Access to the starting point:
From Škofja Loka, drive towards Gorenjska vas and on to Hotavlje (Hotavlje can also be reached from the route of Žiri and Sovodnja), where you turn right towards the village of Leskovica and the Cerkno ski centre. After a few 100 m, leave the road leading to the village Leskovica and continue driving to the right in the direction of Blegoš and the Marmor Hotavlje factory. Continue past the factory and the quarry, then reach the next crossroads, where you turn slightly left in the direction of Volaka. Continue along the Volaščice River, and we calmly "overlook" all the left and right turns and follow the road to the confluence of the Volaščice River and the Javorjeva Grapa River. There is a small parking lot at the confluence, and there are also mountain signs for Blegoš nearby.
Path description:
At the parking lot, we see signs for Blegoš, which direct us to a steep road that climbs between nearby houses. The road ends at the last house, and we continue our ascent on the right-hand of the two tracks. Cart track continues to climb crosswise above Volaščica, and then, just after we have crossed the grassy slope, leads to an unmarked crossroads, where we continue on the right marked path (slightly to the left, the source of Volaščice and the village Leskovica - unmarked path). The path goes higher up to an old mulatier, which we follow crosswise over relatively steep, forested slopes. Higher up, cross a wooden bridge over a steep ravine, and then the path climbs steeply for a short distance. The way forward is soon laid, and then leads us in a moderate climb to the nearby road, which comes from Leskovice.
Above the road we see the markings for Zavetišče gorske straže na Jelencih, which direct us to the right, to a slightly more exposed track. Cart track soon turns into a footpath, which steeply ascends. Higher up, cross a small stream, and the path gradually lays down behind it, and after a few minutes' further walking leads to a forest road, which you follow to the right (straight ahead Zavetišče gorske straže na Jelencih, Koča na Blegošu in Blegoš).
From the crossroads onwards the markings end and we walk along the road for a few minutes. After a short crossing, the road first turns quite left and then, in the middle of a longer bend, in a kind of torrential valley, we leave it and continue along cart track, which continues along the valley floor and soon turns right. Continue for some time on cart track, which climbs through the forest, and at a few small forks follow the better-trodden path. At higher elevations, leave the track and follow the UPT 100 km route markers. A few minutes of steep climbing follow, and then we reach the marked path leading from the First Level to the Cottage on Blegoš, but we just cross the above-mentioned dirt track and continue straight towards the summit of Blegoš.
Although the branch is marked, the way ahead is not marked, but it is well trodden and relatively easy to navigate. A little higher, we cross a pasture fence and the path leads us out of the forest, onto the grassy slopes of Blegoš, which we climb to the summit in a few minutes, with increasingly beautiful views.
