Access to the starting point:
From the motorway Koper - Ljubljana, take the exit Kastelec and then turn right in the direction of Ljubljana, Kozina and Podgorje. There are two more junctions, where you keep to the direction Kozina, and when you reach the old Koper - Ljubljana road, take it to the first forest road turnoff to the right (the turnoff from the main road is near the point where the motorway enters the Kastelec tunnel). Take the aforementioned road, which immediately changes to cart track, and we park in a suitable place on the side road.
The starting point is suitable if you are coming from the direction of Kasteliec or Črni Kalo, as it is forbidden to turn onto the side road from the opposite direction. If coming from Kozina, the Varda starting point is more suitable.
Path description:
From the starting point, follow cart track, and after a few steps you will reach a marked trail, which you follow to the left (to the right, Črni Kal). The way ahead leads you through an underpass under the main road, and then on the other side, continue to the right in the direction of Varda and the Socerb castle. There are a few more forks, where you follow the signs, and then a steep climb to the top of Črnokalska Varda, where there is a registration box and a beautiful view.
There is a short descent from Varda, then a few more 10 steps on a grass-covered path to reach a large parking lot (Varda starting point in the descriptions), where you continue left to the northern edge of the parking lot.
On the northern side of the larger parking lot, you will see cart track, which you follow, and quickly reach the old benches. After the benches, cart track turns into a slightly overgrown path, which offers a nice view of the nearby Tinjan. Walk along a kind of edge for a few minutes, then the path turns slightly to the right and leads to a macadam road, which you continue straight ahead. A few 10 steps further on, the path from Kastellec and one of the paths from Ospa join us on the left.
Continue straight ahead again, or slightly to the right, and a minute or two further on you will reach a place where you join the path from the village Petrinje (at the crossroads mentioned above you also reach the SPP).
Continue left towards Socerb (right Petrinje and Slavnik), following the wider dirt road that leads through the karst landscape. A few minutes further on we reach an asphalt road, which we quickly leave, as the markings lead us slightly right, onto a path which takes us past Sveta jama (the exit to the cave is locked) and back onto the asphalt road in a few minutes. When you reach the road again, follow it all the way to Socerb Castle, which offers a fine view.
Description and pictures refer to the situation in 2016 (June).
