Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Lesce, where at the roundabout, we go on the old road in the direction of Žirovnica and Jesenice. After few km of driving, we drive past a crossroad, where the road branches off to the right in Žirovnica. When we drive past the viaduct Završnik, we notice on the right side a turn off, on which we go (we turn sharply right). Immediately we run into a smaller crossroad, where we go left, and at the next (after approx 50 meters) right, in the direction of Završnik. After a short descent, the road for some time ascends a little, after that flattens, and it brings us to the spot, where the macadam branches off to the left towards the mountain hut Valvasorjev dom. Here, we park somewhere nearby. (New parking lot is located next to an artificial lake on the right side of the road).
Path description:
From the starting point, we go on a macadam road which leads left uphill, towards the mountain hut Valvasorjev dom, and we follow it good 5 minutes, whereupon on the left side of the road, we geto to a door (gate) of a grazing fence, and captions Valvasorjev dom point us on the other side. We leave the road and we go left through the pasture, where the path soon crosses the stream Rečica. When on the other side of the stream, we step on a meadow, we turn right (straight - marked path) through the pasture uphill towards the northwest. We soon cross a grazing fence (in case if it is set), and we get to a beaten path in the forest, which is turning slightly to the left. The path which becomes gravel, starts ascending steeper through an occasionally thin forest. Eventually our path crosses a wider marked path Poljana - Valvasorjev dom, whereupon turns a little to the right on the forested ridge, where it starts ascending steeper and steeper. A pleasant, occasionally panoramic, with roots vegetated path which leads us uphill towards the north, in parts entirely flattens and then again ascends. When the steepness the third time decreases, follows the last steepest part of the ascent (at the descending in wet or snow it is dangerous for slipping). The path just below the summit comes from steep forest slopes on open, where near the precipitous edge we ascend only few steps to the top of Smolnik, where there are situated two benches, and we have a nice view into a valley.
