Access to the starting point:
From the motorway Ljubljana - Jesenice take the exit Lipce, where you turn right towards Jesenice. In the village of Javornik, turn left at the traffic lights towards the town centre. At the second traffic-lighted junction (by the gymnasium), turn right back towards Tomšičeva cesta, passing the primary school on the left. Drive for another 2. 5 km to the end of Tomšičeva Street, or to where the last bus stop is located at the bottom of the slope along the line. Here is a large parking lot, or our starting point.
Path description:
From the parking lot, follow the tarmac road uphill, where just below the summit you will see a track on your left, which you can follow up and turn left, passing the gardens on your left. Immediately you come into the vicinity of the residential buildings on the left, where you cross the short cart track (which leads only to the nearby water intake on the right). The track now climbs slightly towards the power line, which you quickly reach. Here turn right uphill to the east on a dirt track.
Shortly after reaching another power line, the path turns left into a short copse (where in summer you come across a wire fence), after which you join an east-west (hunting) footpath. Turn left (west) across a pasture, at the end of which you see a small bench, and here we continue right up a steeper slope. Soon the steepness eases and the path turns left towards an exposed rocky "baba" where we can enjoy the view.
Continue into the deciduous forest (westwards), where the path crossing the slope first descends slightly and then leads into a slightly wider area of coniferous forest. Here, among the ferns, you come to the edge where there is a crossroads from where you continue right along the edge for another 40 m. When you come to another crossroads, finally turn left - west. The partially winding path in this direction crosses a small ravine and after a while turns left to the south uphill, the top of which turns right - west again. Here you walk for a short distance through a nice level coniferous forest (flat), about 15 m from the left edge. At the end of the flat, the path turns slightly right, from where it crosses the slope of Jelenkamn again at the same height.
Son you reach a viewpoint on the left (balcony), where you continue right uphill. After a while, on the path heading west again, we come across two small forks (the first one on the right, (the straight hunting path)). After crossing a narrow ravine, in a fairly short time we find ourselves on a marked path coming from the left (the starting point of Ukova), and here we continue to the right - eastwards uphill. After a few minutes of climbing, we come out of the forest to a place with a partial view of the valley, but it doesn't last long. When we see a bench on the left, the path turns sharp left (almost back to the north-west) and climbs only moderately. Son, however, the markings direct us uphill, straight north and then increasingly right to the east, and we reach the first viewpoint towards the Ljubljana basin (the ridge). From here the path goes left uphill and then right again towards the second (main) viewpoint, located 50 m to the right of the marked path on the rocks with a bench. From this ridge, the path climbs steadily uphill to the left, heading north, and soon you will come across the first steel cable. After 20 m of the guarded path, the steepness first eases and then the path climbs one last time towards the summit, which can be reached in a few minutes.
