Access to starting point:
A) First, we drive to Škofja Loka, and then we continue driving towards Železniki, Podbrdo and Tolmin. When we get to Podbrdo we park on an appropriate place in the center of the settlement.
B) From the road Idrija - Most na Soči, at settlement Bača pri Modreju we turn right, or left, if we come from the direction of Posočje and we continue driving towards Podbrdo. When we get to Podbrdo we park on an appropriate place in the center of the settlement.
Path description:
From the center of Podbrdo we continue by the main road towards Železniki, where the path at first leads past the kindergarten and primary school Simon Kos Podbrdo. Some 10 meters ahead, at the smaller crossroad we continue left towards the parish church of St. Miklavž in Podbrdo, where opposite of TIC Podbrdo we notice the first mountain signposts for Bača pri Podbrdu and Vrh Bače (nearby are also signs for mountain maraton of 4 municipalities (GM4O)). A little further, the road on which we walk turns a little to the left over a small bridge (straight cemetery) and starts ascending diagonally above the riverbed of river Bača. The asphalt soon ends, and the road after a wooden religious symbol brings us to a marked crossing, where a marked footpath branches off to the left towards Vrh Bače (path through Bača pri Podbrdu), and we still continue on the road, by which there are still signs for GM4O. On a smaller plain, the road turns right and splits into two parts. On the left path (at first road) it is possible to come to the settlement Bača pri Podbrdu, and here as well we continue straight, this time on the road which gradually passes on the left bank of river Bača. A little further from the marked crossroad we continue left in the direction of GM4O (straight - Petrovo Brdo).
Further, we are ascending on a macadam road which at first makes a right hairpin turn, and in the middle of the next left hairpin turn, we leave it and we continue straight on a cart track (if we continue on the road, we get to the nearby homestead). The path ahead leads us on a cart track or old road and is for some time ascending diagonally towards the right, higher where from the right joins another path we go sharply left. Next follows a diagonal ascent, where we go for some time through more grassy part, where below the path we also notice an old hayloft, and a wide path, an old road then starts ascending in longer hairpin turns. Higher, we get to a decaying structure of Rapallo border, after which we leave the wider path and we continue right on a slope, where on a worse footpath we ascend on few minutes distant saddle east from Kup.
Here we reach the path from Petrovo Brdo, and we go right and in a minute or two, we ascend on a panoramic peak.
