Access to starting point:
A) From highway Ljubljana - Koper we go to the exit Brezovica, and then we continue driving in the direction Podpeč (to Podpeč we can also come from Črna vas or Ig). In Podpeč we continue in the direction of Borovnica, Krim and Rakitna and continue driving for a short time by the edge of Ljubljana marshes, and then signs for Rakitna point us to the left on a steep ascending road. The road then leads us through Preserje, where it also starts descending. After a short descent, we continue left in the direction of Krim and Rakitna, and then mostly ascending road we follow to a crossroad, where the road towards Krim branches off to the left. At the crossroad there's enough space, where we can park.
B) First, we drive to Cerknica, and then we continue driving in the direction of Begunje, when we get to Begunje we follow the signs for Rakitna. From Rakitna we continue driving on the main road towards the settlement Preserje, and we are driving there to the crossroad, where a road towards Krim branches off to the right. At the crossroad there's enough space, where we can park.
Path description:
From the starting point, we continue on a macadam road in the direction of Krim, to where it is by signs 8 km. The road from bushes quickly passes into the forest and is relatively gently ascending, at first on slopes of the peak Reber (923 meters), after that also on slopes of Županov vrh (999 meters). After approximately half an hour of walking, we get to a longer left turn, where almost unnoticeably we cross the upper part of forested Lepa dolina. From the mentioned turn on the road, by which from the starting point, we only noticed some old, partly already faded blazes, we get to a marked crossing, where signs for Rakitna point us to the right (straight further on the road Krim) on an ascending footpath which continues through the forest. After a short ascent, we step on a rough cart track and we follow it to the right. A gently sloping cart track continues through an indistinct small valley between Rotovc (964 meters) on the left and Županov vrh (999 meters) on the right. Few minutes ahead, the cart track splits into two parts namely on more noticeable and marked left cart track and less distinct right unmarked cart track.
From the mentioned crossing, we continue on a worse right cart track, by which usually stands a smaller cairn. Old hard to follow cart track a little further turns slightly to the right and changes into at first hard to follow footpath which on an indistinct ridge of Županov vrh joins the footpath from the saddle (path from Rakitna through saddle). From here ahead the footpath is easier to follow and also relatively well-beaten. Next follows a little steeper path which leads us through occasionally more thin forest, and which was like most of other forests in Slovenia in the beginning of February 2014 damaged by sleet. A little below the summit, when we are still in the forest, the footpath again splits into two parts. We continue left over a smaller grazing fence and after few steps, we step out of the forest on an ample Županov vrh. The highest point is located little before transmitter tower, which we notice when we step out of the forest, there (on the summit) stands trigonometric point. Because the peak is an ample, for a view on different sides we have to walk a little on the summit.
Trip can be extended to: Rotovc ( 15 min)
