Access to starting point:
We drive to Zgornje Jezersko, where signs for waterfalls Ankova slapova and source of mineral water point us to the left (if we come from the direction of border crossing Jezerski vrh right). Few meters further over a small bridge we cross a smaller stream and immediately after it we get to "source" of Jezerska slatina, where there is the beginning of the described path. We park near the trough, parking ahead from the trough is prohibited with a traffic sign (at first turning point, after that a narrower macadam road). It is possible to park also higher by the road, near the partly abandoned hamlet.
Path description:
From Jezerska slatina we continue on a macadam road which leads us by the edge of pleasant and panoramic meadow, from which when we look back a nice view opens up on the highest peaks of Kamnik Savinja Alps. After few minutes of a light ascent, we get to homestead Anko, by which there is a chapel, and we continue the ascent on a little narrower road in the direction of source of mineral water and waterfalls of Anko. After nearby holiday cottages the road changes into a cart track, and there we quickly get to a marked crossing, where we continue on the left cart track in the direction of source of mineral water (slightly right waterfalls of Anko).
The path ahead leads us through a small valley, through which we get to the source of Jezerska slatina, and after the source we continue on the left cart track which starts ascending steeper and soon turns to the right. Next follows an ascent on a cart track which leads diagonally on occasionally steeper slope, and from there occasionally a nice view opens up on Pristovški Storžič. Higher at few smaller crossings we choose wider cart track, and higher it crosses a torrent ditch. On the other side of ditch, through which usually runs a stream, we diagonally ascend to forested ridge and the cart track passes on the other side of the ridge and it slowly starts getting overgrown. Few minutes we still follow more and more overgrown cart track, and then on the left side a nice passage opens on a ridge. After two or three minutes of easy pathless terrain we ascend on the ridge, where we notice a worse footpath which continues on or by the ridge, at first the footpath quite steeply ascends. A little higher footpath turns a little to the right, and then it brings us out of the forest, where on the left side we notice abandoned and decaying cottage, to which we ascend in few steps.
At the cottage, we step on the side branch of the nearby forest road, on which past the abandoned and decaying JNA guardhouse, we walk to a driving road which leads from the border crossing Jezerski vrh towards Roblekova planina.
We follow the mentioned road to the left and then we quickly get to an unmarked crossroad, where we continue on the left road (right road is Austrian forest road and leads further towards the mountain pasture Pristovnikova planina / Pristovnikalm, and it leads also to the saddle between the peak Kepp (1631 meters) and Pristovški Storžič / Kaerntner Storschitz (1759 meters) - on the mentioned road we can't come on the mentioned two peaks and neither to the mountain pasture, because of private land, the passage on part of the road is forbidden). The road, on which we continue then ascends a little, offers a nice view towards Pristovški Storžič and Kamnik Savinja Alps, and then it starts descending steeper towards Roblekova planina, which we reach after few minutes of descent. Here we stride across the national border and in few 10 strides we descend to hut on the mountain pasture Roblekova planina.
From the hut on Roblekova planina we continue left on the road which starts gently descending towards the western part of the mountain pasture. After a short descent, the road splits into two parts, and we go straight and we continue on the one, which is still gently to moderately descending. Even a little lower, we will get to yellow Austrian signposts with the caption Kl. Grintoutz / Virnikov Grintovec, which is pointing left upwards on a cart track.
At this spot, where we join the marked path which leads from the village Korte / Trögern towards Virnikov Grintovec, the path goes into the forest and it starts moderately ascending. Cart track a little higher brings us to a clearing, from which a view opens up on our destination and a little further also on Obir, and it turns a little to the right. Next follows a little more of walking on a wide cart track, and then blazes point us to the left on a narrower and gradually also increasingly steep cart track. A little higher from the left joins another cart track, and we continue right and then after few minutes of additional walking, we get to a saddle Žingerc, where we again step on the Slovenian side.
We continue in the direction of Virnikov Grintovec, on the path which goes into the forest, and it starts ascending steeper and steeper. A pretty steep path, higher brings us on the main ridge, where it turns to the left. On the ridge, from which beautiful views opening up on surrounding peaks, steepness also decreases. This occasionally very panoramic and on individual spots for slipping dangerous path (in the dry there is no significant danger) we follow all the way to the top of Virnikov Grintovec.
