Access to the starting point:
a) From the motorway Ljubljana - Jesenice take the exit Naklo, then continue in the direction of Žeje, Spodnje and Zgornje Duplje until Retnje, where you turn right towards Križe. Continue past the NOB memorial, the sports ground Križe to the parking area next to the cemetery and the parish church of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross.
b) From the motorway Jesenice - Ljubljana, take the exit Podbrezje 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 past the NOB memorial, the sports ground Križe to the parking area next to the cemetery and the parish church of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross.
Path description:
From the parking lot, continue along the road to the east, where the path leads you first past the church, then past the post office, the Benk Inn and the bakery to the crossroads at the chapel, where you continue left in the direction of Pristava. The road then leads us past the Tušek market Markič shop, and then we see the first mountain signs for Gozd, Kriško gora and Storžič, which lead us right onto Planinska cesta. At the crossroads through the village, follow the markings, and then the road loses its asphalt coating and turns into a forest. A few minutes higher up, at the junction of dirt roads, continue right, and then gradually emerge from the forest, from where a beautiful view opens up towards Gorenjska. After the viewpoint, the road becomes asphalted and leads to a place where you join the road leading to Gozd. Follow the road to the left, but walk along it for only a short distance, as the signs lead you to the right to cart track.
Leave the road at a small information board informing you of the opening of the Shelter in Gozd. From cart track continue immediately 2 times to the left, following the forest path, which soon joins another cart track, which will take you back to the asphalt road in a few minutes. We walk along the road for a few steps, then the path from Tržič joins us on the left, and the footpath or cart track continues on the right towards the Shelter in Gozd, and we continue along the asphalt road to the nearby parking lot.
From the parking lot, continue in the direction of the steep path to Kriško hora. For a short time we continue walking along a fairly steep path, but then it becomes steeper. A steep ascent follows along a more or less forest path, and then you reach an undistinguished ridge, where the path becomes even steeper. There are a few minutes of walking through the forest, then the forest ends quickly and the ascent continues on an increasingly scenic grassy slope. With fine views of Julian Alps, a large part of Gorenjska, part of the Ljubljana basin and the Inner, Polhograje and Škofjeloško hribovje, we reach a bench at the top of the grassy slope. Above the bench, the path returns to the forest, and the path from Tržič via Mala and Velika Mizica joins from the left.
Continue right here, then in a moderate ascent, first through the forest and in the last part on a grassy slope, in about 15 minutes you will reach Kočo na Kriški gori (Cottage on Kriški Mountain).
From Koča na Kriški gori, continue along the marked path towards Tolste vrh. Just a few metres after the hut, the trail turns slightly left (slightly 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 crossing, you reach a place 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.
