Access to starting point:
A) First, we drive on Ig, and from there we continue driving in the direction of Iška vas and Iški Vintgar. Immediately after Iška vas we will come in the village Iška, where the road towards Gornji Ig and Rakitna branches off sharply to the right. We go on the mentioned ascending road, on which we drive past Gornji Ig and higher also past the turn-off of the road on Krim. Few 100 meters ahead from turn-off for Krim we get to a larger meadow, where the road flattens, and on the other side of meadow turns left and returns into the forest. Only few meters before the road passes into the forest, we will notice on the left side NOB monument and by it appropriate space for parking.
B) From highway Ljubljana - Koper we go to the exit Brezovica, and then we continue driving in the direction of Podpeč (to Podpeč we can also come from Črna vas or Ig). In Podpeč we continue in the direction of Borovnica, Krim and Rakitna and continue driving for a short time by the edge of Ljubljana marshes, and then signs for Rakitna point us to the left on a steep ascending road. The road then leads us through Preserje, where it also starts descending. After a short descent, we continue left in the direction of Krim and Rakitna, and then mostly ascending road we follow to a crossroad, where the road towards Krim branches off to the left. From the mentioned crossroad, we continue left and then we continue driving on a macadam road. When after few kilometers road comes out of the forest on a larger meadow, we will immediately at the beginning notice monument NOB and by it suitable place, where we can park.
C) First, we drive to Cerknica, and then we continue driving in the direction Begunje, when we get to Begunje we follow the signs for Rakitna. From Rakitna we continue driving on the main road towards the settlement Preserje, and we are driving there to the crossroad, where a road towards Krim branches off to the right. From the mentioned crossroad, we continue right, and then we continue driving on a macadam road. When after few kilometers road comes out of the forest on a larger meadow, we will immediately at the beginning notice monument NOB and by it suitable place, where we can park.
Path description:
From the starting point by the monument NOB we continue on a macadam road in the direction of Rakitna (if come to the starting point by description of access to the starting point B or C, we then walk in the direction from where we came from). The road already after few meters passes into the forest, through which is relatively gently descending. The road which continues mostly towards the south at first leads on a forested slopes of the peak Kamenica (1050 meters), and then turns a little right and takes us on slopes above the valley Lepa dolina. Before the macadam road makes a longer right turn, signpost for Rakitna point us to the left on a marked footpath which starts ascending through the forest. The path after few minutes joins the forest cart track, where it also flattens. Cart track continues through an indistinct small valley between Rotovc (964 meters) on the left and Županov vrh (999 meters) on the right. Few minutes ahead, the cart track splits into two parts namely on more noticeable and marked left cart track and less distinct right unmarked cart track.
From the mentioned crossing, we continue on a worse right cart track, by which usually stands a smaller cairn. Old hard to follow cart track a little further turns slightly to the right and changes into at first hard to follow footpath which on an indistinct ridge of Županov vrh joins the footpath from the saddle (path from Rakitna through saddle). From here ahead the footpath is easier to follow and also relatively well-beaten. Next follows a little steeper path which leads us through occasionally more thin forest, and which was like most of other forests in Slovenia in the beginning of February 2014 damaged by sleet. A little below the summit, when we are still in the forest, the footpath again splits into two parts. We continue left over a smaller grazing fence and after few steps, we step out of the forest on an ample Županov vrh. The highest point is located little before transmitter tower, which we notice when we step out of the forest, there (on the summit) stands trigonometric point. Because the peak is an ample, for a view on different sides we have to walk a little on the summit.
Trip can be extended to: Rotovc
