Path description:
Behind inn Kovač we continue right into the forest, where we immediately get to a crossing of two marked paths. We choose the left path with signs Kovačeva steza (slightly right path Westrova pot), and it starts ascending diagonally towards the left. After a short ascent Učna pot (learning path) branches off slightly to the left, and we continue slightly right on the path Kovačeva steza. Higher, the path flattens and turns a little to the left and then back right, where gradually passes into a smaller erosion ditch. Next follows a short steeper ascent, and then we step on a cart track, where we continue left (right Grmada - path, which joins to path Westrova pot).
Next follows a short crossing and the path brings us to rough road which leads towards the saddle Sedlo below Šmarna gora. Higher, the road brings us out of the forest on panoramic slopes. With a view on the summit of Šmarna gora and Kamnik Savinja Alps we quickly get to the homestead Gorjanc, from which follows a short walk to a marked crossing on the saddle Na Sedlu.
Here we continue left still on the road, and it soon splits into two parts. We can continue the ascent on the road, in this case, we get to the summit past a wish bell, or we continue right on a marked footpath which past the chapel of St. Sobota, also brings us to the summit of Šmarna gora.
On the way: Na Sedlu (580m)
