Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go on exit Lipce, on which we turn left (direction Blejska Dobrava and Spodnje Gorje). After 100 meters of driving, immediately after we drive through railway underpass, we find ourselves at the next crossroad, where we go left uphill, on Blejska Dobrava (right Bled, Gorje). When in short road flattens, we drive straight through the village, where we follow the signs for Vintgar and cemetery. Over approx 1 km we reach railway tunnel. On its other side, where the road splits we turn right, and after few 100 meters of additional driving we get to a large parking lot, which is located near the cemetery.
Path description:
From the parking lot we continue on foot in the same direction, straight past the cemetery and buildings by it, on our right. Soon after this, when we steped on a macadam road, it turns right and starts slightly descending. Road soon brings us in mixed forest, where through turns is still slightly descending. After this, when it flattens, it brings us near the river Radovna and quite quickly up to a bridge, where we cross a river. On the other side we go right uphill (left hydropower plant), and we get to a parking lot, at the end of which we notice concrete stairs. On them we ascend to log cabin (in season a bar and ticket sales to see a gorge) behind which on a bridge we can by the way also see the waterfall Šum from top downwards. From the log cabin we continue on stairs on far left in direction marked with "Katarina Bled". Path past a smaller abandoned house quickly brings us in the forest and is at first for short time moderately ascending. Soon after this, when it flattens, on a crossing we choose the left and a little later we cross a smaller stream. Quickly we are again on "crossroad", where we continue straight, and path for a short time brings us on clearing, behind which it only ascends a little slightly to the left, back in the forest. A little higher by the path we run into a hayloft, and a smaller source, after this path turns slightly right and soon brings us out of the forest, where we see church Sveta Katarina. On our right is located catering facility, and over a parking lot on opposite side also a bench, where we can take a rest and enjoy the view.
We continue right, past the mentioned catering facility, and left turn off of footpath towards Gorje and Vintgar, on forest cart track in direction of north-west. At first it is in a gentle ascent turning a little to the right. Further we ignore some left turn off and we stick to cart track all the way to its (seemingly) end on open part of forest, where left on the slope of the hill are ascending at least two cart tracks. We continue here slightly (not perpendicularly!) right, or straight, where we can notice, that cart track basically continues in the forest. After this, when after next open part again brings us back in the forest, cart track by moderate ascent narrows into a footpath. It soon brings us to a small saddle, where there is unmarked crossing. Here we leave a wider path and we turn left on a slope of Hom (straight: wrecked and dangerous path above gorge, right: path downwards, which vanishes). When the path brings us over a clearing, we step into a forest and on a slope we quite steeply ascend towards the summit. Even though the path on this part occasionally vanishes, shown direction isn't hard follow. When we come on peak path turns slightly right and for a short time flattens, and after this takes us through a narrow lane of forest. Behind it follows only last moderate ascent by the edge of north-western slope, to the summit of Hom. Here we run into large wooden cross, and box with inscription book and a stamp of peak.
On the way: Slap Šum v Blejskem Vintgarju (520m), Sveta Katarina na Homu (634m)
