Access to starting point:
A) From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Kranj - east, and then we continue driving in the direction of Jezersko. When we get to Preddvor we leave the main road and we continue driving left towards the center of the mentioned settlement, from there we follow the signs for Mače. When we get to Mače, at the marked crossroad we continue right (left Bašelj, straight church of St. Miklavž (church isn't accessible with a car)) and on a narrow road we drive above the village, where there is a larger marked parking lot.
B) From highway Jesenice - Ljubljana we go to the exit Kranj - zahod and at the first crossroad, we continue left. Further, we drive through the underpass below the highway, and then we get to a roundabout, from where we continue driving in the direction of Golnik. The path ahead leads us through the settlement Mlaka pri Kranju, and at the end of the settlement, we continue right in the direction of the settlement Srakovlje. Next follows driving through Srakovlje, Spodnja Bela, Srednja Bela to Zgornja Bela, where we continue right towards Preddvor. In Preddvor we notice signs for Mače, which point us to the left past the primary school on a road which ascends to Mače. When we get to Mače, at the marked crossroad we continue right (left Bašelj, straight church of St. Miklavž (church isn't accessible with a car)) and on a narrow road we drive above the village, where there is a larger marked parking lot.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we go back to the road which we left. We follow this road a little less than half an hour to a crossing, where we go left following the signs Kališče. The path here crosses a stream and immediately after that steeply ascends. Already after few minutes, the path brings us on a cart track which we immediately leave. We go on a marked footpath which goes between the both cart tracks. The path ahead is moderately ascending in zig-zags. After some time, the path again brings us on a cart track. We follow it straight upwards, but only few minutes and then we go on a footpath. The footpath in few minutes of ascent brings us to benches on a panoramic hill. The path then leads in the forest and at first, it is gently ascending. This nice walk on a less steep path quickly ends. After that, the path crosses a cart track and starts ascending in zig-zags through the forest. We walk on the path ahead, which gives us a feeling, that we are quickly gaining altitude. Forest is then becoming a little thinner so that here and there we can look towards Gorenjska. The path then finally brings us on the mountain pasture Kališče, where from the left joins the path from neighbouring village (Bašelj, Laško). From here ahead we have only 15 more minutes of ascent again through the forest to the mountain hut Dom na Kališču.
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.
