Access to starting point:
First, we drive to Tržič, and then we continue driving towards the gorge Dovžanova soteska and Lom pod Storžičem. At the end of Tržič, near the factory Lepenka, we leave the main road towards Dovžanova soteska and we continue driving right in the direction of Lom pod Storžičem. Above the Lom pod Storžičem we get to the village Grahovše, and we follow the road in the direction of the mountain hut Dom pod Storžičem. After approximately 7.7 km of driving from the crossroad at factory Lepenka, of this 3.7 km macadam, we get to the parking lot near Dom pod Storžičem, where we park.
Path description:
From the starting point, we continue in the direction of Storžič, Tolsti vrh and Kriška gora and with first strides we continue on the road, on which we get to the bottom edge of the mountain pasture Jesenje. Here the marked path on Javorniški preval branches off to the left, slightly to the right is a road, on which we can get to Mala Poljana, and we continue straight by the left edge of the mountain pasture in the direction of Storžič. After a short ascent, we get to a wooden cottage, where we continue left in the forest (straight Mala and Velika Poljana and Tolsti vrh).
The path ahead leads us on a cart track, from which soon a very demanding path through Žrelo branches off to the right, and we continue straight. Further cart track becomes steeper, and higher changes into quite steep mountain path. The path further at first is mostly ascending through the forest, higher it gets thinner several times and from the path a nice view opens up, which reaches all the way to Triglav. Next diagonal ascent towards the left follows, after that at an altitude of approximately 1700 meters we get to a marked crossing, where the path from the saddle Javorniški preval joins.
We continue right, and then we are ascending diagonally on the western slopes of the ridge Škarjev rob, from where we have a nice view towards the path in front of us and Storžič. Higher, the path brings us on the mentioned ridge, from which a view also opens up on Jezersko's side, where we clearly see highest peaks of Kamnik Savinja Alps. Further, we are ascending through a lane of dwarf pines, and then we pass on the scree, where in the early summer we can still run into snow fields. Next ascent by the edge of the scree follows, and then we get to technically more demanding part of the path, where at first we cross slightly exposed gully (if it is covered with snow then without the use of winter equipment there's a great risk of slipping), and then we are ascending on a steep small valley, which is exposed to falling stones. In the upper part of the small valley we have safety catches for help, and the path then turns a little to the right. Next follows approximately 10 minutes of ascent on a quite steep slope and the path with increasingly beautiful view brings us to the top of Storžič.
