Access to starting point:
From the road Idrija - Tolmin we drive to Cerkno, where we park on one of the parking lots in the center, or periphery of the town (best near the church of St. Ana).
Path description:
From the church of St. Ana in Cerkno, past the snack bar Okrepčevalnica pr'Jušku and store Merkur we walk to the street Pot v Strano, where there is the beginning of a marked path which leads towards Planina pri Cerknem, Škofje and Ermanovec. We go on the mentioned street upwards, and after few meters we continue on the right road which starts ascending steeper. The road at the last house ends, and we continue on a cart track which is diagonally ascending. Blazes then lead left, and the path brings us on a panoramic grassy slope, from which a nice view opens up on Cerkno and surrounding hills.
We still continue on a cart track, and at the crossings we follow the signs of the mountain path number 5. A moderately steep path is slowly moving away from Cerkno, and with nice views on surroundings it quickly brings us to an asphalt road which we only cross. We continue the ascent in the same direction, and further we are ascending on a worse cart track, on which in few minutes of additional walking, we get to the village Planina pri Cerknem.
Through the village, in the middle of which stands the church of St. John the Baptist, we walk on a diagonally-ascending cart track which few times crosses an asphalt road, and in doing so, we walk also through some yards. Above the bottom part of the village, we get to a macadam road, on which in few minutes we walk to a smaller crossroad. Here we continue left upwards, where we quickly get to the "last" house in the village.
Above the house, we continue on at first a wide cart track which quickly passes into the forest, and we continue there few minutes. A little higher we leave the cart track and we continue left on a marked and wide mountain path which starts ascending steeper. A little higher we get to a macadam road, where the path branches off to the left towards hospital Franja, and we continue straight and after a short steep ascent we step on an asphalt road, on which we walk to the next marked crossing.
At the crossing, we continue left (right - Ermanovec and Lajše) and we continue on a shorter grassy slope into the forest (we continue on a footpath and not on the nearby cart track). Further, we are ascending by the edge of the forest, and the path leads us just by the wide grassy slope of Škofje. Higher, the path brings us out of the forest on a panoramic grassy ridge, where it turns to the right and it is then ascending on a more and more panoramic ridge. Next follows a gentle and very panoramic walk on a grassy ridge (a nice view towards Kojca and Porezen), and then the path passes into the forest and after few minutes of additional walking brings us to the summit of Škofje.
On the way: Planina pri Cerknem (564m)
