Access to starting point:
A) From highway Koper - Ljubljana we go to the exit Postojna, and then we drive towards the center of Postojna. In the mentioned settlement we will notice signs for Pečna reber and railway station, which point us to the right, after that approximately 200 meters before the railway station we turn left (crossroad isn't marked) on the road which soon leads over the highway. On the other side of the highway we come on a crossroad, where a road towards Stara vas branches off to the right, and we continue in the direction of Javornik and Sveta Trojica. A little further, by the monument of NOB, the road towards Pečna reber branches off to the left, and we continue on a slightly right road. Further, we drive on a macadam road, from which soon a marked path towards Sveta Trojica branches off to the right, and we go straight and we continue driving to approximately 2.5 km distant crossroad, where the road and marked path towards Javorniki branches off to the left. Here we continue straight as well, the road then passes into a valley between Javorniki on the left and Baba on the right. While driving we will on the left notice bigger karst hollow (Javorniška koliševka), only a little further we will come to the next crossroad, by which we notice old wooden signs for Postojna and Sveta Trojica. At the mentioned crossroad, we park on an appropriate place by the road.
B) From highway Ljubljana - Koper we go to the exit Unec, and then we continue driving towards Unec and Cerknica. In the settlement Unec we leave the main road towards Cerknica and we continue driving right in the direction of Postojna. Further, we drive on a little narrower road which continues parallel with a highway. When after few kilometers through the underpass we get to the other side of the highway, on first crossroad we continue straight. When we again return on original side of the highway at the crossroads we continue left or in the direction of Pečna reber and Sveta Trojica. When we soon get to a crossroad, where the road towards Pečna reber branches off to the left, and to the right the road continues towards Sveta Trojica, we will between the both roads notice NOB monument. Here we go slightly right. Further, we drive on a macadam road, from which soon a marked path towards Sveta Trojica branches off to the right, and we go straight and we continue driving to approximately 2.5 km distant crossroad, where the road and marked path towards Javorniki branches off to the left. Here we continue straight as well, the road then passes into a valley between Javorniki on the left and Baba on the right. While driving we will on the left notice bigger karst sinkhole (Javorniška koliševka), only a little further we will come to the next crossroad, by which we notice old wooden signs for Postojna and Sveta Trojica. At the mentioned crossroad, we park on an appropriate place by the road.
Path description:
From the starting point, we continue right, on the road which starts slightly descending, and from there already after few steps we go right, on unmarked, but easy to follow footpath which first few steps continues quite gently, and then it starts ascending on a slope straight upwards. During the ascent, we cross few cart tracks, and the path above them turns slightly to the left and passes out of the forest. Next follows few minutes of a diagonal ascent, and then we get on an indistinct ridge of Baba, where we continue right, on a panoramic path, which in few minutes of light to of a moderate ascent, comes on an ample and panoramic grassy peak.
Description and pictures refer to a condition in the year 2015 (December).
