At the end of the hill Vrhniški klanec, we continue right in the direction of Zaplana, when and we already get to Zaplana, at the crossroad we continue slightly right in the direction of the tower (left Rovte).

Further, the road brings us on Zaplana, where we at first drive through the settlement Prezid, and then we get to a crossroad, where the road from Vrhniški klanec joins.

Path description:
From the church, we at first cross the road, and then we diagonally ascend on at first a rocky cart track. Path quickly passes into the forest through which it continues to the nearby new houses. At the houses, we step on the road, and then we quickly get to a marked crossing, where we continue left in the direction of the tower (straight Lintvern, right the road which descends to the lower part of Zaplana).
Further, we walk on the macadam road which for some time continues without large changes in altitude, and then it starts gradually descending. Only few steps before we get to a marked crossroad, where a road branches off to the right towards the tower, at the Zavetišče na Planini nad Vrhniko, we continue sharply left on a marked footpath in the direction of the summit of Ulovka (by the spot where we leave the road, there is a signpost).
We continue through the forest on a moderately steep path, on which in a little less than 15 minutes of additional walking, we come out of the forest to the summit of Ulovka, from where a beautiful view opens up.
Description and pictures refer to a condition in May 2013.
