Access to starting point:
A) First, we drive to Gorenja vas in the valley Poljanska dolina (to here from Škofja Loka, new bypass road which bypasses Škofja Loka Horjul or Polhov Gradec), and then we continue driving towards Žiri and Cerkno. After the settlement Trebija and just before the bridge through Poljanska Sora, we leave the main road towards Žiri and we continue driving right in the direction of Cerkno. Further, we drive on a little more winding road, on which we quickly get to the settlement Sovodenj, where we park in the center of the settlement.
B) We drive to Žiri (to here from Vrhnika or Logatec), and then we continue driving towards Škofja Loka. Before settlement Trebija we turn left, on the road in the direction of Cerkno. Further, we drive on a little more winding road, on which we quickly get to the settlement Sovodenj, where we park between the store and the fire station.
C) We drive to Cerkno, and from there we continue driving in the direction of Škofja Loka. Further, we drive on an ascending road which through Planina pri Cerknem, on a winding road brings us to mountain pass Kladje, from where the road starts descending towards Sovodenj. When we get to Sovodenj, we park on a parking lot in the middle of the settlement.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we continue on the asphalt road in the direction of Ermanovec and Cerkno. After few minutes of the ascent on the main road, we get to a marked crossroad, where the road on Ermanovec branches off to the right. We go on the mentioned road, that runs along a scenic small stream and after few minutes of additional walking brings us to the next crossroad.
We continue straight (right - Ermanovec on the road) on the road which still runs along the already mentioned stream. The road then over a smaller bridge crosses the stream and past a smaller hamlet brings us to a marked crossing.
We still continue on the road (left - Ermanovec panoramic path) which we follow only few 10 meters to the nearby right turn. At the beginning of the turn, just before the road crosses the stream, we leave it and we continue the ascent on a marked hiking path which starts gently ascending through Miklavževa grapa. The path is further for quite some time ascending by the edge of the stream and then turns right and it ascends steeper. A well-marked path, then few times crosses a cart track and higher it also joins it. Next follows few minutes of a little less steep ascent on a cart track which passes out of the forest on panoramic grassy slopes, after which we get to the road. We continue right through a smaller hamlet and the road then in a moderate ascent brings us to a crossroad near the mountain hut Koča na Ermanovcu. Here we continue left (right - peak of Ermanovec) and after few additional strides, we get to the mentioned mountain hut.
From the mountain hut, we continue in the direction of Bevkov vrh, after approximately 5 minutes of additional walking on the road, we get to a marked crossing, where from the right side the path from Kopačnica joins.
From the crossroad, which is situated in the main ridge of 1005 meters high Štor, we continue straight (right - Kopačnica) on a quite panoramic asphalt road, on which in few minutes we get to the information board of Rapallo border and a renovated border stone from the year 1920.
Few strides further signs for hospital Franja point us to the right, on a macadam road which leads us through the yard of the nearby house. On the other side of the house, we continue left on a cart track, on which over a grassy slope we pass into the forest. Through the forest on few crossings we follow the blazes, and the path after the building from the time of Rapallo border starts visibly descending. Lower, the path brings us out of the forest, from where a nice view opens up on Škofje. Few more strides lower, at the hamlet of few houses, we step on an asphalt road which leads from the mountain hut Koča na Ermanovcu towards the mountain pass Kladje, and we short time follow it to the right, and then next signs for hospital Franja point us to the right on a cart track which is still descending. Next follows a descent, at first through the forest and then through a panoramic meadow to the next well-marked crossing, where from the left joins the path from the mountain pass Kladje.
We continue straight (right - Jeram - stamp ICPP) on a gentle cart track which crosses a lane of a forest and then without large changes in altitude in few minutes brings us to the next marked crossing. At the crossing, we only cross an asphalt road (left downwards - Cerkno and hospital Franja) and we continue on a shorter grassy slope into the forest (we continue on a footpath and not on the nearby cart track). Further, we are ascending by the edge of the forest, and the path leads us just by the wide grassy slope of Škofje. Higher, the path brings us out of the forest on a panoramic grassy ridge, where it turns to the right and it is then ascending on a more and more panoramic ridge. Next follows a gentle and very panoramic walk on a grassy ridge (a nice view towards Kojca and Porezen), and then the path passes into the forest and after few minutes of additional walking brings us to the summit of Škofje.
