Access to starting point:
A) From Dobrova, Horjul or Gorenja vas we drive to Polhov Gradec, there from the main crossroad we continue in the direction of Črni Vrh. After a short ascent, we get to Polhov Gradec mansion, where the road leads us through walls, after that behind the wall we turn left and we park on an appropriate place by the road, where there are also hiking signposts (smaller parking lot is also before the wall of Polhov Gradec mansion).
B) From Črni Vrh we descend in Polhov Gradec, there before the wall we turn right and we park on an appropriate place by the road.
Path description:
From the starting point, we continue on a narrower asphalt road in the direction of ski jumping hills (right beekeeping center and Sveti Lovrenc), and it leads by the edge of nicely settled castle park. After few minutes, we get to a marked crossing, where the path branches off to the right on Sveti Lovrenc (Polhograjska gora) - path past castle water catchment, and we continue straight, still on an asphalt road. Some 10 strides ahead, at the smaller crossroad we continue right, and then we walk past few more houses, and behind them asphalt slowly ends. Macadam road is further ascending on panoramic slopes, from which a nice view opens up on Polhov Gradec and surrounding hills, and a little ahead we get to a smaller crossroad, where we continue on the bottom road (right Sveti Lovrenc).
After the crossroad, the road passes into the forest and then crosses the stream Ilov graben. After the small stream the road steeply ascends, and then it brings us out of the forest, where leads us past a religious symbol (cross), by which there are situated bench and table. Next follows a shorter descent, and then we get to the first houses in Praproče, where we again step on asphalt. After some houses, at the stop sign we continue right, after that few steps ahead, at the crossing of a torrent left on an asphalt road (straight marked path on Sveti Lovrenc). On the asphalt road, we ascend past the chapel, which is situated on a panoramic hill, and behind the chapel we gradually start ascending to the main part of Praproče, where another path branches off to the right towards Sveti Lovrenc.
We continue straight, and then past another smaller chapel we get to a marked crossroad, where we go on at first still asphalt road in the direction of Mali vrh. The road at first slightly descends, and then it brings us on a panoramic grassy ridge, from which a nice view opens up towards Koreno and Črni vrh. We continue on an ascending road which past a hamlet with few houses brings us to the edge of the forest.
After few minutes of additional walking, the road splits into two parts. Right leads towards Setnik, and we continue on a slightly left, which after a short ascent brings us to a water supply structure, after which joins the unmarked path from the church of St. Martin.
We go right and we continue the ascent on often quite muddy cart track which we follow to the upper grassy slope of Mali vrh. When we step out of the forest, to the top separates us only a short walk on the more and more scenic path.
The starting point - Praproče 45 minutes, Praproče - Mali vrh 35 minutes.
