Access to starting point:
First, we drive to Luče, and then we continue driving into a valley of Podvolovjek (direction Kamnik and Kranjski Rak). At the road sign between 11 and 11.5 km, we will get to a smaller crossroad, where a road towards the farm Planinšek and mountain pastures Podvežak, Ravne and Vodole branches off to the right (turn-off is marked). We go on this at first still asphalt road which at the crossroads we follow in the direction of the mountain pasture Podvežak. On relatively long and in the upper part also worse macadam road we will get to the parking lot below the mountain pasture Podvežak (by the starting point are a gate and numerous signposts).
From Kamnik we drive towards the mountain pass Črnivec, but only to a crossroad, where the road towards Kranjski Rak branches off sharply to the left (turn-off is marked and is located only 500 meters before the mentioned mountain pass). At the crossroad at Kranjski Rak we continue straight on the main road which starts descending into a valley of Podvolovjek. In the mentioned valley we will only 100 meters after bar Gams come to a crossroad, where the road towards the farm Planinšek and mountain pastures Podvežak, Ravne and Vodole branches off to the left (turn-off is marked). Further, follow the upper description.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we go on a footpath (or road) in the direction of the mountain pasture Podvežak. Both road and footpath which during the ascent crosses a forest road, in 15 minutes of a moderate ascent bring us to shepherd cottage on the mountain pasture Podvežak, from which a beautiful view opens up towards Rogatec and Lepenatka.
From the mountain pasture, we continue on a marked, but at first poorly visible path, which soon goes into the forest. The path through the forest a little steeper ascends, and then passes into a smaller unvegetated valley, above which it entirely flattens. Next follows few minutes of crossing the slopes below the side ridge of Deska, and then the path brings us on a less noticeable crossing, where a little narrower path branches off to the left, which leads towards Deska and lake Vodotočno jezero.
We continue on the mentioned path which starts ascending diagonally towards the saddle between Deska and Tolsti vrh. From the point, when we left the wider marked path, we are at first ascending through a lane of dwarf pines, after that over more and more panoramic grassy slopes. Next follows a little steeper diagonal ascent over smaller scree and the path brings us on the already mentioned small saddle.
Here we continue right (left Deska, straight lake Vodotočno jezero) on a well visible unmarked footpath which ascends diagonally a little towards the right. Right before we reach the ridge, the passage gets interrupted by lane of dwarf pines. Here the path turns right (away from the peak), and then quickly a passage opens on the other side of the ridge, where we continue sharply left. Follows only few minutes of a little steeper ascent and a worse footpath brings us on Tolsti vrh.
