Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Kranj - east and follow the road ahead in the direction of Jezersko, but only to the inn Kanonir, where we turn left and we follow at first still asphalt road. At all crossroads we go towards signs for Storžič. When the road makes a sharp right turn we notice signposts for Kališče and Storžič. We park on a parking lot near the signpost, the way that we don't hinder forestry work. The road is from 20/7 to 20/10 CLOSED. When the road is closed we park lower, this extends ascent for one hour.
Path description:
At the turn we go on a cart track which is left from the signposts. Already after few meters, we notice a blaze on the tree which shows us, that we are on the right path. After a good five minutes of walking signpost points us to left on a footpath. The path which starts moderately ascending soon brings us on a cart track which we only cross. The path only about a minute ahead again crosses a cart track, and then it ascends steeper. The path is slowly turning slightly towards the left and it brings us on a smaller ridge, where we get very close to the cart track. For some time we are ascending by the cart track, and then the footpath brings us to the vantage point, where there stands a bench. The path ahead again brings us on a cart track, but this time to the spot, where it ends. Possible is also access on a cart track (at all crossings we stick to the left direction, and beginning is the same). The path ahead is a little hard to follow because large amounts of the fallen trees preventing ascent on a marked path therefore we have to find passages, which are only partly beaten. When we overcome this part, the path is again easier to follow, but only a short time. The path ahead gets close to a clearing, which is situated below Storžič and it turns left among fallen trees. Again we are looking for passages among trees. Some meters before hut Praprotnikova koča we again step on a marked path on which in few steps we come to the hut. The path ahead again steeply ascends, and then turns right and crosses slopes in a gentle ascent to gravel, which was deposited by torrent. The path ahead leads us between two boulders and after few steps of descent again starts ascending. We soon come into dwarf pines, where a view opens up. The path ahead ascends below the walls of Bašeljski vrh, which we bypass on the bottom side. At first, we cross smaller scree and then the path brings us in a gully, which is situated in dwarf pines. Ascent through the gully isn't demanding but caution is needed mainly at descent because of the gravel, which is on stone grounding. The path from the gully brings us on a pleasant meadow on which a view opens up on the south side. At the signposts, we turn right towards Storžič (left Kališče). 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.
