Geocache Description:


SLO: Nad Preddvorom se na višini 1283 metrov nad morjem nahaja z gozdom poraščen vrh, imenovan Potoška gora.

Avto pustimo na enem od označenih parkirišč. Parkirišča so, odvisno od dneva v tednu in ure ter vremena, precej zasedena, a običajno se kje najde kakšno mesto za avtomobil.

S parkirišča ob domu starejših občanov nadaljujemo pot peš po cesti. Ko prispemo do zgornjega parkirišča, zavijemo v gozd. Pot nas vodi mimo ruševin Novega gradu (Pusti grad), ki si ga je vredno ogledati. Za nadaljevanje predlagamo Juhantovo pot, seveda pa lahko izberemo tudi katerokoli od ostalih poti ali cest. Vse namreč vodijo proti na 681 m nad morjem ležeči Iskrški koči na Sv. Jakobu (Sv. Jakob by Gamsi). Pot se stalno vzpenja (včasih je bolj, včasih manj strma). Vrh Sv. Jakoba dosežemo v dobri uri (1 h 15 min).

Pot nadaljujemo od Iskrške koče po severni strani cerkvice Sv. Jakoba v smeri Potoške gore in Javorovega vrha. Sprva se pot malo spusti, nato pa se v gozdu prične ponovno vzpenjati. Po kakšnih 15 minutah hoje prispemo do križišča. Pot naravnost vodi proti Javorovem vrhu, mi izberemo desno pot proti Potoški gori. Po redkem gozdu se strmo vzpenjamo. Na mestih se nam odpre lep razgled na okoliške gore in dolino. Po pol ure od križišča prispemo na poraščen vrh, ki ne nudi razgleda. Pričaka nas oznaka za Potoško goro, vpisno knjigo (žig je v Iskrški koči na Sv. Jakobu) in klopca.

Zaklad je skrit približno dva metra s poti. Teren okoli njega ni izpostavljen. GPS signal lahko malo skače, zaradi česar je na voljo namig. Nikakor pa se ni potrebno podati na izpostavljen teren.

Pot lahko nadaljujemo s spustom do sedla in naprej proti 45 minut oddaljenem Javorovem vrhu (1434 m - Javorov vrh). Vračamo se po isti poti. V gozdu pod Sv. Jakobom lahko sledimo oznake za Senčnica Josipine Turnograjske (570 m - Zmiraj krasna je narava).


ENG: There is 1283 m height with trees overgrown hill above Preddvor called Potoška gora.

Leave the car at one of marked parking spaces. These parking places can be, depending on the day, time and weather very occupied, but you can usually find the spot to squeeze your car.

From the lower parking above the senior citizens home continue your hike on the road. When you reach upper parking place you turn in the forest. The path lead us near the ruins of the New castle (Pusti grad) that are worth to see. To continue we recommend taking the path called Juhantova pot, but you can take any other path as well. They all lead to the 681 m height mountain hut Iskrška koča on Sv. Jakob (Sv. Jakob by Gamsi). The path constantly ascents, sometimes more, sometimes less steep and you reach the top of Sv. Jakob in a good hour (1 h 15 min).

You continue the hike from the Iskrška koča on the North side of the church in the direction of Potoška gora and Javorov vrh. The path firstly declines. In the forest it starts to ascent again. In about 15 minutes you reach the crossroads. The left path takes directly to the Javorov vrh. We choose the right path towards Potoška gora. The forest opens and you can appreciate the views. The path is steeper than before. After about half an hour after the crossroad you reach the top of Potoška gora. The top is overgrown with forest, it has a logbook (the stamp is in Iskrška koča hut), a bench and markings of the top.

The cache is hidden approximately two meters from the path. The terrain is not dangerous. The GPS signal is unstable, therefor we have the hint. There is no need to go on dangerous terrain.

You can continue the path with a decline to the ridge and continue towards Javorov vrh (1434 m - Javorov vrh) that you reach in 45 minutes. You can return taking the same path as before. You can follow the marking for Shade of Josepina Turnograjska - Senčnica Josipine Turnograjske (570m - Zmiraj krasna je narava).
