Access to the starting point:
From the Savinja Valley or from Kamnik via the Črnivec Pass, drive to Gornji Grad, where you can park in the parking lot next to the main bus station.
Path description:
From the main bus station in Gornji Grad, continue along the main road towards the Črnivec Pass and Kamnik, and walk along it for about 5 minutes, or until the crossroads, where a narrower asphalt road branches off to the right towards Lenart.
The way forward leads us along the above-mentioned road, which at first climbs gently over vast meadows. Slightly higher up, the road passes into the valley of the Kanolščica stream, which then climbs gently to moderately for some time. At all junctions, follow the road along the valley floor, and then, after about 1 hour's walk from the starting point, notice the mountain markings, which direct you left onto the path that climbs under the electricity pylons. After a few 10 m, cross a torrent and the path begins to climb steeply over sometimes quite overgrown slopes. Higher up, the path leads over a short partly difficult section where a landslide has carried away a few metres of the marked path. The path then returns to the dense forest, through which it climbs steeply for a short time, before descending and leading to a nearby road. Follow the road to the left, and we walk along it to the first bend, where at the end of it we turn left onto a marked footpath, which we follow quickly up to the Knebovšek homestead. Walk across the courtyard and then continue in the direction of Lepenatka and Rogatec. Just above the farm, the road turns into cart track, which turns right into the woods, where it crosses the slopes to the right. A little further on, cross a slightly exposed torrent, and then follow an occasionally overgrown path to a forest road. Follow the road to the right and walk past the chapel in a gentle downhill to a marked crossroads. From the crossroads, continue in the direction of St Lenart and follow the wide cart track, which will take you to the aforementioned church in 3 minutes.
From the church, continue left towards the saddle Kal and Lepenatka (straight ahead Zgornji Špeh and Rogatec) along the path that climbs above the track. After a short climb, a shorter path joins us on the left for about a minute, bypassing the Church of St Lenart. Continue straight ahead and after a further short climb, you will come out on a dirt road, which you follow to the right, and we will walk along it to a nearby crossroads.
From here continue right towards the Kal saddle (left Lepenatka "along the ridge"), where after 2 minutes of further walking you reach the end of the road below Lepenatka.
From the end of the road, signs direct us to a torrential ravine and then to the right on steep and, especially in the wet, slippery slopes (in winter, there is also a danger of avalanches in this area). In a few minutes, we climb up a well-maintained mountain path to a wooded ridge, where the path and the slope are laid. The way forward leads us along and along the forested ridge for some time, then turns to the right and leads us in a cross-climb under the saddle Kal. Here, we step onto a narrower track, which will take us up to the aforementioned saddle in a few minutes.
From the saddle, continue left (right Bivak na Kalu for 3 minutes and Rogatec for 50 minutes) and first climb along the edge of the forest, then the path leads to the vast grassy slopes of Lepenatka. The path continues along an increasingly scenic ridge, then the path lays down a little and leads to the main ridge Lepenatka, where the path "along the ridge" joins us from the left. Here we continue to the right and within a minute of further walking we arrive at a grassy and scenic peak.
