Above Tržič we drive through Jelendol up to our starting point at pod Krnico. We follow easy marked trail through forest up to planina Spodnja Dolga njiva. Here we can usually taste delicious traditional food (masovnik, žganci, ...) and enjoy the company of domestic animals. We can foolow the trail to Mala and Tolsta Košuta (2.057 m) or Košutnikov turn (2.133 m; a short passage with iron rope just before the summit).
Hints for tours
Hit marked easy trail that goes by Base Camp. Follow it through villages of Zgodnje Vetrno (hunters' hut) and Gozd (hut of Mountain Club Križe). The path hits steeper slopes, gets into forest and again sets down through forest sledges towards west. Then it climbs up to belvedere razgledni Tolsti vrh (1.715 m), from which we slowly descend over ridge of Kriška gora to the Hut on Kriška gora (1.471 m).
Through Podljubelj we drive up to the parking place, marked with a barrier on the road to Matizovec farm. We follow marked easy trail that goes by the farm and through the forest to planina Kofce (hut). We continue over planina and higher over the ridge trail up to Kofce gora (1.967 m). From here we go back or continue west to Veliki vrh (2.088 m) or east to Veliko Kladivo (2.094 m). We return to the starting point.
Among a lot of possible starting points this time we choose that at Jelšev konfin. We can get there over Kranjski Rak saddle. We follow marked easy trail through forest and then past shepherds' lodgings up to Mala andVelika planina. It's easy to reach the summit of Gradišče (1.666 m).
We drive through village of Stara Fužina up to planina Blato. We follow marked easy trail past planinas Pri jezeru, Dedno Polje and Ovčarija over Prodi and to Hut at Triglav Lakes in picturesque embrace of the Double Lake. We can variegate hike back over Štapce (shorter passage with iron ropes).
We park on a smaller place at Vranček below Ljubelj. We follow marked easy trail going mostly on road up to planina Korošica (hut). From here we can go on to Ljubelj and Zelenica or to Mt. Košutica (1.968 m) or Hajnž's Sadlle and on via ferrata up to summit of Veliki vrh (2.088 m).
