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.
We continue slightly left in the direction of Mala Poljana (signpost is a little further from the crossing) on the path which after few additional strides, brings us into with forest vegetated valley. A poorly visible footpath, ahead is ascending through the mentioned valley, which is becoming narrower and gradually changes into ditch. Further, we are ascending on a barely visible footpath which is ascending between two steep slopes. The path which is mainly covered with leaves and is on some parts exposed to falling stones, higher brings us on at first quite rough cart track, on which we in few minutes step out of the forest on the bottom part of Mala Poljana. Cart track on which we continue an ascent, after few minutes of additional walking brings us to the hunting cottage on Mala Poljana.
From Mala Poljana, where join paths from Velika Poljana and mountain hut Dom pod Storžičem, we continue left in the direction of Tolsti vrh, on the path which ascends diagonally on the western edge of the mountain pasture. Higher, the path goes into the forest, where with the exception of some smaller clearings continues until we get on a ridge, where joins the path from Gozd.
We continue right on ascending path, which through thin, mostly spruce forest brings us on the upper unvegetated slope of Tolsti vrh. This increasingly panoramic path, which is relatively steeply ascending on the south ridge, we follow all the way to the top of this panoramic of the mountain.
