Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Ljubelj and follow the road ahead to the border crossing. Only few meters before the border crossing we will on the right side notice a parking lot, where we park.
Path description:
At the end of the parking lot, we notice signposts for mountain hut Koča na Ljubelju, which on some stairs take us to an old Ljubelj road. This road which is moderately ascending and is in the winter time converted into a sledding track, we follow all the way to the mountain hut Koča na Ljubelju. With in parts nice views on Košutica, Veliki vrh and Begunjščica we reach the mountain hut after a little less than an hour of walking.
From the mountain hut, we continue on the road on the Austrian side, where after five minutes of walking signposts point us to the right into the forest. The path through the forest is slightly ascending and after approximately 30 minutes of walking from the end of the road brings us on the border ridge. The path on the ridge isn't steep but the slopes on which we walk are steep, therefore especially in wet a great caution is needed. In some parts we also get help from fixed safety gear and a ladder. Forest then becomes thinner and the path brings us on pastures of Grunt. Grunt is an indistinct peak on the path on which we walk.
Here from the right joins the path from the mountain pasture Korošica, and we continue straight on the ridge and by the border fence. The path then brings us to a crossing, where the path on a saddle Dovjakovo sedlo branches off to the left. From there further on a small footpath (deer paths) in a gentle ascent below the northern wall of Ljubeljska Baba. We soon bypass a huge boulder, and from there follows even a little steeper ascent to the already mentioned saddle Dovjakovo sedlo, which is crosswise surrounded by a wooden fence (national border). We turn left towards the foot of the upper slope. The footpath is winding through larch forest to dense lanes of dwarf pines. First, we ascend over a short rugged crumbly cliff, after that among dense lanes of dwarf pines to first grassy top. Few ten meters to the north in the middle of dwarf pines there is the other grassy top with a rock, on which there is writen survey point 1810 meters. Here is the highest point of Lokovnikov Grintovec, but from the first grassy top, which is situated on the same altitude as the second, much better view opens up.
On the way: Koča na Ljubelju mountain hut (1370m), Dovjakovo sedlo (1728m)
