Access to starting point:
A) From highway Ljubljana - Novo mesto we go to the exit Trebnje east, and then we continue driving in the direction of the settlement Velika Loka. After the settlement Zidani Most we get to the settlement Štefan pri Trebnjem, where we continue sharply left in the direction of Zaplaz. After few kilometers of a partly winding road we get to Čatež, from where the road starts descending towards river Mirna. When we get into a valley we cross the bridge over the stream Dušica, where we park on an appropriate place by the crossroad.
B) From Trebnje or Mokronog we drive to Mirna, and from there we drive towards Litija. Towards Litija we go to the sharp right turn, and from there we continue left in the direction of Cirnik and Selska Gora. After Cirnik the road gradually starts descending. When we descend to a river Mirna we at first cross the bridge, and then at the crossroad we continue left. From the crossroad, we drive for approximately 200 meters, to a bridge over the stream Dušica. We park on an appropriate place by the crossroad.
C) We drive to Šmartno pri Litiji, and from there we continue driving towards Gabrovka. After the settlement Moravče pri Gabrovki, after the transformer we turn slightly right in the direction towards the gas station. Further, we drive through the valley of river Mirna. When after the turn-off for Gornje Ravne the road turns right, leaves the river Mirna and it brings us to the stream Dušica, where at the bridge over the mentioned stream we park on an appropriate place by the road.
Path description:
From the starting point at the bridge over Dušica, we go on a macadam road, by which we notice signs for the pilgrimage path (pot romarjev). We short time continue through a small valley by the mentioned stream and then at the smaller crossroad we continue on the upper right road. We continue on the road to the homestead Dule, where from the right joins also the marked path from the village Okrog.
We continue through the yard, and then behind the house, the road ends and we continue on a worse grassy cart track which leads us through a meadow. A little further, the path turns right, for some time a little steeper ascends, and then joins a wider cart track which we follow to the left. The cart track few minutes leads by the upper edge of the meadow, and then passes into the forest, where at the nearby crossing we reach the path Levstikova pot from Litija to Čatež.
We follow the mentioned path to the left, and there in two hairpin turns we descend to a smaller stream, which we cross, and then we continue crossing through the forest. While walking through the forest the path leads us past several information boards of the path Levstikova pot, and then a little after the wooden cross we come out of the forest, where we cross the next stream. At the hunting observatory, we continue left in the direction of the pilgrimage path (pot romarjev), and then we diagonally ascend through the forest, to a few minutes distant asphalt road which leads through the settlement Čatež. We follow the road to the right, and then we quickly get to a large parking lot, which is situated after the fire station.
From the parking lot, near of which there is also the end of the path Levstikova pot from Litija to Čatež, we at first ascend to the parish church of St. Mihael in Čatež, and from there behind the church we continue right and at the inn Gostilna Tončkov dom, we return to the main road which we reach at the marked crossroad. We continue the ascent on the main road which leads us past the bus stop and the tourist map, and after good 100 meters we continue right, on a steep road in the direction of Zaplaz. The road quickly flattens and it turns left, where it brings us to the edge of the forest, where there is a marked crossing.
The right path leads towards Zagrič and also towards Bajturn and Zaplaz, and we continue on the asphalt road few more 10 strides, and then a sign for the pilgrimage path goes on a grassy footpath, on which with nice views in few minutes we ascend to the church on Zaplaz.
