Access to the starting point:
From the motorway Ljubljana - Jesenice take the exit Kranj - west and follow the road in the route Golnika. When you reach Golnik, turn right at the top of the ramp in the direction of Golnik Hospital. Park in one of the large car parks located slightly below the hospital.
Path description:
From the parking lot, walk to the hospital, passing it on the left, and then come to the mountain direction signs, which direct you to the footpath that climbs along the fence. After a few steps, cross the road, and then the path that climbs above the village leads into the forest, where it begins to climb steeply. After a short climb, the path joins the wide cart track, which continues the easy ascent. After a few minutes, a marked footpath branches off to the right from cart track, which soon leads to another cart track, which is also soon abandoned. We continue our ascent along a rather steep path, which leads us higher up to a lookout point (view of Gorenjska and Jelovica).
After the lookout point, the path is laid and turns quite to the left, where it then continues in a moderate ascent. Higher up, the trail turns slightly to the right, where a few minutes of further walking leads to the village of Gozd. Here you continue past a few houses and then join the path from the Shelter in Gozd.
Continue to the right in the direction of Kriška gora and follow the road leading past two consecutive NOB monuments to its end. From the end of the road, turn slightly left and continue the ascent along the wide and steep cart track, which quickly leads to a place where it splits into two parts. Continue along the right-hand cart track in the direction of Storžič, Tolsti vrh and Mala and Velika Poljana (on the left, Koča na Kriški gori). The cart track, which climbs transversely eastwards, has a couple of switchbacks in the lower part, but they are well marked, so there are no major problems with orientation. Higher up, cart track turns into a gradually steeper footpath, which leads out of the wods and onto the grassy slopes. After a while, the path lays down and leads us to a pleasant lookout with a bench, next to which we notice a memorial.
The path then crosses a steep grassy slope (danger of slipping and, in winter, of avalanches) and then passes into a dense forest, where it reaches a marked crossroads. Continue left (straight ahead Velika and Mala Poljana across Štajnarica) in the direction of Tolsti vrh and continue steeply upwards. The steep and, especially in the wet, dangerous for slipping path, which climbs crosswise to the right, leads us higher out of the forest to a grassy slope, where it turns slightly to the left. A few minutes of steep ascent follows, and then the path from Dom pod Storžičem and Male Poljane joins us from the right). Continue in the direction of Tolsti vrh and continue the ascent along the still quite steep path, which leads us through a rare lane of a forest to the top slope of the mountain. Here the path slightly bends and leads us to the summit within a few minutes of further walking.
