Access to starting point:
A) From Cerknica or Nova vas na Blokah at first we drive to Bloška Polica, from there we continue driving in the direction of Lož and Babno Polje. In the settlement Pudob we turn right in the direction of Snežnik, Ilirska Bistrica, Knežak and nearby settlement Kozarišče. In Kozarišče we continue slightly left in the direction of Snežnik and also in the next crossroads, we follow the road in the direction of Snežnik. When Kozarišče ends, ends also an asphalt, and we immediately after the bridge through Mali Obrh we continue left in the direction of Mašun and Knežak. Next follows a long drive on a macadam road, on which after approximately 19 km from Kozarišče we get to a crossroad, where from the right side joins the road from Mašun. Here we continue left in the direction of Sviščaki, to where we have approximately 10 km of the macadam, at the crossroads we follow the signs for Sviščaki. After approximately 29 km of the macadam road we get to the mountain hut Planinski dom na Sviščakih, where we park.
B) We drive into Pivka, from there we continue driving towards Knežak. In Knežak at the marked crossroad we continue left in the direction of Mašun and settlement Bač and Koritnice. A little further, we go right in the direction of Mašun and Koritnice (straight Bač). After Koritnice the road starts considerably ascending, and after 18 km from the main crossroad in Knežak brings us to Mašun, from where we continue driving right in the direction of Sviščaki, to where we have for approximately 12 km of the macadam road. When we get to Mountain hut Planinski dom na Sviščakih we park.
C) First, we drive to Ilirska Bistrica, and then we continue driving towards Sviščaki (turn off is in the middle of Ilirska Bistrica and is marked, maybe it is a little poorly noticeable). At first, we are ascending on an asphalt road, and then after a little less than 12 km of ascent an asphalt is changed to a macadam. Next follows approximately 7 km of the macadam, and then we get to a crossroad right next to a mountain hut Planinski dom na Sviščakih, where we continue straight towards the nearby mountain hut, where we park.
Path description:
From the parking lot at the mountain hut Dom na Sviščakih we continue on the road which goes through a meadow. On the other side of the meadow, we leave the road and we ascend on a grassy slope in the direction of Snežnik. Already after few minutes of walking, we again come on the road and we follow it to a crossroad, where we continue on the left road. The road then after few ten strides it brings us to a parking lot at the chapel.
Here signpost for Snežnik points us on a cart track which is moderately ascending through the forest. After 15 minutes the cart track descends a little and crosses a forest road. On the other side of the road it again starts ascending, after that steepness decreases. Cart track then past a cross brings us on the forest road, where there is a crossing.
We continue on a bad road in the direction of Snežnik, which after 15 minutes brings us to the spot, where the road ends. Here a nice view opens up towards the summit of Snežnik. Signpost then points us on a nice footpath which is ascending among dwarf pines in traverse below Mali Snežnik. More panoramic path brings us on the ridge, where the path on Mali Snežnik branches off to the left. We continue right and in ten minutes we reach the cottage on Snežnik.
From the cottage and to the top we have only few steps.
