Path description:
Few strides before the beginning of the settlement Javornik we continue on a marked path, which at first ascends on stairs, and then turns left and further it is ascending diagonally through the forest. Few minutes of ascent through the forest follows, and then we reach an asphalt road which leads towards the summit Sveti Jošt above Kranj. We follow the road to the right, and from the left soon also a marked path from Čepulje joins.
From here to the first turn we still walk on the road, and then we continue straight in the forest, through which continues a marked path. Further at first we are gently ascending, and after few crossings, where we follow the blazes, we ascend even a little steeper. The steep ascent cuts an asphalt road which leads towards the summit, and we continue straight across the road, on the path which continues on the more and more panoramic grassy slope. After further shorter ascent we reach the mountain hut Dom na Joštu, and few 10 strides ahead also church of St. Jošt.
