Access to the starting point:
a) From the motorway Ljubljana - Jesenice, take the exit Kranj - East, then continue driving towards Jezersko. When you reach Preddvor, leave the main road and turn left towards the centre of the town, and from there follow the signs for Bašelj. When you reach Bašelj, at the point where the main road makes a long left turn, leave the main road and continue straight ahead in the direction of the Gamsova cesta (Gamsova cesta). Continue along the narrow asphalt road that leads between the houses and the Belica stream. Park in the parking lot next to the Bašelj Tourist Board.
b) From the motorway Jesenice - Ljubljana, take the exit Kranj - West and turn left at the first junction. Continue through the underpass under the motorway and then to the roundabout, from where you continue in the direction of Golnik. The road continues through Mlaka pri Kranju, and at the end of the village we turn right in the direction of Srakovlje. We then drive through Srakovlje, Spodnja Bela, Srednja Bela, Zgornja Bela (in Zgornja Bela we join the road from Preddvor) to Bašlja, where the main road makes a long left turn, we leave it and continue straight on in the direction of Gamsova cesta. Continue along the narrow asphalt road which leads between houses and the Belica stream. Park in the parking lot next to the Bašelj Tourist Board.
Path description:
From the parking lot, continue in the direction of the Belica spring, Kališe and Storžič (Gamsov raj on the left) along the macadam road closed to public traffic, passing the Belica Sports and Tourist Park hut on the right. The road, from which we initially have a nice view of Storžič, leads us past the football and basketball pitches and leads us in about 10 minutes to a marked crossroads at the turning point of the road.
From the turning point, continue right in the direction of Kališe along the marked path (left Kališe along the forest road, and also Gradišče) and Kališe past the Košuta Hospital), which begins to climb along the left tributary of the Belice. The way ahead leads through the forest, initially along the left side of the ravine, then crosses it and passes to the right side, where after a short climb you reach a worse forest road or cart track. Follow Cart track for a few minutes, then the signs direct you right into the forest through which you climb quite steeply. Cross an overgrown clearing or an old coppice, then rejoin the wide cart track. This time walk only a few steps on cart track, as at the first bend you continue straight on a gradually less steep path. A little further on, cross another cart track and, above it, approach the wide cart track. At the point where we approach the cart track there is a mountain direction signpost marking the way down. Continue straight ahead here and after a minute or two of further walking join the more beaten track from Mač.
From the crossroads continue left in the direction Kališe (straight Mače on the road, right Mače on the footpath) and continue through the short lane of the compacted forest. The dense spruce forest ends quickly and we enter a less good forest road leading out of the valley of the Belica stream. We climb along the road, which soon makes a left turn, for a few minutes, and then on the right we see the continuation of the mountain path (the branch is well marked). The path continues on to a steeper slope and climbs quite steeply in a number of bends. Higher up, the forest thins out and we get a nice view to the south. A wooden bench in a part of the sparse forest gives us a pleasant rest, and a little further on we are "surprised" by a working clock on a tree. Continue for a little longer, crossing to the right to reach the forested southern ridge Kališe. At the ridge, the trail turns sharp left, then climbs in a few switchbacks to Lower Kališe, from where we get a nice view of Storžič. When the path returns to the forest above Spodnje Kališem, the path from Laško (also the path from Bašlja past the Košuta hospital) joins us from the left. After a few minutes of walking through the forest, we reach a beautiful lookout point, from where a beautiful view opens up towards the nearby Dom na Kališču, Maly Grintovec, the ridge of Lanež, Krvavec. . . From the lookout point, it's just a short climb and we're at Dom na Kališe.
From Dom na Kališču we continue along the wide ridge path towards Storžič. After a few minutes of pleasant scenic walking we arrive at a marked crossroads where a slightly less well-trodden path from Bašlja (the path past the church of St. Lovrenec) joins us from the left, the path to Storžič continues in a straight line, and we continue to the right in the direction of Bašeljski vrh, Malá Grintovec and Srednji vrh (Middle Peak). From the crossroads onwards we start climbing through dwarf pines, and the path quickly leads us to the next crossroads, where we continue along the lower right path (left Bašeljski vrh) in the direction Mačensko sedlo.
Then cross Bašeljski vrh, following the path which continues with some short ascents and descents. When the crossing ends, we arrive at Mačensko sedlo, where we join the marked trail with Bašeljski vrh on the left and the unmarked trail through the valley of the Suhe on the right.
Continue straight on in the direction of Maly Grintovec, following the path which begins to climb relatively steeply up the western slope of the mountain. After about half an hour's walk from Mačenski sedlo, we arrive at a marked crossroads where the path from Dolga njiva joins from the right. Continue to the left and after a further walk of 10 steps you will reach the top of Maly Grintovec.
Bašelj - Kališe 2:30, Kališe - Mačensko sedlo 45 minutes, Mačensko sedlo - Mali Grintovec 30 minutes.
