Access to starting point:
A) From a highway Ljubljana - Koper we go to the exit Postojna and follow the road ahead in the direction of Pivka, Reka and Ilirska Bistrica. In the settlement Pivka we leave the main road which runs towards Ilirska Bistrica and we continue driving towards Knežak. Only a little after Knežak, we get to the village Šembije, and behind it we turn sharply right towards Podstenje and Podtabor. After few 100 meters of additional driving, we get to a crossroad in Podtabor, which is the starting point for our tour. Because by the starting point, there aren't any appropriate parking spots, we have to park somewhere nearby, on an appropriate place by the road.
B) We drive to Ilirska Bistrica, and then we continue driving towards Knežak. Before we get to Šembije, we leave the main road and we continue left towards the village Podtabor. At the beginning of Podtabor we get to a crossroad of multiple roads, where we start our tour. Because by the starting point, there aren't any appropriate parking spots, we have to park somewhere nearby, on an appropriate place by the road.
Path description:
From the crossroad at the beginning of Podtabor, we follow the signs Podtabor, and the road immediately brings us to the next crossroad. Here we continue on the left bottom road (straight upwards Šembije), which then leads us past few houses. A little further asphalt road turns to the left, and immediately after the caption, which marks the altitude we leave it and we continue right on a parallel macadam road which quickly brings us below the steep cliffs of the nearby Brkinški rob. At first quite scenic path then brings us to tunnel, through which we continue on the macadam road. On the other side of the tunnel, the cliffs gradually change into less steep slopes, and the path ahead leads on a slightly ascending macadam road which after 10 minutes of additional walking brings us to a smaller crossroad. We go slightly right and we continue through the forest, and in doing so, we are mostly slightly ascending. Eventually, the road brings us to another rocky part, after which it gradually starts descending.
We continue on the road, and with occasional views towards the west it brings us to a smaller crossroad, where the road to Ratečevo Brdo branches off to the left, and to the right footpath towards the nearby cross by saddle Klanec. We again continue straight, and the road brings us to another turn-off to the right towards the nearby cross and saddle Klanec. This time as well we continue straight, and the path quickly brings us to the spot, where from the left joins the marked path from Narin.
The path ahead leads us past a smaller source, after which we get to turn of bad cart track to the left (if we continue on the mentioned cart track, we will get to the former Roman road which few 100 meters ahead ends).
We continue straight and past another source, in few minutes of additional walking, we walk to the church of St. Martin.
From St. Martin we return few meters back, and then we continue on an ascending road which continues towards the north. Next follows a short descent and we get to a marked crossing, where we join the path from Zagorje.
From the crossing or crossroad, we go slightly left in the village Šilentabor (right downwards Zagorje), where past few houses, we walk to the spot, where from the right also the marked path from Pivka joins.
We continue straight and past the inscription box and transmitters in few minutes we walk to the panoramic summit.
