Access to starting point:
A) From highway Ljubljana - Koper we go to the exit Brezovica, and then we continue driving in the direction Podpeč (to Podpeč we can also come from Črna vas or Ig). In Podpeč we continue in the direction of Borovnica, Krim and Rakitna and continue driving for a short time by the edge of Ljubljana marshes, and then signs for Rakitna point us to the left on a steep ascending road. Road then leads us through Preserje, where it also starts descending. After a short descent, we continue left in the direction of Krim and Rakitna, and then mostly ascending road we follow to Rakitna (after the turn-off for Krim the road starts descending), where we park on a parking lot by the church.
B) First, we drive to Cerknica, and then we continue driving in the direction of Begunje, when we get to Begunje we follow the signs for Rakitna. When we get to Rakitna we park on a parking lot by a parish church on Rakitna.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we go on a marked path or at first road in the direction of Krim, Dom v Iškem Vintgarju, farms Benko and Ustje, Vrbice and village Osredek. Road at first leads past the chapel, Mercator store, and after a short ascent, it brings us to the spot, where the road branches off to the left towards the nearby snack bar Okrepčevalnica Krimček, and we go a little to the right and we still continue on a marked road. Road then leads us past some more pastures and houses, and then splits into two parts.
We continue left upwards (right leads the road towards health resort MKZ Rakitna) on the road which after a short ascent again splits. This time we continue right in the direction of Krvavica and Iški Vintgar (straight Krim, Rotovc and Županov vrh) and for a short time, we still continue on the asphalt road. At the end of the settlement, we continue left on a macadam road, by which we notice a sign, that we will continue on the forest road. Road then leads us diagonally towards the right over at first a panoramic slope, and then it passes into a lane of a forest. A little after sa maller abandoned quarry, we get below the high voltage power line, from where for some time a view opens up a little. We continue for some time below the power line, and then the path turns right and passes into a dense forest. A little further, on the right side of the road, behind the mesh fence we notice a rubbish dump, and a little further from the left joins the path, which is marked with a triangle.
We continue straight, still on the road which few more times slightly ascends and descends, and then we get to a smaller crossroad, where a driving road which is because of a private land closed with the gate, continues right and we go straight on a cart track which relatively steeply descends. When the both paths join, on the left we notice a holiday cottage, and a little lower we will come also to the farm Ustje, behind which the road finally changes into a cart track. On the cart track, by the edge of fenced pasture we descend to a marked crossing, from where we continue on the right path in the direction of Vrbica (left homestead Benko and Gornji Ig).
After the crossing, the path passes into the forest and it starts lightly ascending. A little further, the path gradually passes on at first still indistinct ridge, on and by which we continue a light ascent. After a short diagonal ascent on a less vegetated slope, in few steps we step on the summit of Trenk.
From the top, it is worthed to carefully descend also to a panoramic precipitous shoulder, which is rising steeply above Iški Vintgar. And if we continue on a marked path, in a minute of additional walking, we get to NOB monument.
