Through a glacial valley to the foot of the mighty Storžič
A marked mountain trail takes you along the glacially sculpted Lom Valley beneath the mighty north wall of Storžič, which from the northern, Tržič side projects a much starker image than from the southern side. Good thing that the trail ends in the warm shelter of Storžič Mountain Hostel.
From Tržič drive through Lom pod Storžičem to the starting point of the trail. There are several trails that lead to Storžič Mountain Hostel, which is located at the edge of the mountain pasture of Jesenje.
For hikers looking for more of a challenge, the hostel can serve as the starting point for an ascent of Storžič through Žrelo or across Škarjev Rob, while climbers can choose the climbing route past the bivouac or an even more challenging route. There are also any number of less demanding ascents in the vicinity of the hostel. Nearby are the peaks of Veliki Javornik, Stegovnik, Tolsti Vrh and Bela Peč, and the Konšca Thematic Trail can also be started here.
In winter there are excellent sledding runs from here, and you can get to the hostel using snowshoes or mountaineering skis.
