Access to starting point:
First, we drive to Horjul (to here from Dobrova at Ljubljana or Vrhnika), and then we continue driving towards Vrzdenec, Šentjošt and Gorenja vas. At Vrzdenec the road starts ascending steeper, and then a little further it brings us to hairpin turn, in the middle of which road branches off to the left towards Šentjošt and Smrečje. We continue right on the main road, and it soon brings us on a small saddle, at the end of which road branches off to the right towards the village Samotorica. We continue straight, and the road starts steeply descending and after a short descent it brings us to a hamlet Ljubljanica (bottom part of Butajnova), where we come to the next crossroad. Because in the mentioned hamlet there aren't any appropriate parking spots, we go right and we continue driving towards Polhov Gradec. After a good 100 meters of additional driving, we will notice on the right side suitable place, where we can park.
To the starting point, we can come also from the direction Polhov Gradec and Gorenja vas.
Path description:
From the starting point, we at first walk to a hamlet Ljubljanica, and then at the crossroad we continue in the direction of Gorenja vas. Only few meters ahead, we will notice by the road mountain signposts for Butajnova, Planina and Setnik, which point us sharply right on an ascending asphalt road. Further, we are for some time ascending on the mentioned road, and then blazes point us on a marked footpath.
From the spot, when we leave the road, we at first ascend on a cart track, and then it changes into quite overgrown footpath, on which we quickly return on the road. On the road, we step right at the smaller crossroad, where a road branches off to the left towards Kurja vas, and we continue straight on an ascending road, on which we quickly get to Butajnova.
Only a little after the fire station and chapel in Butajnova, a road branches off to the right, on which in a minute of additional walking, we get to the church of St. Ana in Butajnova.
From the church, we return on the road few 10 meters back, and then we continue on the road towards the northern part of the village. We soon come to a marked crossroad, where we continue left in the direction of Planina. Ahead road bypasses also the last houses, and then it continues in a gentle ascent through an ample pastures. A little higher road passes into the forest, where for some time it is still slightly to moderately ascending, and after we bypass a quarry it entirely flattens. And we soon step out of the forest on meadows of Planina nad Horjulom. More panoramic road, then in a gentle ascent brings us to the village, where blazes point us to relatively steep cart track, on which in few minutes of additional walking, we ascend to the church of St. Andrej.
From the church, we continue towards the northwest and we quickly descend to an asphalt road which we reach at the chapel. From the chapel we continue right and in few minutes we get to a hamlet Zameja, where blazes point us to the left on a side road which after the last farm changes into a cart track, and in a gentle ascent it leads us through the pasture. On the second part of the pasture, the cart track starts vanishing, and we continue slightly left to the edge of the forest, where we join the path through the forest.
We continue straight or before the forest slightly right, where a wide footpath appears. The path ahead leads through the forest, where we walk on and by the ridge of Zlatni vrh, and hill Gabrovo with a quarry we bypass on the right side. Next follows some more of a light descent and past a bigger chapel we reach an asphalt road which at the crossroad we only cross and we continue on a footpath in the direction of a hiking path (left downwards - Lučine, left upwards - some farms, slightly right - Lomovec and Sivka on the road - the road doesn't lead to the top), by which we higher notice few signs with the caption Prijatelji Sivke. After few minutes of ascent the forest ends and to the top we have only a little bit of walking on panoramic upper slope of the mountain.
Right from the peak is situated mountaineering inscription box, and left from the peak inscription box of Prijatelji Sivke (Friends of Sivka).
