Access to the starting point:
a) From the motorway Ljubljana - Jesenice, take the exit Kranj - East, then continue driving in the direction of Jezersko. When you reach Preddvor, leave the main road and turn left towards the centre of the town, and from there follow the signs for Mače. When you arrive in Mače, continue right at the marked crossroads (left Bašelj, straight ahead St Nicholas Church (the church is not accessible by car)) and follow the narrow road above the village, where there is a large marked parking lot.
b) From the motorway Jesenice - Ljubljana, take the exit Kranj - West and continue left at the first junction. Continue through the underpass under the motorway and then to the roundabout, from where you continue in the direction of Golnik. The road continues through Mlaka pri Kranju, and at the end of the village we turn right in the direction of Srakovlje. We then drive through Srakovlje, Spodnja Bela, Srednja Bela to Zgornja Bela, where we turn right towards Preddvor. At Preddvor we see signs for Mače, which direct us left past the primary school onto the road that climbs up to Maca. When you arrive at Mače, continue right at the marked crossroads (left Bašelj, straight ahead St Nicholas Church (the church is not accessible by car)) and follow the narrow road above the village, where there is a large marked parking lot.
Path description:
From the parking lot, head back to the road you left. Follow this road for about half an hour to the crossroads, where you turn left after the Kališče signs. The path here crosses a stream and climbs steeply immediately afterwards. After a few minutes, the path leads to cart track, which we leave immediately. We take the marked footpath which runs between the two tracks. The path continues to climb moderately in the keys. After a while, the path leads back to the track. Follow it straight up, but only for a few minutes, and then turn onto the track. The track leads us to a bench on a lookout ledge within a few minutes of ascent. The path then leads into the forest and climbs gently at first. This nice walk on a less steep path ends quickly. The path then crosses a track and begins to climb in switchbacks through the forest. We walk along the path ahead, which gives us the feeling that we are gaining altitude quickly. The Gozd then becomes a little thinner so that we can look a little here and there towards Gorenjska. The trail then just leads us to mountain pasture Kališče, where the trail from the neighbouring village (Bašelj, Laško) joins us from the left. From here on we have only 15 minutes to climb back through the forest to Dom na Kališču.
From the Dom na Kišče we continue along the wide ridge path towards Storžič. After a few minutes of pleasant scenic walking we arrive at a marked crossroads where we join the slightly less well-trodden path from Bašelj (the path past the church of St. Lovrenec), the path to Storžič continues in a straight line, and we continue to the right in the direction of Bašeljski vrh, Malá Grintovec and Srednji vrh (Middle Peak). From the crossroads onwards we start climbing through dwarf pines, and the path quickly leads us to the next crossroads, where we continue along the bottom right path (left Bašeljski vrh) in the direction Mačensko sedlo.
Then cross Bašeljski vrh, following the path which continues with some short ascents and descents. When the crossing ends, we arrive at Mačensko sedlo, where we join the marked trail with Bašeljski vrh on the left and the unmarked trail through the valley of the Suhe on the right.
Continue straight on in the direction of Maly Grintovec, following the path which begins to climb relatively steeply up the western slope of the mountain. After about half an hour's walk from the Mačen saddle, we arrive at a marked crossroads where the path from Dolga njiva joins from the right. Continue to the left and after some 10 steps of further walking you will reach the top of Maly Grintovec. Mače - Kališče 2:30, Kališče - Mačensko sedlo 45 minutes, Mačensko sedlo - Mali Grintovec 30 minutes.
