Access to the starting point:
a) From the motorway Ljubljana - Jesenice, take the exit Kranj - East, then continue driving in the direction of 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 that leads between houses and the Belica stream. Park in the parking lot next to the Bašelj Tourist Board.
Path description:
From the starting point at the log cabin of the Bašelj Tourist Association, continue along the forest road closed to public traffic, which leads us along the Belica stream. At first we walk along the football and basketball field, then we arrive at the first crossroads of the gams' trail, where the trail branches off to the left towards the Church of St. Lawrence, the Lodge under St. Lawrence, and it is also possible to continue towards Storžič, Krničarjeva koča na planini Javornik, Mali and Velika Poljana. . .
From the above mentioned crossroads, the ascent continues along the macadam road, which climbs moderately through the forest or partly through the bushes. After a few minutes, you reach the forest road turnoff, where the footpath to Kališe continues to the right across the stream, and slightly to the left the gamsova trail continues, leading to Gradišče and on to St. Lovrec, and the path to Kališe along the forest road, Kališe past the Košuta Hospital and Kališe along the ridge of Kisovec. The path continues along the wide cart track, climbing towards the nearby water reservoir. Before the water reservoir, leave the wide cart track and continue again slightly left, on the path where the gams' trail continues. Continue for a few minutes on the steeper cart track, and when this ends, continue right on a less distinct but relatively well beaten path that climbs through the forest. Higher up, the track is partly lost in a few places, and we follow the otherwise sparse yellow and white markings that mark the gams' path. We climb through the forest for a few minutes, then at one bend we reach another forest road, which we follow to the right (to the left Laško). We walk along the macadam road for a few 10 metres and we are at the next crossroads, where the path to St. Lovrenec branches off to the left, and a few steps further on, to the right, to the top of Gradišče. Continue along the road for another 10 minutes, then you will reach a small parking area and a few steps further on to the turning point at the end of the road.
From the end of the road, turn left onto cart track in the direction of Kališe and Storžiča. Cart track then climbs moderately along the bed of the Belica stream and after about 10 minutes splits into two parts. Continue along the left-hand cart track, which ends after a few metres. At this part, leave the vicinity of the riverbed and continue slightly to the left on a path that climbs steeply through the forest. The steepness soon gives way and the path leads to the partisan hospital Košuta. After the hospital, cross two successive torrents, and then the path becomes steeper again. The path continues through the forest, crossing one steeper slope where a little more caution is needed in the wet. Above the steep part we reach the side ridge Kališe, where the unmarked path from Bašlje joins us from the right.
Continue left here and continue the ascent on the steep path, which continues through gradually thinning forest. After a bench and a few views of the nearby Storžič, the path turns right and returns to the dense forest. A less steep path follows, which quickly leads to the first hut on Lower Kališe. After the hut, the forest ends, and then, on a pleasant grassy surface, the central part of mountain pasture is reached in a few minutes, where the usual route from Maca is also joined.
From Spodnje Kališe continue slightly left in the direction of Dom na Kališe, from where a few minutes walk through the forest follows, and then we reach a nice lookout point, from which a nice view opens up towards the nearby Dom na Kališe, Malý Grintovec, the ridge of Lanež, Krvavec, etc. From the lookout point, it's just a short climb and we're already 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 direction, and we continue to the right in the direction of Bašelj peak, Malá Grintovec and Srednji vrh. 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 of Mačensko sedlo.
Then cross Bašeljski vrh, following a path that 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 2:40, Kališe - Mačensko sedlo 45 minutes, Mačensko sedlo - Mali Grintovec 30 minutes.
