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.
Behind the church, the path returns into the forest and starts descending towards few minutes distant marked crossing, where we continue straight in the direction of Storžič and Kališče.
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 Poljane, and we go right towards Kališče. The path from the crossing becomes a little narrower and less beaten. Further, we for long time cross the slopes towards the east. On the path, there are taking turns forest and grassy slopes, which are on some spots also pretty steep. While crossing the path occasionally ascends a little steeper, and few times also slightly descends. In the second part of the crossing, the path brings us to the source below the saddle Bašeljsko sedlo. Here the path turns slightly to the right and is still crossing slopes until it brings us to a marked crossing.
To the right leads the path towards the mountain hut Dom na Kališču to which there is only few minutes of walking, and we go sharply left on the path towards Storžič. At the crossing otherwise also the path towards Bašeljski vrh and Mali Grintovec branches off. A gently sloping path then with nice views quickly brings us on a saddle Bašeljsko sedlo, where joins the path from Jezersko. On the saddle signpost for Storžič points us on the path which goes towards the west (straight). The path which starts ascending steeply through dwarf pines after 30 minutes of ascent brings us on the ridge of Storžič. The path soon avoids the ridge on a steep southern slopes of Storžič. This part of the path is dangerous for slipping, in wet we have to be very careful. The steepness then decreases a little, and the path continues on a ridge or a little below it. Few meters below the summit we join the path which comes from Žrelo (also from the mountain pasture Javornik and from Psica). We continue right and in few steps we reach the peak on which stands a cross.
On the way: Dom na Lovrencu (Bašelj) (860m), Sveti Lovrenc (Bašelj) (892m), Izvir pod Bašeljskim prevalom (1510m), Bašeljski preval (1630m)
