Access to starting point:
First, we drive to Preddvor or to the settlement Tupaliče (to here from Gorenjska highway or Kranj), and then we continue driving in the direction of Jezersko. When we get to municipality Jezersko, we will soon notice signs for inn Gostišče Kanonir. After the inn we go left on the road in the direction of Dol - Podstoržič and farm Kovk. Further, we drive on a little narrower road which leads us past houses, and after few 100 meters of additional driving, we get to a crossroad, where a steep road branches off to the left, on which also continues a marked path on Kozji vrh. We park on an appropriate place by the crossroad.
Path description:
From the starting point, we continue on the left road in the direction of Kozji vrh, by which we notice, that from 20/7 to 20/10 further driving is forbidden. About 20 minutes we walk on a quite steep road, and then we come out of the forest, on the edge of the pasture Robci, from where a nice view opens up towards the massif of Kočna.
From Robci, which are situated on the saddle between Macesnovec (1042 meters) on the left and Kozji vrh (1628 meters) on the right, we continue right, on a cart track in the direction of Kozji vrh. Cart track quickly leads in the forest, through which we start ascending steeper. At few smaller crossings we follow the blazes, cart track higher changes into a mountain path, which is then mostly ascending diagonally towards the right, and in doing so it crosses many gullies and steep slopes. In wet is on some parts greater danger for slipping, and also in dry in some parts more caution is needed. Higher through the treetops a view opens up a little, and the path brings us below the cliffs of Kozji vrh, where mainly in spring time is greater probability of falling stones. Below cliffs path leads through smaller scree, and mostly on a steep slope. When the crossing ends path brings us on an indistinct forested small saddle between Kozji vrh on the left and Turni (1432 meters) on the right.
Here we leave the marked path, which turns left and leads further on Kozji vrh (to Kozji vrh is for approximately 40 minutes) and we continue right, by an indistinct ridge, where we soon see old footpath and wire fence. When we get below the peak of Turni footpath entirely vanishes, and we only cross slopes of Turni (if we go right uphill we can after a little less than 10 minutes get to the top of Turni).
On the other side of the highest peak of Turni we get to a smaller saddle, where we notice old border stone (border stone separated region Kranjska / Carniola and region Koroška / Carinthia). From here follows a light descent towards the left and then we reach a newer cart track, on which we continue the descent to the lowest point in the ridge from Kozji vrh to Mali Grintovec (1299 meters). On the mentioned saddle cart track turns slightly to the left and continues to descend, and we continue slightly right, on a well visible footpath which continues on or slightly by the ridge. We continue through a dense forest and at first, we are slightly, and then moderately ascending. During the ascent path leads past more old border stones, and easy to follow footpath we follow to the spot, where from the ridge it turns slightly to the left and passes on a slope. On the mentioned spot, we leave nice footpath and we continue on the ridge, at first on pathless terrain, and then the footpath again appears (if we would continue left, on a footpath, we would quite quickly find out, that we are on the wrong path, because mentioned footpath soon vanishes).
The path ahead leads us on a ridge, where for few meters we steeply ascend on a slightly exposed jump, and then through a lane of dwarf pines we quickly reach pleasant viewpoint, from where a nice view opens up on surrounding mountains, most beautiful is of course look towards the massif of Kočna.
From the viewpoint opens up also a view on part of the path which is in front of us, because the foothpath through dwarf pines is well visible. Further, we are ascending diagonally through dwarf pines, and in doing so path leads us also over shorter, partly rocky and slightly exposed ledge. Higher, we get to broad ridge and behind it in thin forest, covered with grass. We continue on a steep grassy slope, where the footpath quickly vanishes. Through the mentioned slopes we ascend diagonally towards the left (in wet is this part dangerous for slipping), after that higher we again notice a footpath which we follow to the right. Next follows an ascent through a lane of dwarf pines, and then the path returns on the ridge, which we reach near two gullies. The passage above gullies, which are joined on the ridge isn't difficult, and the path after passes into longer lane of dwarf pines. The path through dwarf pines is relatively easy passable, at first runs also on still slightly exposed ridge. After approximately 20 minutes of relatively steep ascent through dwarf pines, we reach the panoramic peak Licjanovec.
We descend on the ascent route, or on a cart track, on which we step below Turni (cart track lower changes into road and leads around Kozji vrh to the starting point, or we can continue on the nearby Mali Grintovec and then we descend on a marked path through saddle Bašeljski preval.
