Access to starting point:
The starting point is at Tourist farm Široko in Tolminski Lom. In detail are described accesses from the direction of Nova Gorica and Idrija, the access is possible also from the direction Tolmin and via plateau Banjška planota through Kanalski Lom.
A) From Nova Gorica, we follow the signs for Bovec and Tolmin, we drive through Kanal and then we pay attention to the turn-off for Most na Soči (in the direction of Idrija and Ljubljana). We continue driving through the village Kozaršče, in the center of Most na Soči at the crossroad we turn right in the direction of Lom (straight - direction Ljubljana, left - direction Tolmin). When we cross the bridge over the river Idrijca, we continue on a steep local road into a sharp right turn. The road is next 4 kilometers ascending and it brings us to a saddle, where a steep road towards Sveta Gora branches off to the left towards Tourist farm Široko. After a little less than two kilometers of further ascending, we get to the tourist farm, where we look for the parking spot.
B) From the direction Idrija we follow the signs for Tolmin. In the center of Most na Soči at the crossroad we turn sharply left in the direction of Lom (straight - direction Nova Gorica, right - direction Tolmin). When we cross the bridge over the river Idrijca, we continue on a steep local road into a sharp right turn. The road is next 4 kilometers ascending and it brings us to a saddle, where a steep road towards Sveta Gora branches off to the left towards Tourist farm Široko. After a little less than two kilometers of further ascending, we get to the tourist farm, where we look for the parking spot.
Path description:
The path is well marked with signposts and is undemanding. It mostly runs on macadam roads and the forest paths, below the summit it short time runs on a narrower footpath. By the path there are several marked attractions and two vantage points with panorama boards (Široko and Ledince), the peak is also panoramic.
When we park at the tourist farm, we can turn to the vantage point above the farm, otherwise we look for the starting point at the end of the road, where the road descends to houses and where there are garbage containers. Here we notice signposts for Ledince, Grudnica and Veliki vrh, which point us on a steep macadam forest road. It is ascending for some time, and then it lightly flattens. We leave a wide macadam road on the top of the next longer slope, where signs point us to right towards the vantage point Ledince and Veliki vrh (a sign for a shortcut).
From the vantage point, we continue on a gentle forest cart track to the next marked crossroad, where we turn slightly left upwards, the path right downwards goes in the direction of Močilo na Kalu and Kanalski Lom. From here the path is well marked with signposts and blue-yellow blazes, which mark circular trail »Lom is my home«. The path goes past the abyss Brezno v Špilah a little higher from the path which is settled for sightseeing, also with the description on the info sign. The path then after few turns narrows and ascends to the border stone, and there is the next information board.
After the border stone, we turn right on again a little wider path. And in a dried spruce forest, just before the clearing, we leave the path and we turn right on a narrower footpath. It brings us on an indistinct ridge, which is gently rising towards Veliki vrh. After few minutes of walking, we notice preserved position from the 1st world war, and after a short descent then follows only a short ascent to the top. Just below the summit there is also an information board with a theme of the 1st world war, and on the top there is miniature Aljaž turret with an inscription book (we can open it by lifting the cover).
We can return on the same path or we go on a little longer marked path »Lom is my home« in the direction of Grudnica (this extends the path for 30 minutes, we join back at the vantage point Ledince). On the way back we can after the abyss turn far left towards Močilo na Kalu and on the trail »Lom is my home« we descend in other direction into Kanalski Lom and then we ascend back on Široko (this extends the path for a good 1 hour and additional 200 meters of ascent).
