Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Podnart (Ljubelj), and then we continue driving on the road towards Ljubelj and Tržič. When "fast road" ends (blue sign), we will on the right side notice gas station, in front of which we turn right downwards towards Tržič. Further, we drive through Tržič, and we follow the narrower road towards the gorge Dovžanova soteska and then through the village Dolina and Jelendol to Medvodje, where we park on a marked parking lot by the nearby crossroad.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we continue on the left road in the direction of Košutnikov turn, Dolga njiva and Košutna (right - waterfall Stegovniški slap). We first walk on a marked road, by which the blazes are rare, and we are all the time ascending by the stream Košutnik. When the macadam road turns sharply right and crosses a stream, we leave the marked path which continues along the stream and we still continue walking on the road. Next follows a diagonal ascent towards the right, and when the road turns left and passes on the broad ridge of Črna peč, we leave it and we continue right on a cart track which at first lightly descends, and then it starts ascending steeper on slopes of Medvodnica, and at the crossings we continue straight and we follow a wider cart track. When higher a wider cart track turns right upwards, we continue straight on an older cart track, and there in few minutes we ascend to the saddle between Črna peč on the left and Medvodnica on the right.
On the saddle, where we step on the road we continue right on a cart track (on the road which we reach, we can descend to the starting point, and the roads left and right soon end), which starts ascending right from the ridge of Medvodnica.
Next follows a moderate ascent on a cart track, from which a little further a nice view opens up towards Košuta, and a little higher we reach the ridge of Medvodnica, where the cart track narrows a little. Next follows few minutes of walking to the end of the cart track, and from there in few steps we ascend on an indistinct peak of Medvodnica.
