Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Koper we go to the exit Unec and follow the road ahead in the direction of Cerknica. Further, we drive through Cerknica, Martinjak and Grahovo to the village Bloška polica, where at the crossroad we continue right in the direction of village Lož (straight Sodražica, possible also access from this side). Only a little after the village Lož we get to Stari trg pri Ložu, where we continue left in the direction of village Markovec and Vrhnika. Further, we drive on a little narrower road which past village Markovec brings us to the beginning of the village Vrhnika pri Ložu. Further, we need to pay attention because, when we will on a tree notice a mountain signpost for "Grad Snežnik - straight" we continue left on a macadam road (turn-off isn't marked, but we will notice blazes by the road). This macadam road we then follow good 100 meters to the parking lot by the road.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we continue on a macadam road which soon brings us to the right turn in the middle of which we notice a signpost for Racna gora. We continue right and the road after few minutes of walking, it brings us to the turning point of the road.
Ahead the road ends, and we continue straight on a marked cart track which goes into the forest and in a gentle ascent brings us to a crossing. We continue on the right cart track which higher flattens a little and eventually brings us to a well-marked crossing, where we leave the cart track. We continue left on a partly grassy slope, where mountain path isn't visible.
Orientation ahead becomes harder, but if we continue on a slope straight upwards we will soon notice blazes, which higher are more frequent. Steep and barely visible path higher brings us below the rocky cliffs, where it turns to the left and flattens a little. Next follows passage through a small "door" after which marked path turns right and a little higher joins the cart track which we follow to the right. After few 10 strides of walking on a cart track blazes point us to the left on a footpath which quickly joins the other cart track which comes from the end of the forest road which we can notice on our right (road comes from the village Dolenje Poljane).
We continue on a well-marked cart track which after few additional minutes brings us to a larger clearing in the middle of which we notice a hunting observatory. The path then for quite some time continues on a cart track, and we follow it to the spot, where a marked footpath points us left on a poorly beaten footpath which only a little higher joins the path from the hunting cottage Urška. We continue right on a little steeper path, which after a short ascent brings us on a vegetated peak Racna gora.
