Access to the starting point:
a) From the motorway Ljubljana - Jesenice take the exit Kranj - west and follow the road towards Golnik. Just after Golnik (more precisely after Senično), a steep road turns off to the right and leads towards Zgornje Vetrno and Gozd. After Zgornje Vetrno, the road continues through the forest, and we follow it to a marked parking area, which is located in the immediate vicinity of the Shelter in the Woods.
b) From the Jesenice - Ljubljana motorway, take the Podbrezje exit and then continue towards Ljubelj and Tržič. Before the Petrol station in Bistrica pri Tržiču, turn right and then drive to Tržič. When the road descends into the valley, take a sharp right in the direction of Pristava and Križ, and continue along the main road leading to Zgornji and Spodnje Duplje, leaving the main road at Retnje, where you turn left in the direction of Križe and Golnik. Continue towards Golnik, and after Križe you will soon reach a small crossroads, where a steep road branches off to the left, leading towards Zgornje Vetrno and Gozd. After Zgornje Vetrno, the road continues through the forest, and we follow it to a marked parking lot, which is located in the immediate vicinity of the Shelter in the Woods.
Path description:
From the shelter, walk to the nearby church, then arrive at a marked crossroads where the path from Golnik joins from the right. Continue left up the deteriorating road, which takes us to the crossroads in a few minutes. Here, take the left-hand path (Tolsti vrh, Mala and Velika Poljana and Storžič on the right), which passes a water reservoir and continues along cart track. Just a few metres further on, cart track leads to the next crossroads. Continue straight ahead along cart track in the direction of Kriška gora (forest path), to the right the usual marked path. Here at the crossroads, a notice board informs us that we will continue along the path, which is exposed to avalanches in winter. Cart track, which climbs through the forest, leads us to grassy slopes after 20 minutes from the crossroads. There is a short climb to a place where the path leads to the scenic side ridge of Kriška Gora. Here we come across an orientation loop. Continue along the right-hand path, which climbs along an inconspicuous side ridge, on the southern slope of Kriška Gora. Slightly higher up, the path leads to a place where, in a slight ascent, we cross grassy slopes, after which the path leads us into a short lane of a forest. Just a little further on, we come to a clearing, above which we see the path of a cargo cableway. The path continues to climb under the cableway up to the hut on Kriški gori.
From Koča na Kriški gori continue along the marked path towards Tolstemu vrh. Just a few metres after the hut, the path turns slightly to the left (slightly to the right, Gozd) and begins to climb gently over a grassy slope. After three minutes of walking, the path to Grahovše branches off almost imperceptibly to the left, and we continue along the well-trodden mountain path, which continues along the main ridge of Kriška Gora. The path continues along the ridge, retreating to the right side a few times, and the scenic route leads us mostly over grassy slopes. A little further on, the path returns to the ridge, which is reached just at a distinct notch, where the path to Grahovše branches off to the left down a pathless trail.
The path continues over a pasture fence and then passes Vrata (1591 m) on the right. Higher up, the path returns to the ridge and climbs gently for some time. After a few minutes of traversing, you reach a point where the path starts to climb steeply towards the summit of Tolstego vrh. From the summit, we get a beautiful view on all sides, and the path leads us on along a narrower ridge for a short time. There is some downhill through the forest, and then the path starts to climb again. Higher up, the forest thins out, and the increasingly scenic route leads us to Tolsti vrh.
