Path description:
Behind inn Kovač we continue right into the forest, where we immediately get to a crossing of two marked paths. We choose the left path with signs Kovačeva steza (slightly right path Westrova pot), and it starts ascending diagonally towards the left. After a short ascent, we get to the next crossing, where we continue on the left bottom path in the direction of Učna pot (learning path) (slightly right path Kovačeva steza). A little further, we join the cart track which we follow to the left, we walk there to a water storage. Immediately after the water storage we continue right into the forest (if we continue straight we descend in Spodnje Pirniče) through which we start at first only gently ascending. Further, the path leads us past the abandoned quarry, and only a little further we join a better beaten path from club Lipa.
The path continues through the forest, through which it gradually starts ascending steeper. For some time we are steeply ascending, and then the path flattens and it brings us to the spot, where we join the relatively steep road which leads from Zavrh towards Šmarna gora.
We continue the ascent on the road which further leads past NOB monument and few meters ahead also past plague or Turkish column. Higher, the road turns a little more to the left and out of the forest brings us on panoramic slopes. With a view on the summit of Šmarna gora and Kamnik Savinja Alps we quickly get to the homestead Gorjanc, from which follows a short walk to a marked crossing on the saddle Na Sedlu.
Here we continue left still on the road, and it soon splits into two parts. We can continue the ascent on the road, in this case, we get to the summit past a wish bell, or we continue right on a marked footpath which past the chapel of St. Sobota, also brings us to the summit of Šmarna gora.
On the way: Na Sedlu (580m)
