Access to starting point:
A) From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Brnik, when we reach the road Mengeš - Kranj, we continue left towards Kranj. On the main road towards Kranj we drive to first roundabout, from where we continue on first exit right in the direction of Šenčur. Through Šenčur we continue on the main road, after we reach the road Kranj - Zgornje Jezersko, we continue right 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 settlement Bašelj. A little after the settlement Bašelj the road descends to a stream Milka and over a bridge also crosses it. Here at first road in the village Babni Vrt branches off to the right, and good 100 meters ahead also in the village Povlje. We continue on an ascending road towards Povlje, and we park on a smaller parking lot above the village. At the starting point, there is a smaller crossroad, more mountain signposts and larger information board of learning path Trstenik "Pot pod Storžičem".
B) From highway Jesenice - Ljubljana we go to the exit Kranj west, and then we continue driving towards Golnik. When we get to Tenetiše we leave the main road towards Golnik and we continue driving right in the direction of Trstenik. Approximately 1km after the settlement Trstenik we get to a smaller crossroad, where we continue left in the direction of village Povlje. We continue on an ascending road towards Povlje, and we park on a smaller parking lot above the village. At the starting point, there is a smaller crossroad, more mountain signposts and larger information board of learning path Trstenik "Pot pod Storžičem".
Path description:
From the parking lot, we continue on the left road, and from there we go immediately slightly right on a footpath in the direction of Storžič, Kališče, mountain pasture Javornik and the path Dolenčeva pot on Velika Poljana. The path ahead is at first gently, and then moderately ascending through the forest, and it soon brings us to a cart track. We continue the ascent on occasionally steeper cart track, where because of numerous crossings we carefully follow the blazes, and few times we also leave the cart track, because blazes occasionally lead also on a footpath. For some time still we walk on a footpath and the cart track alternately, on a slope which was heavily damaged by storm, that is why there are many larger clearings by the path.
Higher, at marked crossing we continue in the direction of Storžič, Kališče and mountain pasture Javornik (on a cart track continues the path on Velika Poljana). From the crossing ahead, the path becomes pretty steep, because old path became impassable due to numerous fallen trees, and then the path turns right and for some time flattens. Next follows few minutes of crossing towards the right, and then we step out of the forest and we get to southwestern groove of Storžič, by which we are ascending to the nearby marked crossing.
From the crossing, we continue left (straight path on Storžič, which bypasses cottage Krničarjeva koča and is about a minute shorter) and we diagonally ascend on a panoramic slope to the cottage Krničarjeva koča on the mountain pasture Planina Javornik.
We continue on the right side of the cottage and we continue in the direction of Storžič. A short time we cross the slopes towards the right, and then we return to southwestern groove, where we return on the path which we left below cottage, and also the path from Bašelj or Laško joins.
We again continue in the direction of Storžič and we start ascending on the mentioned groove. Higher from the left joins the path which leads below the slopes of Psica.
From the mentioned crossing, we continue right (left Velika Poljana, mountain hut Dom pod Storžičem...) and we are still ascending on quite steep southwestern groove of Storžič. On the mentioned groove, from which increasingly beautiful views opening up towards Gorenjska, we are ascending for a good hour, and then the path turns a little to the right and brings us on the southwestern ridge of Storžič, where from the right side joins an unmarked path which leads on the mentioned ridge.
We continue on the ridge and marked path then turns slightly to the right and soon join also other paths from Dom pod Storžičem and Kališče. From here to the top, which we already see in front of us, then only a short ascent follows by wonderful views.
