Access to the starting point:
From the motorway Ljubljana - Jesenice take the exit Kranj West and follow the road towards Golnik. Shortly after the village Tenetiše, you will see signs for the village of Goriče, which will direct you to the right on the local road. Just a little further on, you will come to the next crossroads, where you will continue to the right in the direction of the village Trstenik and Preddvor. We do not follow this road for long either, because after a few metres we will notice a sign with the inscription Zalog, which directs us to the left on the ascending road, which we then follow to the mentioned village. In the middle of the village, a little before the church, you will notice a road that turns right from the main road. Follow this road and you will soon see signs along it. Follow this road for about 1 km, then park in one of the roadside car parks.
Path description:
From the starting point we continue along the road along which we parked, but it continues to get worse and gets higher and leads us to the NOB memorial, where we leave the road and continue the climb right along the ascending cart track. At the point where the cart track, which we continue to climb, turns left, we will see on the right-hand side a path which starts to climb steeply through the forest (the beginning is not marked).
The path, along which you will notice rare markings, then leads past a small chapel to where the path from the village of Povlje joins us, and a few steps further on it splits into two parts. Continue to the right in the route Velika Poljana (straight ahead Mala Poljana), where after a few steps you arrive at a viewpoint with a pleasant bench.
From the lookout point, continue along the path, which climbs gently to the right at first, then to the left, and after a few steps into the forest, where it begins to climb steeply. The path soon turns into a wide, vegetated ridge, where it continues for some time.
After a while, the relatively steep path, which turns slightly to the right at a higher level, leads us to the wide cart track, where we join the Dolenč path from Povelj.
Continue straight ahead on the ascending cart track, which leads past the 'refreshment room' to where a marked footpath branches off to the left from cart track. The ascent can be continued along the above-mentioned footpath, which climbs over grassy slopes, or along the cart track, which climbs along the edge of the forest. The two paths merge at a higher level and lead easily to the Cottage on Velika Poljana.
From the hut, continue along the gently sloping path, which climbs mountain pasture and leads us in 5 minutes to the saddle between Grebenc and Psico, where there is also a marked crossroads. Continue right into the forest along the path in the direction of Storžič over Psico (Mala Poljana on the left). The path starts to climb quite steeply and then turns slightly to the right and the steepness eases slightly. This path soon leads us out of the forest and to the crossroads of the path below Psico.
At this crossroads, a very difficult path continues to the left along the ridge of Psica, and we continue to the right in the direction of the easier path to Storžič. From the crossroads onwards, the path descends and ascends again several times, leading us along the slopes of the Psice, from which we occasionally get some views, but otherwise the first part of the crossing is mostly through the forest. After a further 30 minutes' walk, we arrive at a crossroads where the crossing ends and we join the path leading to Storžič along the south-west gully. Follow the above-mentioned path up to the left (right down mountain pasture Javornik, Povlje, and you can also reach the hamlet of Laško and the village of Bašelj) and start climbing steeply along the path that leads you along the south-west gully of Storžič. After the above-mentioned gutter, from which we have increasingly beautiful views towards Gorenjska, we climb for a good hour, and then the path turns slightly to the right and leads us to the south-west ridge Storžiča, where we are joined on the right by an unmarked path leading along the above-mentioned ridge.
Continue along the ridge, the marked path then turns slightly to the right and soon we are joined by other paths from Dom pod Storžičem and Kališča. From here it is a short climb to the summit, which we can already see in front of us, and then it is a short climb with wonderful views.

Nočem biti nespoštljiv do avtorja zadnjih opisov za Storžič, vendarle bi se vprašal v smiselnost delanja le teh opisov, ki so že vsi v bazi le kombinacije so druge. Ker na tak način se da samo pri Storžiču še kakšnih 50 izletov uredit.
