Path description:
From the starting point, where nearby there is a vending machine of farm Pr Šupc we continue on the road towards the village Leskovica and in the direction of hiking paths on Blegoš, Ermanovec and Slajka. Few minutes we walk by the edge of the road, partly also on a sidewalk, and then signs for Ermanovec and Slajka point us to the left (straight Blegoš), where over the bridge we cross Kopačnica, and immediately after the bridge at the church of St. Lovrenc we continue right and we gradually start ascending. At first, we are ascending past few more houses, and then signs point us sharply left, where few 10 strides we continue on a cart track, and on the meadow cart track changes into a footpath, and it turns a little to the right and leads past another house. Higher, we cross few worse cart tracks, and blazes through a lane of a little overgrown path take us to an asphalt road which we only cross. On the other side of the road, we at first ascend steeper, and then we continue on a narrower footpath which continues through a small valley, where runs also the route of a power line. From the valley we soon diagonally ascend towards the right, where we reach the ridge (here from the right joins one more footpath), and here the footpath turns to the left. A little further, we cross another cart track, and when we leave the forest we quickly ascend to an asphalt road which we follow to the right. Asphalt road then leads us past the bench, where the path branches off to the right towards Vrh Slajke, and the road which semicircular turns to the left we follow to the nearby farm, from which to the mountain hut Dom na Slajki separates us only a minute of walking.
From the hut, we return to the near farm, where we bypass the main buildings on the upper side and we continue on the macadam road which on the nearby meadow changes into a cart track. Next follows a walk through a lane of a forest, and when we leave the forest, we continue right (straight - Ermanovec) on an unmarked path, at first cart track which continues by the edge of the forest. When the forest on the right ends we continue with the ascent by the grazing fence, which leads on a grassy ridge and higher the ridge flattens and it turns left. We continue by the edge of the forest to the panoramic secondary peak, from the secondary peak we go a little right into the forest. Through the forest, we are ascending towards the west to the northwest, and by the path, we occasionally also notice some older blaze. In few minutes of ascent through the forest we reach a vegetated peak, on which there is a small cairn.
