Access to starting point:
We drive to Kamnik and follow the road ahead towards the valley of Kamniška Bistrica. From the hut in Kamniška Bistrica we continue driving on the forest road which higher brings us to a crossroad, where we continue straight (right Jermanca, starting point for saddle Kamniško sedlo). The road then past the boulder Žagana peč brings us to the parking lot at the bottom cargo cableway station to a saddle Kokrsko sedlo.
Driving from the mountain hut in Kamniška Bistrica to the parking lot V Koncu is now forbidden (traffic sign), this extends the path for a little less than an hour.
Path description:
From the parking lot at the cargo cableway we go on at first gentle footpath in the direction of saddle Kokrsko sedlo. The path at first crosses a lane of bushes, and then passes into a dense forest, where it starts ascending steeper. Higher forest becomes a little thinner, so that a view opens up a little on surrounding peaks. The path which is still steeply ascending, higher brings us to two successive steel cables (in dry entirely undemanding), behind which we come to a pleasant resting place with a bench.
The path ahead returns into a dense forest and then it starts turning towards the right, where for a short time also steepness of the path decreases. The path a little further passes out of the forest, crosses an indistinct ditch and then it brings us on avalanche slopes below the saddle Kokrsko sedlo. Here the path turns a little to the left and starts ascending steeply on mostly rocky slope. Considerably strenuous path (because of the gravel), that runs below the mountain walls of Kalška gora on the left and less known Mali vrh on the right, with increasingly beautiful views, finally brings us to the mountain hut Cojzova koča na Kokrskem sedlu.
From the saddle, we continue right in the direction of Grintovec and Kočna (left Kalški greben, straight downwards Kokra) on the path which for a short time steeply ascends. The steepness soon decreases and the path after few minutes of additional walking brings us to a marked crossing, where we continue straight in the direction of Grintovec (slightly right Skuta). Next follows few minutes of crossing the slopes, on the path which turning more and more towards the left. After gentle descent, the path brings us in more plain terrain (bottom part of Jame), and then starts ascending diagonally towards Streha (roof slope) of Grintovec. On the top of a diagonal ascent we come to a marked 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.
