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.
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). Cart track, which climbs transversely to the east, has a few crossroads in the lower part, but these 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 woods onto the grassy slopes. After a while, the path lays down and leads to a pleasant lookout with a bench, next to which you can see 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 straight ahead in the direction Velika Poljana (left Tolsti vrh), where you cross wooded slopes for a short time, then the forest gradually thins out and turns to the steeper slopes of Štajnarice, where it continues with some short ascents and descents, and in the more difficult places there are a few rocks to help you. In the last part of the Štajnarica crossing, we cross a steep grassy slope, from where we get our first close view of Storžič. Behind the bench, the path passes into the forest and then begins to descend crosswise towards Mala Poljana, which is reached after a few minutes. Once out of the forest, you will also reach the cart track, which leads you down to the hunting lodge at Mali Poljana.
From Mala Poljana, where the path from Tolsti vrh, Dom pod Storžičem and Zaloga joins, continue along the left side of the hunting lodge, following the path in the direction of Velika Poljana. The trail, which follows cart track, goes quickly into the forest, where it then climbs crosswise. After a few minutes' walk, you reach a viewing slope from which a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains opens up. Just a little further on, cart track turns to the right and after a short climb leads us to the upper edge of Velika Poljane, where there is a marked crossroads. Continue to the right (straight Storžič) and after a good minute of further walking you will arrive at the Cottage on Velika Poljani.
