Access to starting point:
A) First, we drive to Škofja Loka, and then we continue driving towards Gorenja vas and Žiri. At the beginning of Žiri we turn left on street Dobračevska ulica, which a little further passes into street Kosovelova ulica and to street Ulica Pod griči. At the crossroad of street Ulica Pod griči and street Jezerska ulica we turn left towards the nearby transformer station, where there is the beginning of the path on Javorč. At the starting point, there aren't any appropriate parking spots.
B) From highway Ljubljana - Koper we go to the exit Vrhnika, after we reach old road we continue left towards Logatec, but we drive there only to the first crossroad, from there we continue driving right towards Horjul and Stara Vrhnika. For some time we drive on the main road towards Horjul, and then we turn slightly left in the direction of village Smrečje. After the village Podlipa the road starts ascending steeper, and during the ascent from the right joins also the road from Horjul. We continue straight and a little further we get to Smrečje, from there we continue driving on the main road towards Žiri. The road then starts descending through the valley Račeva dolina, where in its lower part we notice ski jumping hills of the nearby nordic center Žiri. Even a little further, we get to the periphery of the town Žiri, where the road splits into two parts. Main road turns slightly to the left, and we continue slightly right on street Pod Griči, which we follow to a crossroad with street Jezerska ulica, where we turn right towards the nearby transformer. At the starting point, there aren't any appropriate parking spots.
C) From highway Ljubljana - Koper we go to the exit Logatec, and then we continue driving in the direction Rovte and Žiri. We continue driving on a quite winding road which we follow to Žiri, and there in the center of the town we turn right on street Jezerska ulica, which we follow all the way to the transformer, which is situated on the periphery of the town. At the starting point, there aren't any appropriate parking spots.
Path description:
In front of transformer we continue slightly right on a cart track which is at first ascending gently by mesh fence. Fence quickly ends, and the cart track starts moderately ascending on a panoramic grassy slope. At first quite a nice view opens up on basin Žirovska kotlina and hills which surround it, and then moderately steep, well-beaten but unmarked path gradually passes into at first still thin forest. The path on which we walk, in the first part runs on trim trail, therefore next to it we notice some requisites for exercises. A little higher we leave trim trail and we continue the ascent on a well-beaten cart track. Even though the path isn't marked and several times splits into more parts, at orientation there aren't any bigger problems, because paths which lead uphill, quite quickly join again. Higher, the path which partly runs on an indistinct forested ridge passes on a panoramic grassy slope, from which a nice view opens up on Škofjeloško hribovje. On the upper part of a grassy slope we notice a smaller holiday cottage, which we bypass on the right side. Here the path returns into the forest, and we notice by the path first blazes.
We continue on a forested ridge, on the path which leads us past bunker of former Rapallo border. Few minutes higher, the path flattens and brings us out of the forest on a larger clearing, through which we quickly walk to the inscription box on Javorč.
From the inscription box, we can continue slightly left to the near road, on which we quickly get to the hunting lodge, which is usually opened on weekends.
