Access to starting point:
We leave Gorenjska highway at exit Kranj east, and then we follow the signs for Šenčur. In the center of Šenčur, where the main road turns slightly to the left, we turn slightly right on the road Velesovska cesta. Šenčur soon ends, and after approximately 2 km from the end of the settlement, we turn left in the direction of Velesovo. Through Velesovo we continue on the main road, and there we drive to the fire station Velesovo and a store, where the described path begins.
Path description:
From the fire station we walk to the main road Visoko - Cerklje na Gorenjskem and we carefully cross it. We continue on a side road which leads us towards the north to northeast, and there we continue to the last farm, where the asphalt ends. We continue also past the hayrack, and by the edge of the forest the road at first turns a little to the left and then right into the forest, where first blazes show up. A little further, the road changes into a cart track, where at some crossings we follow the blazes, and when we reach the ridge of Štorski hrib where we join the path from Adergas, we continue left and we quickly get to a marked crossing at the chapel.
We continue left in the direction of the path via Šterna (right path - past benches) on the path which continues on for some time still a gentle cart track. Cart track soon changes into wide and a little steeper footpath, and which higher joins other wider cart track. We continue moderate ascent through the forest and from the left joins the marked path from the village Olševek. Only a little above the mentioned crossing we come to "šterna", where the path turns sharply to the right and after a further shorter ascent brings us on a smaller saddle, where there is the next crossing, and next to it signposts for Olševek, Adergas and Možjanca.
We continue on the right path, by which there isn't any signpost, but by the path there are trail blazes. The path ahead moderately ascends on an indistinct ridge, from which we almost unnoticeably pass on a quite gentle slope. A little further, the path splits and we choose the right path (path straight leads past the agrotourism and is slightly longer), on which in few minutes of additional walking, we ascend to the church of St. Štefan on the top of Štefanja gora.
