Access to starting point:
A) We drive to Nova Gorica, and then we continue driving towards Tolmin and Kobarid. Main road towards Tolmin we follow only to Solkan, where at the traffic light crossroad we continue right in the direction of Sveta Gora and Grgar. An ascending road further leads past the quarry Solkan, after that a little higher turns sharply to the right and it brings us to inn Skalnica, behind which we first get to a crossroad, where a steep road towards Sveta Gora branches off to the left, and only a little further also to a crossroad, where the road towards Grgar, Čepovan and Banjšice branches off to the left (straight Trnovo and Lokve). After a short descent, we get to Grgar, where at the crossroad by NOB monument we continue straight to the nearby sports field by the primary school, by which we park on a large parking lot.
B) From Tolmin or Most na Soči we drive on the main road towards Nova Gorica, after that only a little before Nova Gorica, more precisely at the traffic light crossroad in Solkan we turn left in the direction of Sveta Gora and Grgar. An ascending road further leads past the quarry Solkan, after that a little higher turns sharply to the right and it brings us to inn Skalnica, behind which we first get to a crossroad, where a steep road towards Sveta Gora branches off to the left, and only a little further also to a crossroad, where the road towards Grgar, Čepovan and Banjšice branches off to the left (straight Trnovo and Lokve). After a short descent, we get to Grgar, where at the crossroad by NOB monument we continue straight to the nearby sports field by the primary school, by which we park on a large parking lot.
C) From Goriška Brda we drive to Solkan, where at the first crossroad after new Solkan bridge we continue straight in the direction of Sveta Gora. An ascending road further leads past the quarry Solkan, after that a little higher turns sharply to the right and it brings us to inn Skalnica, behind which we first get to a crossroad, where a steep road towards Sveta Gora branches off to the left, and only a little further also to a crossroad, where the road towards Grgar, Čepovan and Banjšice branches off to the left (straight Trnovo and Lokve). After a short descent, we get to Grgar, where at the crossroad by NOB monument we continue straight to the nearby sports field by the primary school, by which we park on a large parking lot.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we return to NOB monument, and from there we continue on the left road (looking from the direction of access to the starting point, if we came from the direction Nova Gorica), which from the right soon joins "shortcut" (from the parking lot we don't have to go to monument, because to here leads shorter road which starts a little before the parking lot and continues towards the west). A short time we walk on a sidewalk, and then at the spot, where the main road turns right we continue straight on a narrower asphalt road. Good 50 meters we walk on the mentioned road, and then signs for Sveta Gora point us to the left on other road, where we at first bypass "last" house, after that the road continues through a meadow. On the asphalt we walk to signs of gas line number 443, from where we continue on the left road in the direction of Sveta Gora. Only few steps ahead from the macadam road marked path on Sveta Gora over Križce branches off to the left, and we continue straight in the direction of Sveta Gora "Po sredi" (road which we leave continues to the near house - possible is also to continue on the road to lonely house).
Path ahead leads us over smaller meadow, and then it brings us to wooden footbridge through stream Slatnik, where again splits.
We continue slightly right (left over the footbridge Sveta Gora) on the path which continues along the stream Slatna. A little further, we join the cart track (cart track which continues from the above the mentioned lonely house), and then we quickly get to wooden mountain signposts.
From the crossing, we continue right in the direction of the path via Ranjeke (left Sveta Gora), and it continues on the right side (left bank) of the nearby stream. Stream Slatna, by which we walk in its riverbed carved a small gorge, several rapids and some pools. A little higher we cross the stream and then we ascend a little steeper to the nearby cart track. When we step on the cart track, we follow it to the right (badly marked), and we walk there to a wider macadam road which we only cross (left saddle Preški vrh, right Grgar). We continue on the path which is in the summer time quite overgrown, and it soon crosses the stream Slatna. On the other side of the stream, we short time continue through a lane of bushes and thin forest and then we step on another macadam road, on which we quickly get to a smaller crossroad, which is situated only few meters before the natural pool Gospodnjek.
From the crossroad before Gospodnjek, we continue on the left road which after two smaller holiday cottages changes into a cart track, and it gradually passes on the route of a gas line. Further, we are relatively steeply ascending on the route of a gas line, and from the path which meanwhile from the cart track already changed into a footpath increasingly beautiful views opening up towards Trnovski gozd and surrounding. Higher, we cross the cart track, and on the route of a gas line we continue to the sign of the gas line number 447, where we also step on some kind of saddle. Here we continue left in the forest, where we see a bad footpath, and there in few 10 strides we descend to a forest road which leads from the saddle Preški vrh towards the summit of Vodice. From the road for some time a nice view opens up towards Sveta Gora, and we walk there to the information board of outdoor museum Vodice.
Here at first right downwards a marked path branches off towards the hamlet Vodice (15 minutes), few meters further and then right leads the footpath to the monument Pri orlih (2 minutes), and to the left the path continues towards the summit of Vodice, where there stands a mausoleum of General Gonzaga.
