The route starts at the car park next to the railway or bus station , but it can also start in front of the driving school on the other side of the road , where you start by driving along the main road to the crossroads on the right, where you turn towards Krka or Dobrepolje. At the next crossroads, turn left at JOŠT hotel interier and drive on a plain with a view extending from Polževo to Veliko Mlačevo . You can turn right here towards Boštanj, where you can take a look at the ruins of Boštanj Castle, the Church of St. Martin and the Radenci Plain .
But perhaps you'd rather continue up a low hill past Lobček and Plešivica, where you then descend to Luče. At the crossroads where the road branches off right towards Ilova Gora there's an NOB (national liberation struggle) monument .
Viaduct with railway
The entire route runs through forests, which are, particularly in summer, pleasantly cool. At the crossroads to Žalna, turn left off the main road and you'll find yourself at the beginning of Velika Loka. Descend into the village along a narrow road . At the crossroads, you can check out the Church of St. Anton , and then turn right towards Višnja Gora . After the first turn, you'll be greeted by a mighty viaduct with railway, under which you'll continue your way towards Mala Loka .
If you go straight on at the crossroads to Žalna, you'll get to the Pr' Mrtinet Bar, where you can earn yourself a stamp for a sausage with their tag . Worth making a turn!
High Mala Loka
After a pleasant drive on a plain, a steep ascent , starts lasting all the way to Mala Loka and further on to Peščenik, where you need to turn left onto the main road . From Peščenik, which lies rather high, you can see the surrounding hills and valleys; you can also treat yourself to a short break .
Long descent and motorway
Next up is a descent along the main road. Then turn right off the main road at the crossroads towards Spodnje Brezovo. Fortunately for you, as this way you avoid the Špaja dolina Landfill. This asphalt path runs through the forest all the time. Drive through Spodnje Brezovo, turn left in the village and then immediately right over the motorway, then right again and left again.
On working days and during rush hours, the road from Spodnje Brezovo to Polica can be rather busy, as it's used as a detour road upon traffic jams or closings of the motorway. After crossing the motorway, make another ascent through the forest along an asphalt road to the crossroads, where you'll turn right under the motorway and then you'll make two left turns in Polica. You'll reach the foot of the hill with the Church of St. James , which can also be reached along a really steep and narrow path, if you turn left at the crossroads. But our route turns right onto the main road and runs mainly through the forest.
High above Grosuplje
This slight ascent will bring you to a crossroads . If you turned right, you'd come to Kožljevec and on to Mali Vrh. Instead, turn left and, at the following crossroads, left again. A bit further on the left, you can see the remnants of a former mill called Dolinski mlin by the road . After a slight slope, you'll descend through the forest and at the next crossroads follow the signpost for Dole, which will lead you to Dole pri Polici. Here, you can take a look at the Church of St. Lucia . At the beginning of the village, there is a crossroads, where you'll turn left and proceed up a steep slope. On the top of the slope, you'll enjoy an amazing view of the surrounding hills and, if the weather is fine, you'll also be able to see the Kamnik-Savinja Alps . At the crossroads, stick to the left again. If you went straight on, you'd descend to Ljubljana, and if you turned right, you'd come to Pance . But since you've turned left, you'll come to Mali Lipoglav . Go straight on at the crossroads; if you turned right, you'd come to Veliki Lipoglav. This time, Mali Lipoglav again offers a view of the hills surrounding Grosuplje . There's a crossroads to Šmarje in Mali Lipoglav and that's where you're headed, to the Pr' Jakopc Tourist Farm . You'll also see an interesting fruit drying house by the road . A bit further on, there's a beautifully renovated Sostro Primary School, Lipoglav subsidiary school, with a kindergarten.
Descend to the finish line
Next up is a descent through the forest. Turn right at the first crossroads and left at the second (if you turned right, you'd come to Repče). A view of Grosuplje opens up . Stick to the main road and descend all the way to Šmarje - Sap , . If you turned left before the descent and drive on macadam for a kilometre, you'd reach the church on Magdalenska gora . At the crossroads, turn left towards Paradišče, and drive through the village and under the motorway. Considering the fact that the underpass is brand new and that this road is often used in the event of congestion on the motorway, it's beyond comprehension as to why it is so narrow . The road is also dangerous for the abundance of cyclists driving along it. You can never be too careful while driving through the underpass! After the underpass, turn left before the roundabout in Cikava and drive parallel to the motorway until you reach the signpost marked Hrastje, where you turn right onto a macadam path along a small forest , . You're on a courtyard of a farm in Zgornje Brvace, where asphalt starts again; then you descend to Brvace to the main road to Grosuplje . At the crossroads, turn left and drive across two more roundabouts, then turn towards Turjak and you're back at the starting point, the car park next to the railway station.
