Access to starting point:
A) From highway Razdrto - Nova Gorica we go to the exit Ajdovščina, and then at the crossroad we turn left in the direction of Nova Gorica. Further, on a regional road towards Nova Gorica we drive to the settlement Vrtovin, there in the middle of the village we turn right in the direction of Čaven. The road which is then ascending through the village at the crossroads we follow in the direction of St. Pavel, Kucelj and Čaven. We park on a smaller parking lot at the end of the village, near the mountain signposts.
B) From highway Nova Gorica - Razdrto we go to the exit Selo, after we drive on the old road Nova Gorica - Ajdovščina we continue right towards Nova Gorica. On regional road towards Ajdovščina we drive to the settlement Vrtovin, there in the middle of the village we turn left in the direction of Čaven. The road which is then ascending through the village at the crossroads we follow in the direction of St. Pavel, Kucelj and Čaven. We park on a smaller parking lot at the end of the village, near the mountain signposts.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we continue on the left road in the direction of Kucelj and St. Pavel. After few minutes of walking, the road brings us to a crossing, where mountain path on Kucelj and Čaven branches off to the right upward (straight still on the road St. Pavel). We continue the ascent on a marked, partly rocky cart track which is ascending through an occasionally thin forest. A little higher we get to a marked crossing, where we continue slightly left in the direction of Kucelj (right Mala gora and Čaven).
Well marked cart track which we follow in the direction of Kucelj a little higher brings us on the forest road which we only cross. The path ahead is ascending gently through a thin forest, but only to a spot, where from the left the path from Sveti Pavel joins.
The path ahead starts steeply ascending through the forest, through which we are then for quite some time ascending. Higher, we cross the path Srednječavenska pot, above which the forest slowly starts to get thinner. A little higher, the path gets very close an old road connection between Vipava valley and plateau Trnovski gozd.
Right at the spot, where we get very close to the mentioned road or cart track, we leave the mountain path which leads on Kucelj and we continue the ascent on the road, on which we start ascending diagonally towards the left. After a good 10 minutes of walking, the road flattens and brings us by the edge of plateau, where from the right side joins the path which leads from the mountain hut Koča na Čavnu over Kucelj on Veliki rob.
From here we continue few more 10 meters on a bad road, and then signs for Veliki rob point us to the left on a footpath which starts gradually ascending on the south edge of Trnovski gozd. Occasionally a quite panoramic path higher avoids the ridge a little to the right and for a short time passes into a dense forest, where from the right side, the path from Krnica joins. After a short descent, the path again starts ascending, and out of the forest it brings us into a lane of dwarf pines, where it then continues on and by an occasionally quite steep ridge. This path, from which beautiful views opening up, we then follow all the way to Veliki rob.
