Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Kranj west and follow the road ahead in the direction of Golnik. Soon after the village Tenetiše, we will notice signs for village Goriče, which point us to the right on a local road. Only a little further, we come to the next crossroad, where we continue right in the direction of village Trstenik and Preddvor. And this road as well we don't follow long, because already after few meters, we will notice the sign with the caption Zalog, which points us left on an ascending road which we then follow to the mentioned village. In the middle of the village, a little before the church, we will notice a road which from the main road turns to the right. We go on this road, by which we soon notice blazes. We follow this road ahead for approximately 1km, and then we park on one of the parking lots by the road.
Path description:
From the starting point, we continue on the road by which we've parked, and it is getting worse and higher brings us to NOB monument, where we leave it and we continue the ascent right on an ascending cart track. At the spot, where the cart track on which we continue an ascent turns to the left, we will on the right side notice a footpath, which starts ascending steeper through the forest (beginning isn't marked).
The path by which we notice rare blazes, then past a smaller chapel brings us to a poorly marked crossing, by which on a panoramic hill we notice pleasant bench.
From the viewpoint, we continue on the path which ascends slightly right (left Mala Poljana) and already after few steps goes into the forest, where starts ascending steeply. The path soon passes on a wide vegetated ridge, where it then continues for quite some time.
A relatively steep path, which higher turning a little towards the right, eventually brings us to a wide cart track, where we join the path from Povlje.
We continue straight on an ascending cart track which past »snack bar« brings us to the spot, where from the cart track a marked footpath branches off to the left. We can continue the ascent on the mentioned footpath, which ascends on grassy slopes, or on a cart track which is ascending by the edge of the forest. Both paths higher join and without problems bring us to the cottage on Velika Poljana.
From the cottage, we continue on a gently sloping path, which ascends through mountain pasture and in 5 minutes brings us on a small saddle between Grebenc and Psica, where there is also marked crossing. We continue right in the forest on the path in the direction of Storžič over Psica (left Mala Poljana). The path starts quite steeply ascending and then turns slightly to the right and the steepness decreases a little. Such a path soon brings us out of the forest and to a crossing. We go left on the path over Psica, and right leads an easier path on Storžič.
From the crossroad path at first runs on a grassy terrain by dwarf pines and rare trees, after that goes again in the forest and starts ascending steeply. On some spots, the path is also slightly exposed. Next follows an ascent on a grassy slope by rare dwarf pines to the panoramic ridge. For some time we are ascending on increasingly exposed ridge and then we come on an indistinct peak Psica. From the top, we slightly descend and then we continue on exposed ridge. Further, the path on the ridge quite a few times ascends and descends and we also get help from some safety catches. Later from the left joins the path through Žrelo, and we still continue on the path by the ridge. In the last part of the path, we few times steeply ascend, there are also some safety catches for help. A little below the summit from the right joins also the easiest path on Storžič, which leads over mountain pasture Javornik. Next, only a shorter ascent on the upper slope of Storžič follows, and we reach the peak in few minutes.
