Access to starting point:
A) From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Brnik, when we reach the road Mengeš - Kranj, we continue left towards Kranj. On the main road towards Kranj we drive to first roundabout, from where we continue on first exit right in the direction of Šenčur. Through Šenčur we continue on the main road, after we reach the road Kranj - Zgornje Jezersko, we continue right in the direction of Jezersko. When we get to Preddvor we leave the main road and we continue driving left towards the center of the mentioned settlement, from there we follow the signs for settlement Bašelj. A little after the settlement Bašelj the road descends to a stream Milka and over a bridge also crosses it. Here the road, on which we get to Babni Vrt branches off to the right, and we drive above the settlement, where asphalt road towards last homestead turns left, and we continue right. Further, we drive past the quarry, and behind it we get to a smaller crossroad, by which we park on an appropriate place.
B) From highway Jesenice - Ljubljana we go to the exit Kranj west, and then we continue driving towards Golnik. When we get to Tenetiše we leave the main road towards Golnik and we continue driving right in the direction of Trstenik. Approximately 1 km after the settlement Trstenik we get to a smaller crossroad, where at first road towards the settlement Povlje branches off to the left, few 100 meters ahead also towards Babni Vrt. We continue towards Babni Vrt, from the crossroad above the settlement we turn right on a macadam road, on which we then drive past the quarry. We park behind quarry on an appropriate place by the next crossroad.
Path description:
From the starting point, we continue on the left road which continues on the right side of quarry (straight path below Storžič), and a little ahead splits in two wide cart tracks. We continue on the right cart track which immediately goes into the forest, after that is at first gently, and after left hairpin turn moderately to steeply ascending. Further at the crossings we follow right directions, and on a smaller saddle we continue left upwards, on a rough cart track which soon ends. From the end of the cart track, we start steeply ascending on a forest path, and there in few minutes we reach another cart track which we follow to the right, and there we quickly join the path from Bašelj or Laško.
We continue left upwards and after a minute or two of additional walking, we get to hut Dom na Lovrencu.
From the hut, we continue in the direction of Javornik, Velika and Mala Poljana, Kališče and Storžič, on the path which moderately ascends through the forest. A well-beaten path quickly leads out of the forest on an ample meadow, through which in nice views we walk to the church of St. Lovrenc.
We continue on a meadow past the church and the path soon brings us into the forest. Further wide path slightly descends to small indistinct saddle, where joins the path from a little higher starting point. Further, we continue in the direction of Storžič still on a wide path, which is slightly ascending. The path soon becomes narrower and is then for quite some time steeply ascending through the forest. Higher, the path finally brings us out of the forest and nice views open up on the southern slopes of Storžič. The steepness is still not decreasing all the way to a bench on crossing.
Left leads a marked path towards Javornik and Poljana, and right towards Kališče. At the crossing, we don't continue left or right, but on an unmarked footpath which leads straight. A little worse beaten path we will notice left from the tree on which there are signposts. From the crossing, the path is ascending on a grassy slope, which becomes steeper and soon brings us near the indistinct gully. Here we continue a little to the left and then we are ascending left from the mentioned gully towards the southwest ridge of Storžič. The slope is on this side also a little more vegetated with trees. The path is otherwise poorly beaten, but we can follow it without any bigger problems. When we get closer to the ridge, the path turns to the right and crosses grassy slopes. Next follows a shorter steep ascent to the ridge. Grassy slopes are on a larger part of the path pretty steep and are in wet very dangerous for slipping. And also in dry some caution is needed.
When we reach the ridge, we continue right and we are then ascending on mostly grassy and relatively steep ridge. On steeper parts path few times avoids the ridge on left or right side. We follow the ridge all the way until we join the marked path from the mountain pasture Planina Javornik. The marked path then turns slightly to the right and soon join also paths from Dom pod Storžičem and Kališče. To the top, which we already see in front of us then only a short ascent follows.
We can descend over mountain pasture Planina Javornik or towards Kališče.
On the way: Dom na Lovrencu (Bašelj) (860m), Sveti Lovrenc (Bašelj) (892m)
