest and crosses the macadam road. A little above the road we join rough cart track, on which we gradually start ascending steeper and steeper. Higher, we leave the cart track and on a little more steep path in few minutes we ascend to the path which almost circles Šmarna gora. We follow the mentioned path to the right, and over relatively steep slopes it brings us to the chapel (Turkovo znamenje).
Here we continue straight (left steep upwards Šmarna gora - steep path) and we still continue on the path which is ascending diagonally. Higher, the path turns a little more to the left and out of the forest brings us on grassy slopes. Here at first we cross a grazing fence, after that with a view on Grmada we walk to a crossing, where we join the rough road which leads to the summit of Šmarna gora. The mentioned road, we follow to the left and there in few minutes we ascend to the peak.
