Access to starting point:
A) From highway Ljubljana - Maribor we go to the exit Rače - Fram, and then we follow the signs for Fram. We continue through the center of Fram, and then we start ascending towards the settlements Kopivnik, Planica and Frajhajm, and higher we follow the signs for Areh. When we join a wider road we go left and still follow the signs for Areh. We park on a large parking lot near Ruška koča na Arehu.
B) We leave Štajerska highway at exit for Slivnica and Rogoza, and then we follow the signs for Pohorje and Areh. The path ahead leads us through Spodnje and Zgornje Hoče, Slivniško Pohorje, and after the settlements we follow the signs for Areh. We park on a large parking lot near Ruška koča na Arehu.
Path description:
From the parking lot near Ruška koča na Arehu we go on the road in the direction of Žigartov vrh, Šumik and Cojzarica. After approximately 10 minutes of walking on the road which leads through the forest, we get to a marked crossing, where we continue left towards Bajgot and waterfall Šumik (straight - Žigartov vrh).
The path ahead returns into the forest and leads us on a worse forest road, and from which soon a path branches off to the left downwards towards the source of Polskava (5 minutes), and we continue straight. After some time, we go from the bad road slightly right, on a cart track which ascends diagonally on slopes of Žigartov vrh. Cart track quickly flattens and it brings us to a marked crossing, where from the right side joins the path which leads via Žigartov vrh and is a little longer than ours.
We continue straight and we are gradually descending through the forest, and lower we cross another forest road. Also further we mostly walk on cart tracks on the path which few times ascends and descends again, and at the crossings we follow the blazes. After a little longer descent we get to NOB monument, where we reach the macadam road.
We walk on the road only few 10 strides and the path splits.
We choose the right path in the direction of Pesek (left - Sveti Trije kralji) and we for some time leave the road, and a little ahead we cross another road, and we continue straight on a worse forest road, by which we are accompanied by blazes. Next follows some of a light ascent, and then we go past the hunting observatory, and the road gradually changes into a cart track. A little further, we go from the cart track slightly right, and then we start descending diagonally. Lower, we cross the road Areh - Osankarica, and a little lower we reach the road Areh - Šumik.
When we reach the road Areh - Šumik we go left, and from the left joins also a marked path from Sveti Trije kralji and Osankarica. We still continue on the road, and then we quickly get to the starting point Bajgot na Šumiku, where one of the paths branches off right downwards towards Ruše (path Holcarska pot through the valley of Lobnica).
From here for few steps we continue on the road, and then we go right on a marked path towards Pesek and Klopni vrh, which leads us over a small bridge across Lobnica. Next follows a shorter ascent and we return on a macadam road, where on the road continues a little shorter, but unmarked path towards estate Šumik, but we go across the road and we continue the ascent on a marked path. A little further, we leave the forest and then on a slightly vegetated slope we ascend to a macadam road, where there is a marked crossing.
We continue right in the direction of Gozdarski dom na Šumiku (left - Pohorje battalion camp, lake Tiho jezero and Koča na Pesku, straight upwards - Koča na Klopnem vrhu and Koča na Pesku) and we continue on the macadam road. At the nearby crossroad, we go straight (sharply left - Koča na Klopnem vrhu), and on the road we continue only a short time because signs for mountain hut point us to the right downwards (straight on the road - Ruše). After a short descent, we return on the road, and in front of us, we notice Koča na Šumiku, to which we have one minute of walking.
