Access to starting point:
A) From highway Razdrto - Nova Gorica we go to the exit Ajdovščina, and then we continue driving in the direction of Col and Idrija. When we get to Col we turn left towards Predmeja and then after few meters right on a parking lot opposite of the parish church in Col. We can also park on a parking lot by nearby sports field.
B) We drive to Logatec, and from there we continue driving towards Idrija. At the end of the settlement Kalce we turn left in the direction of Podkraj and Col, after that on a little more winding road at first we get to Podkraj, and then on a little more flat road also to Cola. In Col, where we join the road from Ajdovščina we continue right, and after few 10 meters left in the direction of Predmeja. Towards Predmeja we drive only few meters, because immediately after the crossroad we turn right on a parking lot opposite of the church of St. Lenart.
C) We drive to Idrija, and then we continue driving towards Logatec. When we get to Godovič we leave the main road towards Logatec and we continue driving right in the direction of Črni Vrh, Col and Ajdovščina. When we get to Col we turn right towards Otlica and Predmeja and then once again right on the nearby parking lot opposite of the church.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we return to the main road Ajdovščina - Godovič, and then we walk there towards Godovič and Črni Vrh. Soon narrower road towards Vodice branches off to the right, on which continues a marked path towards Javornik, and we still continue by the main road. The path ahead leads us past road base CPG, and behind it brings us to the smaller crossroad, where a worse road branches off left downwards, on which leads the path on Križna gora and Špiček over Križna gora.
From here we still continue on the main road which leads us also past a religious symbol, which we notice on the right side, after that behind one house we notice signposts for Križ and Špečk, which point us to the left in the forest (to here we need approximately 15 minutes).
At the signposts, we leave the asphalt road and we at first continue through the forest with lush undergrowth, and then we cross the cart track and we continue the ascent on a moderately steep path, which a little further leads below the power line. The path continues through partly pine forest, and higher crosses one more wider cart track. Next follows few minutes of a little steeper path, and then forest starts to get thinner. At first, a view opens up only towards the nearby Hrušica and Nanos, higher when forest gets thinner, also towards more distant hills. On, in spring and summer time blooming meadows path turns right and then it is ascending diagonally towards the ridge, which is vegetated with forest. Few minutes higher, the path leads into a lane of a forest, where for a short time steeply ascends, and then continues diagonal ascent towards the summit of Špiček, which lasts until we get to the top, from which a nice view opens up, which reaches from hills, which are rising above Vipava valley, to the highest peaks of Kamnik Savinja Alps.
On the summit, by the cross on Špiček we turn left into the forest (straight the path continues towards Cenc) and on and by the forested ridge we start gently descending. The path ahead leads us past a site of wild garlic, and then slowly widens into old cart track. When the cart track turns slightly to the right, we leave it and we continue slightly left, so that we step out of the forest on the upper part of ample grassy slopes. From here follows only short barely noticeable ascent and in a minute of additional walking, we step on an indistinct peak of Križna gora.
Bench to rest is situated few steps ahead, on nice panoramic part.
On the way: Špiček (Špečk) (986m)
