The route begins at the car park at the train station. Turn left onto the main road and left again towards Ljubljana at the crossroads at the town hall. At the temporary roundabout, drive towards Brezje, cross an unprotected level crossing and immediately after it, turn right and drive along the railway. Drive past Sončni dvori and continue across the bridge where the road splits. On the left, there's the 'Pr' Atku Inn , ; this path takes you to the Bičje natural reserve and flood water retention basin . However, you turn right onto a marked cycle lane . Then an ascent follows through the village to the chapel, where the road changes from asphalt to macadam . At the second crossroads, turn left, but the path splits again after just a few metres . The left one leads into the forest, but you'll take the right one, go across the bridge and drive along the road running under power lines all the way to the crossroads before the village of Sela . The road leading to the village is lined with young lindens . Then you'll come onto asphalt, but since you're turning left, you'll be back on macadam shortly .
Beware of the bear
Stick to the edge of the forest. This is an area where bears live so better stick to the road and not drive off into the forest. Drive along the edge of the forest or in the open for quite some time. All the way to Bičje, you'll enjoy the view of Grosuplje and the surrounding hills in the background.
Macadam becomes asphalt again in Bičje , . Continue through Bičje, where you turn right and drive on through the village of Podgorica and on to Št. Jurij . In Št. Jurij, you can see the mighty Church of St. George. At the crossroads, turn right onto the Grosuplje–Turjak road and go up a rather steep 1.2-kilometre slope (15% road grade) to Velike Lipljene. The road is quite busy so be careful when driving uphill.
Mayor's Cave (Županova jama) and Tabor Hill
When you get to Velike Lipljene, you'll see a crossroads with a signpost marked Županova jama . Turn sharply left as the signpost shows and descend along a road with 12% grade through the forest to the Mayor's Cave, a gem of the Slovenian underground. If you're there in time for organised tours , you can enter the cave and have a look around it. We recommend you dress up warmly (you really must change into dry clothes!), as the entrance to the cave is through an ice hall . Further on, the road becomes macadam and runs entirely through the forest, which offers pleasant coolness, especially in summer . While descending from the Mayor's Cave, there's the Tabor Hill with a fortress and belfry of the Church of St. Nicholas on your right. There's also an ancient burial ground here . While driving through the forest, you can observe the diverse karst landscape , .
Horses, donkeys, goats...
In Ponova vas , you'll be back on asphalt and at the crossroads with the view of Grosuplje , you need to turn sharply right, back towards the Mayor's Cave in the direction of Cerovo . All the way to Cerovo , where a view of Spodnja Slivnica opens up, the road will lead you uphill. A famous stable is located in Cerovo. They also have a few donkeys and goats, which is interesting mainly for children. At the end of the village, turn right onto macadam and drive through the forest across the area of bears again. The path runs partly along an area of cut down trees under power lines. When you first exit the forest , turn left; the path is still macadam. It runs past a ranch, where you'll be greeted once again by beautiful horses , and then the forest ends and you'll find yourself back on asphalt in Spodnja Slivnica .
Drive through the steep new section of the village, turn left at the top and go straight on at the NOB (national liberation struggle) monument and the Church of Saints Peter and Paul . If you turned left and then right at a large walnut tree, and drove to the end of asphalt, you'd reach a deck in Slivnica with a wonderful view of Grosuplje and the Grosuplje Plain on the right, and Mala vas and Cerovo and Tabor above them on the left . The renowned Prešeren Hiking Trail runs through Spodnja Slivnica.
When you set out from the church into the valley, stick to the road turning left and running past the fire station. This road takes you past the Grosuplje commercial zone. However, you can avoid the traffic on this road and turn right onto a road which is much steeper and brings you to Grosuplje along a macadam field path. Cross the level crossing in the valley, turn left at the crossroads under the power lines, and if you turn left at the crossroads and cross the level crossing, you'll reach the main road again.
From the commercial zone, drive on along the overpass over the railway, turn left at the crossroads and you're back at the starting point of this route, at the car park next to the Grosuplje train station.
