Access to the starting point:
First, drive to Preddvor or Tupaliče (reachable from the Gorenjska highway or Kranj), then continue in the direction of Jezersko and on to Austria. When you reach Border crossing Jezersko, park in the parking lot on the Slovenian side (you can also park on the Austrian side).
Path description:
From the parking lot on the Slovenian side of the border, continue towards Austria, then turn left on the Slovenian side onto the first road that branches off the main road. After a few steps along the road, you will see yellow mountain signs pointing towards Kärntner Storschitz / Kärtner Storschitz, and you will pass the signs on the left and continue along the dirt road. The road turns slightly to the left just a little further on and passes completely to the Slovenian side, where it climbs up the slopes of the Pristovški Storžič. The road then leads us to the upper edge of the Rakeževa mountain pasture, from which we have a beautiful view of Zgornje Jezersko and the highest peaks of the Kamniško Savinjske Alps. The road continues through the forest and occasionally leads over a viewpoint. Higher up, at the former JNA guardhouse, a path joins us from the left, past the Ankovi waterfalls, and we continue along the road, which is completely laid out. A little further on, at a small crossroads, we continue on the road on the left (we can reach Kärntner Storschitz by following the road on the right (after crossing the road, it joins the marked path from the village of Korte / Trögern)), which gradually starts to descend more visibly. After a few minutes of descending, you will reach Roblekova planina, from which you will have a nice view of Virnikov Grintovec, Pečovnik, Plešivec and Tolsto Košuta.
From the upper part, descend to the shepherd's hut, which you pass on the left. Lower down, the road turns into woods and leads to a marked crossroads where a marked trail to Virnikov Grintovec / Kleiner Grintoutz branches off to the left, and we continue along the road, which descends moderately. A little further down, the road turns right to continue parallel to the Grintoviška brook / Grintoutzbach, which is on our left. From the bend, walk along the road for a few more steps, then descend to the brook on an easier trackless track, cross it carefully, and then on the other side of the brook begin a moderate climb westwards, where, with a bit of luck, you will quickly reach the cart track, which after 2 to 3 minutes leads to another dirt road, which you reach just as you reach the right-hand serpentine road (looking in the direction of the climb up the road). We climb over the serpentine and continue our ascent on a moderately ascending road, which quickly leads us to a kind of back, where cart track branches off to the left, initially still a road, which ends under the slopes of Virnik's Grintovec, and we continue slightly to the left on a wider macadam road. Then we cross the mostly northern slopes of Virnikov Grintovec, where part of the way we get a nice view of the summit wall, and on the other side we can see Obir. A slightly longer descent follows, but the road still offers beautiful views towards Tolsta Kosuta, Obir, Kärntner Storschitz and other surrounding mountains. At a few small junctions, we continue along the "main" road, which runs mostly west to north-west, all the time on the Austrian side of the border. When the road starts to climb again, it gradually approaches the state border fully, and a little higher up the road makes a sharp left turn. After the serpentine bend, the road returns to the border, and we follow it almost to the end. It is best to leave the road somewhere near the border stone 222 (some of the border stones are visible from the road, so you can roughly guess which one is 222), and then continue along the path that continues directly along the state border. When you leave the road, you first climb moderately and then come out of the forest, at the edge of a large clearing. Cross the coppice and ascend the Slovenian side of the border at a slight incline. When the climb ends, there are a few steps of descent. After these few steps downhill, you join the more beaten track leading from the ruins of Pečovnik (former JNA caravan).
Continue on the more beaten track, which continues on the Slovenian side, and after a few minutes of cross-climbing, returns to the ridge. Continue slightly left and pass the stone No 238 and walk below the summit of Pečovnik (1640 m), which is just a few steps off the path.
