Access to starting point:
A) From Ljubljana or Kranj we drive to Škofja Loka, from where we continue towards Gorenja vas. In Gorenja vas we continue right in the direction of Cerkno and Žiri. The road then runs past village Trebija, behind which we turn right in the direction of Cerkno (left Žiri). We follow this road to the village Sovodenj, where we park on a parking lot between Mercator store and the fire station.
B) From Tolmin we drive to Cerkno, and from there we continue driving over the mountain pass Kladje (787 meters) towards Škofja Loka. When we come to the village Sovodenj we park on a parking lot between the store and the fire station.
C) From highway Ljubljana - Koper we go to the exit Logatec and then we continue driving to Logatec. From the roundabout, where we reach old road Vrhnika - Postojna we continue right (direction Vrhnika) and we continue driving on the old road towards Vrhnika, and we are driving there only few 100 meters and then we turn left on the road in the direction of Rovte and Žiri. Further, we drive on a gradually more and more winding road which we follow to Žiri. From Žiri we at first still continue driving towards Škofja Loka and Gorenja vas, after that in one of the crossroads we continue sharply left in the direction of Cerkno and Sovodenj. When we get to Sovodenj we park on a parking lot between Mercator store and the fire station.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we continue on the asphalt road in the direction of Ermanovec and Cerkno. And after few minutes of the ascent on the main road, we get to a marked crossroad, where the road branches off to the right on Ermanovec. We go on this road, that runs by a scenic 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 by an earlier 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 - path Razgledna pot) which we follow only few 10 meters to the 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 footpath which starts gently ascending through Miklavževa grapa. The path ahead is for quite some time ascending by the edge of the stream and then turns right and starts ascending steeper. A well-marked footpath, 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 Ermanovec) and after few additional strides, we get to the mentioned mountain hut.
At the mountain hut, we notice a mountain signpost for Štor, which points us on a footpath which ascends steeply through the forest. The path quickly flattens and it brings us out of the forest on a panoramic meadow, where the blazes end. Here we go right into a dense forest and we continue the ascent on a gently sloping unmarked footpath, on which in 2 minutes of additional walking, we get to indistinct and with a forest covered peak.
On the way: Koča na Ermanovcu mountain hut (968m)
