Path description:
From Žiri we continue by the main road towards Idrija and Logatec, and we follow it to the chapel by the crossroad. Here we continue right on a side road, by which after few meters on a power line pole we notice signs for Breznica and Mrzli vrh, which point us to the left on a cart track which ascends steeply among houses. Higher, we for some time step on the road, from which a nice view opens up on Žiri, and then we continue on a cart track. Cart track quickly brings us to a smaller hamlet, after which we continue right on a marked footpath, on which we ascend on a smaller saddle. From the small saddle, by which there are religious symbol and a bench we continue left and after few steps, we get to a macadam road which we only cross. The path ahead passes into the forest, through which for a short time steeply ascends, and then it flattens and it brings us on panoramic grassy slopes. Next follows few minutes of ascent on a cart track and the path brings us in Breznica pri Žireh, where we also step on an asphalt road. Through the village we follow the blazes, and the road past the village church of St. Kancijan, in a gentle descent brings us to a crossroad, from which we continue right in the direction of Mrzli Vrh. Here the road for some time slightly ascends, and then it starts descending to the next crossroad, where we again continue right (left Korita). From the crossroad ahead, the road loses an asphalt covering, and we follow the macadam road through a larger meadow.
When the road returns in the forest, signs for Mrzli Vrh point us to the left on a marked footpath, which is further moderately ascending through the forest. Further, we are for some time ascending through the forest and then the path brings us on a grassy ridge, from which a nice view opens up on Blegoš and surrounding peaks. Here we short time walk on the road, and then signs for Mrzli Vrh point us slightly to the right on an ascending footpath, which higher flattens and gradually passes on the right side of the ridge. Next follows a short crossing and a panoramic path brings us to a sign which marks Mrzli vrh (the sign is situated little below the summit).
We continue on a marked path which starts gently descending towards the nearby road. When we step on the road, we continue sharply right in the direction of Ledinica (slightly left Sivka and mountain hut Mrzlk) and on the road we descend to the next marked crossing, which is situated on a smaller saddle.
Here, the asphalt road descends right downwards, and we continue slightly left to few steps distant hiking signposts, where the path once again splits. Slightly left continues a marked path towards Ledinica, and we continue on an unmarked path which continues on an indistinct ridge. The path ahead leads us past the cottage Na Krog, and behind it we quickly ascend to the summit of Krog.
