Access to the starting point:
a) From the Bača pri Modreju - Podbrdo road, in Grahovo ob Bači, turn towards Bukovo. First, descend in two serpentines to the bridge over the river Bača, then start climbing towards Bukovo. At the next crossroads, take a sharp right in the direction of Cerkno (slightly left Zakojca). After a few more 100 metres of driving, you will reach the centre of the village Bukovo, where the route described above begins at the former inn at Urška.
b) From the road Most na Soči - Idrija, at the settlement Reka, drive in the direction of the settlement Bukovo and then climb above the Bukovo ravine. Higher up, the road forks slightly to the left towards the settlement of Police, and we continue towards Bukove. At a height of 653 metres, the winding road leads to a crossroads where it joins the road from Cerkno, and we continue to the left and drive to the centre of the village of Bukovo, where, by the former inn at Urška, the route described above begins.
c) First, drive to the centre of Cerkno (to get here from the road Idrija - Most na Soči, or from Gorenje village and Žiri via the pass Kladje, or from Zali Log via Davča. . . ), and then continue driving in the direction of Zakojca. Just a few metres after we head in the direction of Zakojca, the road to Zakriž branches off to the left, with a steep shortcut leading through it, and we continue along the road that continues along the Zapoška stream. Higher up, the road leads us through the villages Trebenče, Gorje, and then, after crossing the slopes, we pass the village Zakriž on the upper side, where the aforementioned shortcut joins us. A little further on, the road turns further to the right, and after a few kilometres of crossing, we reach the beginning of the village Jesenica, from where we follow the signs for the village Bukovo. Then cross the slopes of Kojca, and when you arrive in Bukovo, drive to the former hostel at Urška, where the route described above begins.
Path description:
From the former inn at Urška (Bukovo 9), take the road leading to Cerkno, and after a few 10 steps turn left onto a side road that climbs towards the houses of the upper part of the settlement. After a short climb, you reach a crossroads by a hydrant, where you go right, passing the house with house number Bukovo 23 on your left. Above the house, take a sharp left and then go through the yard of the last house in the village. There is a short climb up to a small building with a siren at the top and a marking on the building pointing to the right. The way ahead leads us crosswise under the route of a high-voltage power line, and then at a crossroads we choose the lion cart track, which then climbs crosswise to the left. The old cart track, which is already quite damaged in some places due to the steep slopes, and along which you can see a few markings, turns higher up into what is initially still a fairly wide forest track, but which, especially in wet conditions, is dangerous to slip on in a few places. The path also ascends in the same direction, gradually moving to the northern slopes of Kojca, where it reaches an unmarked crossroads.
From the crossroads continue slightly left (sharp right, which after a longer crossing goes to the southern slopes and joins the marked trail from Orehko) and continue crossing, and the trail continues to climb gently for the most part and crosses a few ravines. A fainter path then leads us to a place where we reach the marked path from Zakojca.
Even when we reach the marked path, we continue crossing, the only difference is that the path widens slightly, and it becomes even better trodden when we join the marked path from Jesenica or the Vrh Ravni and Orehka prevala.
There is a moderate climb, and then we join the path from Rijeka and the other path from Orehko, and the path circling Kojca continues in the same direction.
The way forward again starts to climb steeply and continues along the eastern ridge of Kojca, with occasional views. Climb through the forest for a few more minutes, then the forest ends and the path lays down, with only a few minutes' walk to the summit with the famous haystack. Description and figures refer to the situation in 2018 (October).
