Access to starting point:

We drive on a regional road from Ilirska Bitrica to Sviščaki (19 kilometres). 11 kilometres of the road is asphalted.

Path description:

From the parking lot at the mountain cottage on Sviščaki we continue on the road going over a meadow. On the other side of meadow we leave the road and start to go up over a grassy slope towards Snežnik. After a few minutes we get to the road and follow it to the crossroad, where we go on the left road. After a few steps it gets us to a parking lot at the chapel. The sign for Snežnik leads us to a cart track, which goes up slowly through the woods. After 15 minutes the track goes down a little and crosses a forest road. On the other side of the road it goes up again but then the steppness lowers. The track goes by the cross to the forest road and to crossroad. We continue on a bad road towards Snežinka, which after 15 minutes gets us to the place where the road ends. A beautiful view opens towards Snežinka. The sign leads on a nice path which slowly goes up between a pine under Mali Snežnik. This path gets us on a ridge, where the path for Mali Snežnik goes left. We continue to the right and in 10 minutes we get to the refuge on Snežnik. Just a few steps left from the refuge to the top.
