Path description:
From the parking lot, we go on a steep cart track in the direction of Lovrenc. The steepness soon decreases and the path brings us to a crossing, where the path to the church of St. Lovrenc branches off to the right. We continue on the bottom cart track which again steeply ascends and after 15 minutes of walking from car brings us to the mountain hut Dom na Lovrencu. At the mountain hut, we continue on a path towards Storžič. Already after few steps, the path brings us out of the forest on meadows below the church. Church of St. Lovrenc we reach in few minutes of walking on a meadow. At the church, we go slightly right into the forest, where the cart track in a gentle descent brings us on a small indistinct saddle, where joins the path from a little higher starting point. Ahead we continue in the direction of Storžič still on a cart track which is slightly ascending. Cart track after few minutes changes into a footpath which starts ascending steeply through the forest. After approximately half an hour of walking from the spot when the cart track ends we step out of the forest. Nice views open up on the southern slopes of Storžič. The steepness of the and the path doesn't decrease for additional 30 minutes to a bench at the crossing. Ahead we go left towards Javornik and Poljana (right Kališče). The path ahead crosses the southern slopes of Storžič towards the west with some shorter descents and ascents. After 20 minutes of crossing we come to a crossing in southwest gully of Storžič. On the left we see Planina Javornik (5 minutes), and we go right towards Storžič (po žebu - groove). The path starts ascending by at first narrower gully, which soon widens. The steepness of the path starts increasing, and the path is ascending on steep grassy slopes southwestern gully of Storžič. In the winter time is this part of the path exposed to avalanches. After an hour and fifteen minutes of ascent, the path brings us on a ridge, where a nice view opens up on the eastern side. Here we continue left on the upper slope of Storžič, peak of which we reach in 15 minutes of panoramic walking.
