Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Kranj - vzhod and follow the road ahead in the direction of Jezersko. From Zgornje Jezersko we continue driving towards Austria, and we are driving there to the border crossing Jezerski vrh, where we park on a marked parking lot on the Slovenian or Austrian side.
Path description:
On Austrian side of the border crossing we notice yellow hiking signposts, which point us on a footpath which leads by the national border. The marked path soon joins the mountain road which is gradually turning to the right and in a gentle ascent brings us to a smaller mountain pasture, on which stands a hunting cottage.
At the hunting cottage, we leave bad mountain road and we go left in the direction of the path Kranjska pot on Pristovški Storžič (on a sign caption »Storschitz Krainersteig«). The path which goes further on the road leads on less demanding and a little longer path on Pristovški Storžič.
The path from the mountain pasture ahead ascends through a meadow and soon brings us into the forest, where higher it crosses a mountain road, and when we then again step on the road, we follow it to the left. We then leave the road and we go right on an indistinct ridge, on which we are ascending on a grassy slope by the edge of the forest. Increasingly steep path leads us on quite steep eastern slopes, where we also get help from some steel cables. Next follows a steep ascent by the steel cable, which with increasingly beautiful views brings us on the western slopes of Pristovški Storžič, which are vegetated with dwarf pines. Further, the path again turns towards the ridge and ascends by the next steel cable. When we reach the ridge, to a panoramic summit separates us only few steps of walking.
