Access to the starting point:
From Železniki drive to Tolmin or vice versa, and follow the road to Petrovo Brdo, where you can park at the parking lot next to the Petrovo Brdo mountain hut. The mountain lodge is located in the immediate vicinity of the crossroads where the road to Soriška mountain pasture branches off.
Path description:
At the mountain lodge, we see signs for Črna prst, which direct us to a very steep path. After a short steep climb, we come to a wide cart track, which we follow to the right and which quickly leads us to a torrential stream. The marked cart track soon turns slightly to the left and then climbs quite steeply through the forest. After about half an hour's walk, you will come to the mountain signposts where the crossroads is marked.
Continue in the route Črna prst (Kup and Podbrdo to the left) and follow the ascending cart track, which turns to the right at a higher altitude and becomes completely flat. After a few minutes of further walking, leave cart track and continue the ascent on the marked footpath. After a short climb, the path flattens out a little and leads to an old but well-preserved mulatier. The ascent continues along the above-mentioned mulatier, which leads us through the forest and a few ravines to a crossroads near the Hunter's bivouac at Koucah. Here we continue straight on (right Lajnar and Slatnik) and after a few 10 steps of further walking we arrive at the aforementioned bivouac (Lovčev bivouac is only the name of a hut and it is not possible to bivouac there).
From the Hunter's bivouac continue along the marked trail in the direction of Črna prst. The trail continues through the lane of a forest, then gradually passes onto increasingly scenic slopes, from which we have a view of the peaks and slopes surrounding the Baška Grapa. Higher up, the path curves slightly to the left and begins to descend gently. The path then bypasses the old barracks and leads us only a few 10 m further to the hunting hut on Vrhu Bače.
From the hunting lodge, continue in the direction of Črna prst, and then, just a few steps below the indistinct saddle Vrh Bače, continue right in the direction of Šavnik and Cairn. The way forward climbs steeply through the forest for a short time, then leads to a grassy leveling, where the path is transiently laid. Here we are joined on the right by a barely visible path (shortcut), which "intersects" the hunting lodge (the latter path can be used when descending is approx. 10 min. closer, and the branch is also marked). The way forward returns to the forest, where after a short climb leads us to an old military bunker, which is converted into a kind of weekend, and the path only bypasses it on the right. The moderately steep path then leads us to the edge of the ridge (here we can climb in a few steps to a beautiful viewpoint - a view of Baško Grapa and Kobla) along which we then climb through more or less compacted forest. Higher up, the trail turns left and completely flattens out. A good 5 minute walk follows, and then the path leads to a larger grassy slope between Šavnik and Slatnik. Here we continue on an easy path which turns to the right and after a few steps leads us to a marked crossroads. Continue slightly left in the direction of Šavnik (straight mountain pasture after Šavnik and Cairn) along the path which turns into lane of the forest through which it starts to climb steeply. Higher up, you leave the forest on grassy and raspberry-covered slopes, over which you climb in a transverse ascent to the south-east ridge of Šavnik. Here the path turns slightly to the left and continues along and along the ridge already mentioned. This relatively steep and increasingly scenic route is then followed all the way to the summit.
