Access to the starting point:
From the Ljubljana - Jesenice motorway, take the Podnart (Ljubelj) exit, then continue on the expressway towards Ljubelj and Tržič. When the expressway ends, you will see a petrol station on the right hand side, before which turn right down towards Tržič. Continue through Tržič, and we follow the narrower road towards Dovžana Gorge and on to the village of Dolina, where we park in the gravel parking lot in front of the bridge over the Tržiška River Bistrica.
Path description:
From the parking lot, cross the bridge first, then walk along the main road to the nearby chapel, where you continue left along the garden and the older dwelling house onto the forest road. Continue up the increasingly narrow and deteriorating macadam road, which leads moderately uphill along the Kališnik stream. The road soon turns into cart track, and starts to climb steeply. Higher up, we reach a water reservoir, above which the ever-narrowing cart track turns left and ends after a few metres, and we continue straight across a larger grassy hayfield, up which we climb to a slightly larger spruce tree, where signs direct us slightly right on to a steeper footpath. Continue on the steep path, which crosses a short lane of forest, and then leads to moderately steep grassy slopes, which, with fine views of Storžič and Stegovnik, ascend to the saddle of Kal, where you also step onto the forest road. From the saddle, which offers a fine view of Begunjščica, continue to the right and in a few steps you will reach the Shelter on Kal.
From the shelter, continue along the macadam road, where you will quickly arrive at a marked crossroads, where the "direct" route to Dom na Kofcah branches off to the left, and we continue straight ahead and continue along the macadam road. Higher up (just past the quarry) we leave the road, as the markings direct us slightly left onto a footpath, which we first climb steeply, then cross-climb to the right. A little further on you reach another forest road, which you only cross as the signs for Dom na Kofcah - past the chapel, direct you to a wide cart track. After a few metres of ascent, continue along the right-hand cart track, which quickly leads to the Mrzlje studenec. After the wells, the path goes through the woods and then leads to a clearing, at the edge of which stands a larger chapel.
From the chapel, continue left into the forest, through which you will climb to a nearby pasture fence. Once you cross the pasture fence, the path is partly lost, but if you continue along the slope slightly to the left, you will reach the Dom na Kofcah without much difficulty.
From the mountain lodge, continue in the direction of Veliki vrh and Kladiv along the initially slightly less visible path, which begins to climb over a meadow. After a 15-minute walk from the Home on Kofcah, you will reach a beautiful viewpoint at the cross. The path then descends gently and leads us in a few minutes to the steeper slopes of Košuta. The path then climbs over lane of dwarf pines, where it leads to a crossroads. Continue to the right (straight on the big peak) along the path which after a few metres is joined by the unmarked but marked mountain pasture Šija path. Continue left up the path, which climbs steeply and quickly leads to an exposed passage. Without fixed safety gear, cross a short, but crumbly and slightly exposed ledge after which enter lane of dwarf pines. The way ahead climbs over a short lane of dwarf pines and then continues along the side ridge of Košuta. The increasingly scenic and rather steep path joins the ridge path higher up.
Continue straight up the unmarked path, which after 10 steps leads to the summit (Veliki vrh on the left, Kladivo on the right).
