Access to starting point:
From Logatec we drive towards Idrija. Only a little after the village Kalce we will notice a road which goes left in the direction of village Podkraj and Col. We go on this quite winding road and we follow it to the village Podkraj. We park on a smaller parking lot by the road right next to sign for the end of the village Podkraj (by parking lot are also hiking signposts).
From Primorska we at first drive to Col, and then we continue driving in the direction of village Podkraj. When the road brings us to the beginning of the village we don't continue right in the village, but we continue on the left upper road which bypasses the center of the village. Near the sign for the beginning Podkraj we park on a smaller parking lot by the road.
Path description:
From the starting point, we go on an ascending cart track in the direction of Sveti Duh and Javornik. Cart track already after few steps turns to the right and then it is ascending diagonally through a grassy slope. Higher, we pass into a short lane of a forest, after which the path brings us to a marked crossing, where we continue right in the direction of Javornik (left Sveti Duh and Križna gora). The path ahead is ascending gently by the edge of the forest and then it brings us to the cottage Izakova koča (smaller emergency bivouac), which is located a little left from the path.
A little above the bivouac we come to a crossing of several cart tracks. We continue straight (direction Javornik) on a partly rocky cart track and we follow it few minutes, after that at a smaller crossing (marked) we continue slightly right on a grassy cart track which leads us past old military bunker. We bypass the bunker on the left side, and then the path brings us by the edge of a grazing fence. We for some time continue by the grazing fence, and then we get to an orientational problem. The path turns right downwards, basically in the direction from which we came from, and after a short descent left in the forest. Ahead we pass into a dense forest and we are for some time moderately ascending on a quite overgrown cart track. Next follows a short descent and the path brings us to a macadam road which we follow to the left. The road soon comes out of the forest on ample grassy slopes, in the middle of which we come to a crossing.
We continue straight (right Javornik) on the macadam road which soon returns into the forest and higher brings us to a smaller saddle, where from the right side joins the marked path, which comes from Streliški vrh. We continue on the road which soon ends and changes into gradually increasingly steep cart track. Cart track higher flattens, and blazes point us slightly left on a footpath, at first it bypasses a smaller clearing, and then passes into a dense forest, where it starts ascending steeply. Higher, we come to a nice vantage point, which is situated on some sort of the secondary peak of Srednja gora. From the vantage point, we continue on a relatively gently sloping mountain path, which after few minutes of additional walking through the forest brings us to the highest point of Srednja gora.
