Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Ljubelj (Tržič), and then we continue driving towards Ljubelj. Just before the gas station in Bistrica pri Tržiču we leave the main road and we continue driving right in the direction of Tržič. Further, we drive through Tržič in the direction of gorge Dolžanova soteska, and then at the end of the town we continue right in the direction of Lom pod Storžičem and Grahovše. At the end of the village Grahovše asphalt ends, and further we follow the macadam road in the direction of the mountain hut Dom pod Storžičem. This in the upper part steeper macadam road, we then follow to the parking lot near the mountain hut Dom pod Storžičem.
Path description:
From the starting point near the mountain hut Dom pod Storžičem we short time continue on the road (direction Storžič), and then we go on parallel mountain path, that is gently ascending by the edge of a meadow. On the upper part of the meadow we get to a smaller wooden cottage, where the path splits into two parts. We choose the slightly right path (left Storžič through Žrelo and over Škarjev rob), which continues on and by relatively steep cart track. The path higher flattens a little and turns to the right. Further, we are for some time ascending diagonally towards the right, and then we get by the edge of steep gully, through which we diagonally ascend to the nearby wide cart track which we reach right at its end. The mentioned cart track we immediately leave and we continue slightly left in the forest. We for some time continue through the forest, on the path which is for some time descending gently, and then we get to a smaller crossing, from where we continue in the direction of Mala Poljana.
From the crossing ahead, the path again starts ascending, and it all the time crosses slopes towards the right. Higher, we reach the cart track, on which we quickly walk to near Mala Poljana.
From Mala Poljana, where joins the path from Zalog and the path from Povlje, we continue left in the direction of Velika Poljana (slightly right Zavetišče v Gozdu, right Tolsti vrh). The path which ahead runs on a cart track, quickly goes into the forest, through which it is then ascending diagonally. After few minutes of walking, we come to panoramic slopes, from which a nice view opens up on surrounding mountains. Only a little further, the cart track turns to the right and after a short ascent, it brings us on the upper edge of Velika Poljana, from where we can in a minute or two descend to the cottage on Velika Poljana, otherwise we continue left in the direction of Storžič.
The path ahead continues on the ridge of Psica (Psica is some kind of western secondary peak of Storžič), which occasionally avoids a little to the right. After approximately half an hour ascent from the crossing on Velika Poljana, we get to the next marked crossing, which is situated below the peak of Psica.
At the mentioned crossing to the left continues very demanding path on the ridge of Psica, and we continue right in the direction of the easier path on Storžič. From the crossing ahead, the path several times diagonally descends and again ascends, and leads on slopes of Psica, from which occasionally a view opens up a little, otherwise path first part of the crossing mostly runs through the forest. After additional 30 minutes of walking, we get to a crossing, where crossing ends, and we join path which leads on Storžič on southwestern groove.
We follow the mentioned path left upwards (right downwards mountain pasture Javornik, Povlje, we can also get to a hamlet Laško and village Bašelj) and we start ascending steeply on the path which leads us on southwestern groove of Storžič. On the mentioned groove, from which increasingly beautiful views opening up towards Gorenjska, we are ascending for a good hour, and then the path turns a little to the right and brings us on the southwest ridge of Storžič, where from the right side joins an unmarked path which leads on the mentioned ridge.
We continue on a ridge and marked path then turns slightly to the right and soon join also other paths from Dom pod Storžičem and Kališče. From here to the top, which we already see in front of us, then only a short ascent follows by wonderful views.
