Access to the starting point:
a) From Železniki, Kranj or Medvode, drive to Škofja Loka, and from there continue in the direction of Gorenje vasi in the Poljane valley and Žirem.

Just after the crossroads, park in a suitable place on the roadside.

Path description:
From the starting point, where the vending machine of the farm pr Šupc is located nearby, continue along the road towards the village Leskovica and in the direction of the hiking trails to Blegoš, Ermanovec and Slajko. Walk along the roadside for a few minutes, partly on the pavement, and then the signs for Ermanovec and Slajka direct you to the left (straight ahead Blegoš), where you cross the bridge Kopačnica, and just after the bridge, at the church of St. Lawrence, continue to the right and gradually start climbing. At first we climb past a few more houses, then the signs direct us sharp left, where we continue for some 10 steps along cart track, and on the hayfield cart track turns into a path, which turns slightly to the right and leads us past one more house. Higher up, we cross some porer cart tracks, and the markings lead us through the slightly overgrown path lane to an asphalt road, which we only cross. On the other side of the road, you first climb steeply and then continue along a narrower track which continues along a small valley, where the route of the power lines also runs. From the valley, you soon ascend across to the right, where you reach a ridge (here another path joins from the right), and here the path turns to the left. A little further on, cross another track, and when you leave the forest, climb quickly to an asphalt road, which you follow to the right. The tarmac road then leads us past a bench, where the path to Vrh Slajke branches off to the right, and we follow the semicircular road to the left to a nearby farm, from which we are only a minute's walk from Dom na Slajki.
From home, we return to the nearby farm, where we bypass the main buildings on the upper side and continue our journey along the dirt road, which turns into a track in the nearby meadow. Then you walk through the lane of a forest and arrive at the grassy slopes of Špik or Vranškovi Hill (both names appear on the maps), which you cross with beautiful views. When you reach a dirt road, follow it downhill (private land on the right), and when the road has been laid, join the wider dirt road, which you reach above the Hom farm.
Continue in the direction of Ermanovec and then walk along the dirt road for some time, which later becomes asphalt. There is some downhill with good views, then from a small crossroads continue slightly right (slightly left to reach St. Paul's Church in Stara Oselica), and from the next crossroads go slightly left (slightly right to Rotovž Farm). An easy climb follows and the path leads to a place where the marked path splits.
Continue on the slightly right path, which continues along the road (to the left the top of Ermanovec, but it is also possible to get to the Dom na Ermanovcu, but the path is slightly longer) and continue to climb crosswise. Higher up, continue slightly to the left, and at the hamlet of a few houses the road turns sharp right, and then, with beautiful views, leads us to a marked crossroads by the chapel and the bell.
Continue straight on in the direction of Dom na Ermanovcu (sharp left top of Ermanovcu, left road descending to Sovodnja) and continue walking along the gently sloping asphalt road, which a little further on is joined by the marked path from Sovodnja.
From this crossroads, it is only a short walk of 10 steps to reach the Dom na Ermanovcu (Home on Ermanovec).
