Use os.scandir() to list whatever is in the directory, DirEntry.is_dir() 
will tell you if an entry is itself a directory, and DirEntry.stat() 
will let you get at the directory's various time stats.  Which attribute 
you want depends on exactly what you mean by "the latest folder 
according to the latest date".  Then just use your favourite means to 
join the directory name you selected to the original path.
