Path description:
At the end of the road, we go on the left cart track in the direction of Kališče and Storžič. Cart track is moderately ascending and after ten minutes of walking, it brings us to a crossing. We continue on the left cart track which after few meters vanishes. The path here leaves smaller valley by which was ascending and steeply ascends to the left direction. After this shorter steep ascent steepness decreases and the path brings us to partisan hospital Košuta. Behind the hospital path crosses two successive torrents and then again steeply ascends. The path which all the time runs through the forest brings us on a side ridge of Kališče, where joins the unmarked path from Bašelj. Forest then becomes thinner and occasionally some nice view opens up towards Storžič. After that, the path turns a little right again in the forest. Suddenly in front of us, we notice cottage, which is situated on the mountain pasture below Kališče. Only few meters ahead joins the path from the village Mače. Further, the path is ascending for approximately 15 more minutes through the forest. After that, the path makes a sharp left turn and in front of us, we notice a mountain hut Dom na Kališču to which we only have few steps.
From the mountain hut, we continue on a wide ridge path towards Storžič. Already after few minutes, the path on Bašeljski vrh branches off to the right, and we continue straight. A wide path then with nice views quickly brings us on a saddle Bašeljsko sedlo, where joins the path from Jezersko. On the saddle signpost for Storžič points us on the path which goes towards the west (straight). 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.
