Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Kranj - vzhod and follow the road ahead in the direction of Jezersko. In the hamlet Bajte, which is located approximately 1 km after the inn Kanonir, we turn left in the direction of hospital Krtina, on a narrower asphalt road which we then follow to the first crossroad. Here we continue right in the direction of farm Spodnji Virnik (straight quarry Lehnjaka and hospital Krtina). The road which is further ascending by the stream Murnov graben loses an asphalt covering and starts gradually ascending steeper and steeper. We soon come to the next crossroad, where we continue on the right road (straight Spodnji Virnik). An ascending road, we then follow to a larger meadow, where left below the road we notice homestead Murn. We continue few more 10 meters and the road brings us to a crossroad by which we notice signposts for Virnikov Grintovec. Here we continue very sharply right and then a little higher we park on an appropriate place by the road.
Path description:
From the starting point, we descend few steps, and then we go on a footpath in the direction of Virnikov Grintovec. The path ahead ascends by the edge of the forest, slightly higher it turns to the right and passes into a dense forest, where we continue in a diagonal ascent towards the right. After few minutes of easy walking the path for a short time a little steeper ascends, and then it brings us to a marked crossing, where we join the marked path from Zgornje Jezersko.
At the crossing, we continue sharply left and we continue the ascent on a pleasant forest path, which higher entirely flattens and turns a little to the right, where it crosses slopes of Žarkove peči (1411 meters). After few minutes of easy walking we step out of the forest, on a larger clearing (saddle Žingerc 1345 meters), where from the right side joins the path from the Austrian 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.
