Path description:
Few strides before the beginning of the parking lot, by the fence of Senior citizens home Preddvor, we will notice hiking signposts, and we go on the path in the direction of Senčnica Josipine Turnograjske. The path starts by the already mentioned fence, and then continues through the forest. Through the forest, we are few minutes relatively steeply ascending, and then the path flattens and it brings us to Senčnica Josipine Turnograjske, where there is also an inscription box with an inscription book.
From the top follows a short descent on a forest path, and then we reach the forest road which we follow to the left, and there we are for a short time lightly descending. We soon reach the other wider road (road which leads from the parking lot near the Senior citizens home Preddvor and which bypasses Senčnica Josipine Turnograjske), which we cross slightly towards the left, where by the entrance into the forest, we notice red hiking signposts (to here possible also on the before mentioned road).
We continue in the direction of ruins of the castle Novi grad (Pusti grad) and footpath towards St. Jakob and Potoška gora. The path ahead is moderately ascending through a forested valley, and then splits into two parts.
We choose the left path, named Juhantova pot, which leads towards St. Jakob (slightly right normal marked path towards St. Jakob, Potoška gora, Javorov vrh...), and which already after a minute or two again splits.
In direction of straight continues marked, but further unmarked path towards St. Jakob, and we continue left on still marked path in the direction of the castle Novi grad. Next follows a short ascent and we reach a smaller saddle, where we continue left on a wider mountain path. Forest path then ascends diagonally and is gradually turning to the right. A little further, the path turns more to the right and it brings us to the ruins of the castle Novi grad.
From the top, we can descend on a marked circular path, which on above described path returns at a smaller saddle right below the summit.
On the way: Senčnica Josipine Turnograjske (570m)
