Access to the starting point:
a) From the motorway Ljubljana - Jesenice, take the exit Kranj - East, then continue driving in the direction of Jezersko. When you reach Preddvor, leave the main road and turn left towards the centre of the town, and from there follow the signs for Mače. When you arrive in Mače, continue right at the marked crossroads (left Bašelj, straight ahead St Nicholas Church (the church is not accessible by car)) and follow the narrow road above the village, where there is a large marked parking lot.
b) From the motorway Jesenice - Ljubljana, take the exit Kranj - West and continue left at the first junction. Continue through the underpass under the motorway and then to the roundabout, from where you continue in the direction of Golnik. The road continues through Mlaka pri Kranju, and at the end of the village we turn right in the direction of Srakovlje. We then drive through Srakovlje, Spodnja Bela, Srednja Bela to Zgornja Bela, where we turn right towards Preddvor. At Preddvor we see signs for Mače, which direct us left past the primary school onto the road that climbs up to Maca. When you arrive at Mače, continue right at the marked crossroads (left Bašelj, straight ahead St Nicholas Church (the church is not accessible by car)) and follow the narrow road above the village, where there is a large marked parking lot.
Path description:
At the beginning of the large parking lot above Maca we see the mountain direction signs, and we continue to the right, across the whole parking lot in the direction of Zavetišče v Hudičevem borštu, Javor's Peak, Potoška gora and St James. From the end of the parking lot, the marked cart track continues. Cart track, which has a few small junctions in the lower part where you follow the markings, climbs gently to moderately at first, and then slightly steeper for a short time. After crossing the torrent, cart track gradually lays down and leads to a marked crossroads where mountain direction signs direct you left onto a well-trodden and well-maintained mountain path. The marked trail immediately passes into a fairly dense forest, through which it climbs for a while along the torrential ravine, then turns slightly more to the right and leads us in a few detours to a less visible crossroads, where the trail to the left branches off towards Dom na Kališču (the branch is marked with an inscription on a tree), and we continue straight on, following the trail, which gradually leads us into a more sparse forest. Higher up, the increasingly sparse forest ends and the path leads us to the grassy slopes from which we have a beautiful view across Gorenjska. A good 10-minute climb up the above-mentioned grassy slope is followed and we arrive at the spring in Hudičev boršt, at which there is a marked crossroads.
Continue right again (left Dom na Kališču, Dolga njiva, Srednji vrh. . . ) and after a minute or two of further walking you will arrive at the Shelter in Hudičev Boršt.
From the shelter, continue eastwards, quickly leaving Hudičev boršt and arriving at the place where you emerge from the forest. At the initial part of the descent, a moderate downhill is aided by a steel cable, which continues for a few metres over a relatively steep slope. The trail continues along the fairly steep grassy slope of Zaplata, which is extremely avalanche-prone in winter. The crossing of the grassy slope, which is particularly dangerous for slipping in a few places in wet conditions, but otherwise technically easy, ends after about 15 minutes and the path leads us into the forest. After about 15 minutes of crossing through the forest, we arrive at a marked crossroads, where we continue slightly to the right in the direction of Javor's Peak (to the left Cjanovca and Srednji vrh, to the right Potoška gora, Spodnja Kokra, St. Jakob. . . ). The trail continues along and along the ridge, which is initially scenic in places, and occasionally descends a little. A little further on, the path passes into the forest and starts to climb steeply along the north-west ridge of the Javor peak. Just below the summit, the forest ends and we are only a few steps away from the summit.

Discussion about the trail Mače - Javorov vrh (Mačenska pot)

" pot nas pripelje na razgledna travnata pobočja, s katerih se nam odpre lep pogled po Gorenjski."

Od tu dalje je pot ena sama poezija. Prekrasno.
