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, but only to the village Kokra. In the mentioned village, we will only few meters before the road crosses a bridge over the river Kokra, notice a road which runs towards Suhadolnik. The turn-off of the road is located, when we are on the right side of the river (left bank), the road sign is approximately 7 km. We follow this road to a parking lot, which is located approximately 300 meters before a farm Suhadolnik.
Path description:
At the beginning of the parking lot, we notice hiking signposts, which point us on a road, on which in less than 5 minutes of walking, we get to a smaller crossroad at the farm Suhadolnik. Here we continue on the right road, and we follow it for approximately 5 minutes, or to the spot, where blazes lead on an ascending cart track. Further, for a short time, we are ascending on a cart track, and then blazes point us to the right on a footpath which is moderately ascending through the forest. Higher, we return on a cart track, and which only few meters ahead brings us to a forest road which we then follow to its end (to here we need approximately half an hour).
At the end of the road marked path splits into two parts. We continue on the left path (right a little easier "Old path"), which is further ascending on a gentle cart track. A little further blazes point us slightly right on a torrent deposits of sand, and the path on the other side continues through the forest, where it starts ascending steeper and steeper. Higher, we come to a smaller cave, and the path behind it becomes technically demanding. With the help of steel cables we ascend a level higher, and the path then continues on a steep slope, where occasionally we get a help from some iron spikes. Higher, the path turns to the right, ascends diagonally over a steep and mainly in wet for slipping dangerous slopes and then brings us to well-secured passage. With the help of wooden stairs or a ladder and a help from a steel cable, we ascend on the steep slope, which without mentioned safety catches would be very dangerous. Higher, we get some help from some more iron spikes, and the path after that flattens and crosses a short exposed slope, where we get help from a fence. Only a little further, we come to the next ladder, by which there aren't any steel cables, but the passage isn't that difficult. Next follows a short descent into a smaller gully and then we also cross it. On the other side of the gully, we steeply ascend (we get help from some stemples), after that the path slowly flattens and in few 10 strides of additional walking brings us to the spot, where joins a little easier "old path".
Next follows a short diagonal ascent and the path brings us to a larger plain, where used to be "stara koča" (old mountain hut). Over a high grass we walk on the other side of the plain, where we get to a marked crossing.
We continue straight (left Kočna over Grdi graben) on a moderately steep path, which further ascends through a lane of bushes. Higher, the path for some time entirely flattens, and then it brings us into dwarf pines, where it starts ascending steeper. This a little steeper path, from which increasingly beautiful views are opening up, we follow all the way to the mountain hut Cojzova koča na Kokrskem sedlu.
From a saddle we continue left in the direction of Grintovec, Kočna and Skuta. The path immediately above the saddle steeply ascends and a little higher brings us to a crossing, where the path towards bivouac Bivak pod Grintovcem and Skuta branches off to the right. We continue straight on "main" path, which flattens and turns a little to the left, where crosses slopes of indistinct valley named Jame. The path then in traverse ascends to the upper slopes of Grintovec - Streha (this part is in the winter time very dangerous for slipping), where we come to the next crossing. We continue left towards Kočna, right leads the path to the summit of Grintovec. After that, the path crosses steep grassy slopes towards the west and then starts descending. Later, the path turns to the right and is still slightly descending and crosses slightly exposed slopes all the way to a gentle grassy slopes (Srednji Dolci). Here we join the path which leads over Grdi graben, and few meters later we are again at the crossing.
We go left towards bivouac and Kokrska Kočna, and right leads the path towards a notch Dolška škrbina and then ahead towards Jezerska Kočna or Grintovec. After that, the path crosses scree to the left and it ascends over a short gully.
Little above the gully unmarked path towards Bivak v Kočni branches off to the left which we can already see and is from the marked path distant only few minutes of walking. We continue on a marked path right upwards and we soon start ascending on the scree. In the upper part of the scree, the path turns to the left and it brings us in a little more demanding rocky part of the path. Here we again turn slightly to the right and with an easier climbing we are ascending on a slope. The path on this part otherwise isn't secured, but in the rock there is enough holds, so that ascent doesn't cause bigger problems. In the last part towards the summit path becomes even a little steeper and there are also some steel cables for help.
