Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Lipce and follow the road ahead in the direction of Jesenice. When we come to the traffic light crossroad, where we join an old road, we continue right in the direction of Žirovnica. And we follow this road only a short time because at the next little larger crossroad (traffic light) we continue left in the direction of Javorniški Rovt. Road then goes through the underpass (railway) and then turns left (right Koroška Bela). Road that higher starts ascending steeply we follow in the direction of Javorniški Rovt. Road ahead runs past the mountain hut Dom Pristava (mountain hut is little above the road) and behind the hut we come on next (smaller) crossroad, where we go right. Ahead we drive on a macadam road all the way to Križovec, which we recognize by crossroad of multiple roads (by the crossroad is few smaller parking spots and a cross). .
Path description:
From Križovec we continue past a cross on the road in the direction of Pusti Rovt. Road at the beginning leads past a gate and is then slightly ascending through the forest. After approximately 15 minutes of walking, the road turns to the left and out of the forest brings us on the bottom edge of Pusti Rovt. We continue on the road which from the right joins the marked path from the mountain hut Dom Pristava v Javorniškem Rovtu, and after few 10 strides of additional walking, it brings us to the shepherd hut on Pusti Rovt.
From the shepherd hut, we continue on the road, and in the upper part Pusti Rovt it turns right in the forest. And only a little further we come at the marked crossing, where we continue slightly right (left Golica) on a moderately steep path, which only a few meters higher crosses relatively new road which leads to the mountain pasture Belska planina - Svečica. The mentioned road, we only cross and we continue the ascent on a marked path, which soon passes out of the forest on panoramic slopes below the saddle Sedlo Kočna. We continue the ascent past a smaller hunting cottage, behind which we soon come to watering place for animals. Only a short ascent follows and the path brings us on a saddle Sedlo Kočna, from which a nice view opens up on the Austrian side.
On the saddle, we continue right in the direction of Struška (left Golica and Ptičji vrh) on a relatively gently sloping path which continues by the main ridge. After few minutes, the path starts ascending steeper and then turns sharply to the right, where in a diagonal ascent crosses slopes towards the right. Higher, the path from a lane of a thin forest and bushes brings us on a panoramic ridge, where after few 10 meters of additional ascent, we cross a grazing fence.
Immediately after we crossed grazing fence, footpath splits into two parts. We continue on the right bottom and marked path (slightly left Struška on a ridge or on and by the national border), which then crosses slopes towards the southeast. Path ahead for some time continues through the forest and then passes into a lane of dwarf pines, where it again starts considerably ascending. Higher, the path for a short time again returns in the forest and then passes on a grazing area of the mountain pasture Belska planina - Svečica. Here we continue slightly left and after few minutes of additional walking, we get to the shepherd hut on the mentioned mountain pasture.
From the hut, we continue towards the east at first only slightly upwards. After five minutes of walking from the hut path brings us to less steep gully, where we continue left on a poorly visible unmarked path (straight mountain pasture Seča).
Further, we are ascending on with grass vegetated gully, which is surrounded by dwarf pines. Still a little harder to follow footpath, on the top of this gully turns right on ample slopes of Struška. Path ahead in a moderate ascent crosses southwestern slopes of Struška, which are partly covered with dwarf pines (because the path is hard to follow we can quickly go astray into dwarf pines). A little below the summit "path" brings us on a ridge which we follow to the peak.
Orientation from the mountain pasture to the top is a little harder, and in fog very difficult.
