Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Kranj - west and follow the road ahead in the direction of Golnik. When we come in Golnik, on the top of the hill, we turn right in the direction of hospital Golnik. We park on one of the large parking lots, which is situated a little below hospital.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we walk to hospital, which we bypass on the left side, and then we come to mountain signposts, which point us on a footpath which ascends by the fence. After few steps, we cross the road, and then the footpath which ascends above the village leads in the forest, where starts ascending steeper. The path after a short ascent joins a wide cart track, on which we continue easy ascent. After few minutes from the cart track a marked footpath branches off to the right, and it soon brings us on other cart track which we soon leave as well. We continue the ascent on a quite steep path, which higher brings us to the vantage point (a view on Gorenjska and Jelovica).
After the vantage point, the path flattens and turns quite to the left, where it then continues in a moderate ascent. Higher, the footpath turns a little towards the right, where then in few minutes of additional walking brings us to the village Gozd. Here we continue past few houses, and then we join the path from the cottage Zavetišče v Gozdu.
We continue right in the direction of Kriška gora and the road which leads us past two successive NOB monuments we follow to its end. From the end of the road, we go slightly left and we continue the ascent on a wide and steep cart track, and it quickly brings us to the spot, where it splits into two parts. We continue on the left in the direction of the mountain hut Koča na Kriški gori (right Tolsti vrh). Cart track then past the water supply structure and holiday cottage passes into the forest, where we continue in a moderate ascent.
Only a little further signs for Kriška gora point us to the right (straight unmarked path on Kriška gora) on a little more rough cart track which higher changes into relatively steep footpath. Further, we are ascending on a well-settled path, by which we notice numerous benches and by them names of benches. Higher, the path brings us to a grazing fence and only a little higher it turns to the left, where it is then ascending diagonally. After few minutes of a diagonal ascent, we step out of the forest, where in front of us we already notice a mountain hut Koča na Kriški gori, to which we have only few 10 strides of easy walking.
From the mountain hut, we return few steps back, and then we continue in the direction of Tolsti vrh. The path ahead is slightly ascending on and by the main ridge of Kriška gora, and then gradually passes on the south slopes, where crosses slopes of Vrata. The path ahead then gradually returns on the ridge, on and by which it then continues for quite some time. Higher, we come on a panoramic secondary peak, from which opens up first closer view towards the summit. Next follows a short descent, and then the path starts ascending steeply on the upper slope of the mountain. Higher, we cross a short lane of a forest and then increasingly panoramic path quickly brings us on 1715 meters high peak.
