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 continue slightly right in the direction of St. Jakob, Potoška gora and Javorov vrh (left Novi grad (Pusti grad) and the path Juhantova pot) on the path which from a small valley gradually avoids more and more to the right. The marked path, which occasionally steeply ascends further few times crosses a forest road which leads towards St. Jakob, mountain hut Planinska koča pri Franciju and mountain hut Planinska koča Iskra na Jakobu. When higher, at the red color sign we again step on the road, there we continue left. After few 10 meters path branches off slightly to the right, which leads towards Planinska koča Iskra na Jakobu, and we continue straight on a bad road which a little further joins the path Juhantova pot. We still continue on the road, and it quickly brings us to Planinska koča pri Franciju.
