Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Kranj - vzhod and follow the road ahead in the direction of Jezersko. Only few kilometers after the turn-off for Preddvor we will on the right side of the road notice transformer and by it parking lot, where we park. Here are also signposts for mountain hut Dom Čemšenik.
Path description:
From the parking lot at first we carefully cross the road, and then we go on a footpath in the direction of the mountain hut Dom Čemšenik. A wide path lightly ascends to the homestead Polajnar, where we step on the road which we follow to the right.
The road just after the house steeply ascends, which a little higher loses an asphalt covering. Further, the road flattens and turns a little towards the left, where it gets very close to the stream Čemšeniški potok. Even a little further, we cross the mentioned stream and right after it we come at the marked crossroad, where we continue on the left road in the direction of mountian hut Dom Čemšenik. The road then again starts ascending steeper and in less than 30 minutes of additional walking brings us to the mountain hut Dom Čemšenik.
From the mountain hut Dom Čemšenik we continue behind the hut on a well visible but unmarked path, which goes into the forest and starts at first gently and then steeper and steeper ascending. The path soon brings us to modest vantage point, where it turns slightly to the right and then it is ascending diagonally. Higher, the path brings us on the main ridge (view on Gorenjska plain), where it ascends even steeper and after few minutes of additional walking brings us to more flat part, where there stands the wooden cottage (holiday cottage).
Shortly before the hut path turns to the right and after few additional strides, it brings us to the inscription box on Baba.
From the inscription box, we continue on an easy to follow footpath which continues on occasionally panoramic ridge, from which at first a nice view opens up towards Cjanovca, Kočna, Grintovec, Kalški greben and other surrounding hills. The path ahead at first continues on the left side of the ridge and after indistinct small saddle passes on the right (east) slopes of Potoška gora. Next follows few minutes of a diagonal ascent, and then we join the marked path which leads from Dom Čemšenik.
We continue upwards and relatively quickly we get to the saddle between Potoška gora on the left and secondary peak of Javorov vrh on the right.
On the saddle is marked crossing, where we continue right (left Potoška gora, slightly left mountain hut Planinska koča Iskra na Jakobu (on one of the mentioned paths we can descend) in the direction of Javorjev vrh. The path continues on a forested ridge, only to indistinct secondary peak it avoids to the right. A gentle ascent follows, from where again a view opens up a little and then the path returns into the forest and splits.
Here we continue left in the direction of Srednji vrh, Kališče and Storžič (straight Javorov vrh 15 minutes) on the path which after few additional strides, brings us to a pleasant well. Next follows half an hour crossing of the slopes below Javorov vrh, which ends on the saddle between the mentioned peak and Cjanovca.
Here at the marked crossing we continue left in the direction of Hudičev boršt (straight Srednji vrh and Cjanovca, sharply right Javorov vrh) on the path which then crosses slopes towards the left, and meanwhile few times slightly ascends and descends again. After approximately 15 minutes of walking from the last crossing we step out of the forest on grassy slopes of Zaplata, through which we continue crossing. Technically undemanding path leads us on occasionally even steeper slopes, where it is mainly in wet on some spots dangerous for slipping. In the last part before we step into the forest there is also a steel cable for help, and the path after it entirely flattens. When we step into the forest, we only have a short walk to the cottage.
From the cottage, we continue towards the west, where we quickly get to the source in Hudičev boršt, right after it at the marked crossing, where we continue straight (left downwards path Mačenska pot in Mače). Next follows a shorter crossing of a grassy slope, and then the path passes into the forest and it brings us to a crossing, where the path towards Dolga njiva, Cjanovca, Srednji vrh and Mali Grintovec branches off to the right, and we continue straight. The path ahead for a short time crosses slopes towards the left, and after the crossing of gully brings us to a crossing, where we continue right towards Kališče (bottom path leads in Mače).
The path ahead still crosses slopes towards the left. During the crossing we will get to smaller scree, from which first a view opens up towards the valley. Next follows a short crossing and the path brings us into a valley of Suha, where from the left also joins an unmarked path from Mače.
We continue in the direction of Kališče and we continue the ascent on a gradually more and more steep path. The path ahead is for some time ascending through a dense forest and then it brings us by the foot of rocky cliffs and only a little higher on the ridge, where just few meters from the path, we notice a smaller cottage. Here the path turns right and steeply ascends over a shorter rocky jump. The path here flattens and only few meters ahead joins the normal path which leads on Kališče.
We continue in the direction of Kališče and we continue the ascent on a moderately steep path, on which in 5 minutes of additional walking, we get to the mountain hut Dom na Kališču.
Behind the mountain hut Dom na Kališču we notice a mountain signpost with numerous options to continue. We continue on a gently sloping and panoramic ridge path in the direction of Storžič, Bašeljski vrh..., which continues towards the north. After few minutes of easy walking with nice views, which reaches all the way to Julian Alps, we get to a crossing, where the path branches off to the left towards the church of St. Lovrenc above Bašelj, mountain pasture Javornik and Kriška gora, to the right path on Bašeljski vrh and Mali Grintovec branches off, and we continue straight in the direction of Storžič. Next follows few minutes of crossing of mostly western slopes of Bašeljski vrh, and then we get to a grassy saddle Bašeljski preval, where from the right side joins the path from Jezersko (in descriptions starting point Jekarica).
We again continue straight in the direction of Storžič, this time on the path which starts ascending steeply through a lane of dwarf pines. After approximately 30 minutes of ascent from the saddle we step on the ridge of Storžič, which we soon leave because the path passes on the southern slopes of the mountain. Over quite steep south slopes we are ascending on a steep path, which is on many spots dangerous for slipping, especially in wet. Higher, the path flattens a little and returns on the ridge, on and by which it then continues. The increasingly panoramic path little below the summit from the left join also paths from St. Lovrenc, mountain pasture Javornik and the path over Psica and through Žrelo. Here we continue slightly right and in few steps we reach one of the most visited two-thousanders in Slovenia.
