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. The 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 at 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. The 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. The 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 straight in the direction of Krim (right partisan hospital Krvavice and Iški Vintgar) on a worse macadam road which is becoming a little steeper. When the marked path turns right, we leave it and we continue left on an unmarked cart track which starts ascending steeper through the forest. Through the forest, we are at first ascending by the edge of the pasture, so that occasionally a view opens up a little towards Rakitna and Novaška gora. Quite steep cart track higher turns a little to the right and brings us on the ridge northwest from Županov vrh. On the ridge a nice view opens up towards Krim, and we go right on a cart track which continues through the forest. When the cart track which otherwise leads to antennas on Županov vrh, avoids the ridge a little to the left, we leave it and we continue the ascent on a poorly visible footpath which continues on a ridge. When after few minutes forest ends, we return on a cart track, and there with increasingly beautiful views in a minute or two of additional walking, we reach Županov vrh.
Description and pictures refer to a condition in the year 2014 (August).
