Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Lesce and follow the road ahead towards Bled. In Bled at the traffic lights, the signs for Pokljuka point us to the right. Ahead we drive through Gorje and past abandoned ski slope Zatrnik to Rudno polje on Pokljuka (large parking lot, barracks and shooting range). From here we continue straight on a macadam road, which a little further brings us to a crossroad, where we continue left in the direction of Uskovnica (right mountain pasture Konjščica). From here we drive good 500 meters to the parking lot above Uskovnica. This area is called Razpotje.
Path description:
From the crossroad by which we parked at, we continue on for public traffic closed forest road, which starts steeply descending towards the gorge of the stream Ribnici. After a short descent, we come to the mentioned gorge, over which leads a wide car bridge. After the bridge road flattens and after few minutes of additional walking, it brings us out of the forest on ample meadows of Uskovnica.
Here we walk to the near chapel, and then we continue slightly right on the road, that runs just by the mentioned chapel (left mountain hut Koča na Uskovnici, right mountain pasture Konjščica). A quite gentle road then leads us through large meadows of Uskovnica, and then it brings us to the edge of the forest where it starts changing to at first a wide cart track. Cart track, which further starts moderately ascending has some crossings, we follow it in the direction of Vodnikov dom and Triglav. Higher cart track, which mostly runs through the forest turns into a footpath, which quickly brings us to a pleasant well. At the well we continue straight (right hunting cottage) and we continue the ascent on a gently sloping path, that a little further brings us on steep slopes. Soon after we got to the steep slopes at the crossing through steep gully we have safety catches for help. Path ahead continues on a relatively steep and mainly in wet for slipping dangerous slopes. During the crossing of the steep slopes, path several times for a short time steeply ascends and then descends again. In the last part of the crossing we stride across some very steep gullies, through which leads in parts entirely wrecked path (great risk of slipping). Crossing ends at bigger torrent (usually a well) after which we step on a softer grassy terrain.
Few minutes of easy walking follows and the path brings us to abandoned mountain pasture Spodnji Tosc. Path ahead starts moderately ascending and it soon brings us to a smaller crossing, where we continue sharply right (straight old, partly abandoned path) on easy to follow path. Path ahead starts ascending steeper and steeper and it quickly brings us from a lane of thin forest into dwarf pines, where it starts turning more and more to the left. Path soon flattens and from dwarf pines brings us on grassy slopes, through which in few minutes of additional walking, we ascend to the path Pokljuka - Triglav, where we turn left.
Path ahead crosses the south slopes of Tosc. The path then in a gentle descent crosses a shorter lane of thin forest and then it brings us on steep slopes. A little further ahead path on carved wide ledge in a gentle descent crosses precipitous slopes of Tosc. Since the path is quite wide it doesn't cause problems (carefully because of falling stones, rockfall in the year 2008). The path then again slightly ascends and it brings us to a crossing, where we continue right in the direction of Vodnikov dom. Next follows approximately ten minutes of walking without large ascents or descents to the mountain hut Vodnikov dom na Velem polju.
From the hut, we continue straight in the direction of Triglav (right upward Bohinjska vratca). Path ahead is moderately ascending and crosses slopes below Vernar. Soon we run into the first steel cable, which helps us pass the short ledge. Path ahead is ascending on the scree and then brings us to steep rocky jump. A well-secured path on steep stairs brings us to the top of that jump. Next follows few meters of crossing on a steep slope, and then the path brings us on ample slopes near saddle Konjski preval. That we reach after a short descent.
Further, we continue left in the direction of the mountain hut Dom Planika (straight Kredarica, right Krma). Path ahead is ascending on scree in hairpin turns to indistinct side ridge. Here the path turns right and on the right side bypasses large karst sinkhole in which snow stays for most of the year. Next follows few minutes of an ascent and the path brings us to the mountain hut Dom na Planiki.
The starting point - chapel on Uskovnica 15 minutes, chapel on Uskovnica - Vodnikov dom 3:15, Vodnikov dom - Planika 1:30.
