Path description:
From the starting point, we continue on the road by which we've parked, and next to it at first runs learning path Olševek, so by the path, we notice some learning boards. Learning path in the next crossroad turns left, and we continue on the bottom road which continues straight, and from there blazes soon point us to the left in the forest. We continue the ascent through a dense forest, and the path partly leads us on forest cart tracks, partly on forest footpaths, and at the crossings we follow the blazes. Higher, the path brings us on a wider cart track which we follow to the right, and from there for some time a view opens up a little. After the panoramic part cart track for some time steeply ascends, and then we join the marked path from Adergas.
We continue left, where the path leads past "šterne", and then the path a little ahead flattens on a smaller saddle, where there is a crossing, and by it signposts for Olševek, Adergas and Možjanca.
We continue on the left cart track (far right path leads to a small church of St. Štefan on Štefanja gora, from which we soon go left on a well-beaten, but unmarked footpath. A little further, the path out of the forest brings us on a meadow, from which a nice view opens up towards Kalški greben and Krvavec. When the path returns into the forest, only a short ascent follows and the path brings us to the top of Apnišče.
From the top, we continue straight on the path which starts descending towards the saddle between Apnišče and Štefanja gora. At first, we are descending through the forest, then for some time through a panoramic meadow, and then again through the forest. When we are in the forest, we join the cart track which we follow to the right, and there in few additional strides, we get to a marked crossing.
From the crossing, we continue slightly right on the path on which doesn't point any of the nearby signs (slightly left settlement Štefanja Gora, sharply right Olševek and Adergas) and it starts ascending.
The path ahead moderately ascends on an indistinct ridge, from which we almost unnoticeably pass on a quite gentle slope. A little further, the path splits and we choose the right path (path straight leads past the agrotourism and is slightly longer), on which in few minutes of additional walking, we ascend to the church of St. Štefan on the top of Štefanja gora.
