Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Lipce and follow the road ahead in the direction of Jesenice. When we come to the traffic light crossroad, where we join an old road, we continue right in the direction of Žirovnica. And we follow this road only a short time because at the next little larger crossroad (traffic light) we continue left in the direction of Javorniški Rovt. The road then goes through the underpass (railway) and then turns left (right Koroška Bela). The road that higher starts ascending steeply we follow in the direction of Javorniški Rovt, but only to a crossroad, where in sharp the left turn, the road branches off to the right (straight) towards the mountain hut Dom Trilobit and source of Javornik (prohibited for buses). A little further, the road brings us to the mentioned mountain hut and artificial lake at hydropower plant Javornik. We park on the unmarked parking lot, which is situated behind the lake and mountain hut Dom Trilobit (parking in front of the mountain hut isn't allowed).
Path description:
From the parking lot, we go on a cart track in the direction of natural and mining learning trail. Cart track immediately starts relatively steeply ascending on the left side of the stream, which we hear in our vicinity. The path soon brings us to a wooden pole on which signpost for mountain pasture Seča point us on a slightly left path (right source of Javornik and mountain pasture Stamare). The cart track then brings us near the stream by which it is ascending to the source (one of sources of the stream Javornik). After the source cart track turns into a footpath which is occasionally relatively steeply ascending, on mostly quite overgrown forest. The path then gets closer to a wall and before it, it turns left. Next follows even less steep ascent to a bench, which isn't in the best condition. The path ahead is ascending through a thinner forest so that occasionally nice views open up on surroundings. A little further, we will on the right side notice some kind of amphitheater with a name Rida (right leads unmarked and quite an overgrown path towards Belščica). And our path turns left and after a short not steep ascent we get to the signposts at the beginning of the mountain pasture Seča.
Here we continue right in the direction of Stol and Vajnež (left Struška and Golica) on the path which is further gently ascending on partly grassy and dwarf pined slopes. Next follows a short descent and the path brings us to the scree, which surround cirque Rida. Ahead in a gentle diagonal ascent we cross landslide slopes (in the main part on a short section danger of falling stones) and on the other side of Rida we ascend a level higher. Ahead steepness decreases and a more panoramic path brings us by the peak of almost unnoticeable Kamnitnik (1 minute). The path ahead in a gentle ascent crosses slopes towards the east and a little further it crosses a little more distinct gully.
Still gentle and a more panoramic path eventually brings us to a marked crossing, where left upwards unmarked path branches off on Vajnež (20 minutes), and we continue straight on the path which turns slightly to the right and after few steps of descent brings us into a small valley between Vajnež and Potoški Stol (near the saddle Vajneževo sedlo). The path mentioned small valley only crosses and then steeply ascends towards the ridge of Potoški Stol. On the ridge marked path turns left, and we follow it to the spot, where it leaves the ridge. We continue straight on a wide and gentle ridge, all the way to the top of Potoški Stol, which we reach in few 10 strides of walking.
From the top, we can descend few ten meters to the cross on Potoški Stol. In fog we will hardly find the cross.
The starting point - Planina Seča 2:00, Planina Seča - Potoški Stol 2:00.
On the way: Planina Seča (1698m), Vajneževo sedlo (1972m)
Trip can be extended to: Weinasch/Vajnež , Hochstuhl/Stol ( 30 min)
