Access to the starting point:
a) First, take the Ig, and from there continue in the direction of Iška vas and Iškega Vintgar. Just after Iška vas you will reach the village of Iška, where the road to Gornji Ig and Rakitna turns sharp right. Take the ascending road mentioned above, passing Gornji Ig and, higher up, the road branch to Krim. A few 100 m further on from the turnoff for Krim, you will reach a larger hayfield where the road is laid out, and on the other side of the hayfield it turns left and returns to the forest. Just a few metres before the road enters the woods, you will see the National Liberation Monument on your left and a suitable parking space next to it.
b) From the motorway Ljubljana - Koper take the exit Brezovica, then continue in the direction of Podpeč (Podpeč can also be reached from Črna vas or Ig). In Podpeč, continue in the direction of Borovnica, Krimo and Rakitna, and continue along the edge of the Ljubljana Marshes for a short distance, then the signs for Rakitna direct you to the left onto a steeply ascending road. The road then leads through Preserje, where it also begins to descend. After a short descent, continue left in the direction of Krimo and Rakitna, and we then follow the mostly ascending road to a junction where the road to Krimo branches off to the left. From this junction, turn left and continue along the dirt road. After a few kilometres, when the road emerges from the forest onto a larger hayfield, you will see the NOB monument right at the beginning and a suitable place to park next to it.
c) First drive to Cerknica, then continue in the direction of Begunje, and when you arrive in Begunje follow the signs for Rakitno. From Rakitna, continue along the main road towards Preserje, and follow it to the crossroads where the road to Krimo branches off to the right. From this junction, turn right and continue along the dirt road. After a few kilometres, when the road emerges from the forest onto a larger hayfield, you will see the NOB monument right at the beginning and a suitable place to park next to it.
Path description:
From the starting point at the NOB monument, continue along the macadam road in the route Rakitna (if you reached the starting point by following the description of the access to starting point b or c, then walk in the route from which you came). After a few metres, the road turns into a forest, through which it descends relatively gently. The road, which continues mainly southwards, initially leads us along the wooded slopes of Kamenica Peak (1050 m), then turns slightly to the right and takes us to the slopes above the Lepo dolina. Before the macadam road makes a long right turn, the mountain signs for Rakitna direct us left onto a marked footpath which begins to climb through the forest. After a few minutes, the path joins the forest cart track, where it is also laid. Cart track continues along an undistinguished valley between Rotovc (964 m) on the left and Županov vrh (999 m) on the right. A few minutes further on, cart track splits into two parts, a more prominent and marked left cart track and a less prominent unmarked right cart track.
From this crossroads, continue along the fainter right-hand cart track, which is usually flanked by the smaller cairn. The old, barely traceable cart track turns slightly to the right a little further on and turns into an initially less traceable path, which is joined by a path from the saddle (the path from Rakitna over the saddle) on the indistinct ridge Županov vrh. From here onwards, the path is more easily traceable and is also reasonably well beaten. The trail follows a slightly steeper path, which leads us through an occasionally more sparse forest, which, like most other forests in Slovenia, was slightly affected by the hailstorm at the beginning of February 2014. Just below the summit, while we are still in the forest, the trail splits into two parts again. Continue left over a small pasture fence and after a few steps you will emerge from the forest onto the vast Županov vrh. The highest point is just in front of the antenna tower, which you can see when you leave the forest, and there is a trigonometric point on top of it (the top). As the summit is vast, you have to walk a little on the top to get a view of the different sides.
