Access to the starting point:
To get to the starting point: a) from central Slovenia, take the motorway to exit Unec, then turn right towards Mountain pasture. When you arrive in the village, turn left towards Postojna, then pay attention at the end of the village, where direction signs direct you to the right towards Strmca and Predjama. Follow this road straight ahead at the next crossroads and you will soon reach Lohača, where you turn right uphill. The asphalt road turns to macadam and we continue to the saddle where there are mountain signs and a cross. b) From Primož, drive to Postojna, where you continue towards Predjama. Pass the village Zagon, then turn right towards Studenec and Strmca. Follow this road to Lohača, where you turn left uphill. The asphalt road turns to macadam and we continue to the saddle where there are mountain signs and a cross. Park nearby.
Path description:
At the starting point turn left in the direction of Sv. Lovrenec. After about a minute's walk, turn right at the rock onto the grassy cart track (information board about the route). Ahead we have Lipovec (1005m) and a steep path that leads us to a scenic peak with always better views. Then we descend along the ridge to the west, where we can already see our destination. Descend to the saddle, where you cross cart track (lower route). Continue straight up for a little while longer, and then a sign and cairns invite you to the right to the summit of Špilnik. Follow the path past the rope fence. With the effects of the ice storm visible, after a few minutes we climb to the summit, then the path heads north and soon reaches the main summit.
