Access to the starting point:
a) First, drive to Cerkno (to get here from the road Idrija - Most na Soči, or via the pass Kladje), then continue driving in the direction of the ski resort Cerkno. Continue past the Gačnik Guesthouse (the inn in Log), then soon the signs for the Franja Hospital direct you left onto a slightly narrower and ascending asphalt road, which you then follow to the parking area next to the Pasice Bar.
b) From the Poljane valley, drive to Hotavlje, then follow the signs for the Cerkno ski resort. Follow the signs for the ski resort Cerkno only as far as Kopačnica, where from the junction where the road to the ski resort and Leskovica continues to the right, continue straight ahead on the road that continues along the Podplečica stream. At the homestead Joškovec, where the next confluence is, continue to the right and then start climbing steeply on the partly macadam road. At the homestead Mrovlje, the road switches to the coastal side and after some downhill you join the main road leading from Cerkno to the ski resort Cerkno. Follow the road down to the left, and when you see the signs for the Franja Hospital, continue right and climb up a slightly narrower road to the parking area next to the Pasice bar.
c) From the Selška valley, ascend to Davča, then follow the signs for the ski resort Cerkno and later the signs for Cerkno. Once on the coastal side, turn right at the end of Dolenji Novaki towards Franja Hospital. There is a short climb and you arrive at the Pasice bar, where you park.
Path description:
From the starting point at the Pasice bar, continue towards Porezno, initially walking along the path that also leads to the Franja Hospital. After a 10 metre walk, the path towards the Pasice gorge turns slightly right, and we continue to the left and walk along the road to the Podnjivč homestead, where the path leads us between the houses. After the homestead, cross a small stream over a footbridge, then follow the wide cart track, which you follow at crossroads in the direction of the markings. Then cross Drnova Hill (1004 m), where the path leads with some short ascents and descents. When we reach the south-western slopes, the path descends a little more and leads us to the village Poljane, where there is a marked crossroads.
From the crossroads, continue right towards Porezno (straight ahead Cerkno and Labinje), where you first climb through hay fields, then the path enters the forest, through which it begins to climb more steeply. At first, the ascent is close to the picturesque Trševka stream, but then the path moves slightly away from the stream. At a height of 960 metres, we reach a marked crossroads where the trail from Cerkno and one of the trails from Poč join.
Continue straight ahead, crossing the road to the hayfields of Labinjske lehe, where you will have a beautiful view of the Cerkljansko region, with views as far as the Krim, Snežnik and the Trnovski Forest.
At the upper part of the hayfields, the path turns slightly left and passes onto the slopes called Počanska gora. There is a slight to moderate cross-climb to the left, and we walk along a well-maintained path, which is well guarded and easy to follow on the short, steep terrain.
After the guarded part, the path splits and we continue on the lower path (winter direction on the right), which continues to climb transversely. Later, the slope becomes steeper and the path climbs steeply with the help of log steps. The path quickly becomes steeper and reaches the Homa ridge, where the path from the Cerkno ski resort joins from the right.
Continue in the direction of Porezno and descend quickly to the saddle Velbnik, where you will see the hunting lodge at Šaš on the left.
From the saddle Velbnik, where the forest road leading to Dom na Poreznu comes quite close, we climb through a narrow lane of a forest, and then, crossing a pasture fence, the path splits. Continue along the ascending path (the left path bypasses the Medrce peak and is not marked), and in 10 minutes you will climb to the Medrce peak, from where you will have a beautiful view of Porezen.
