Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Lipce, where we turn left (direction Blejska Dobrava and Spodnje Gorje). After 100 meters of driving, immediately after we drive through the railway underpass, we find ourselves at the next crossroad, where we go left uphill, on Blejska Dobrava (right Bled, Gorje). When the road soon flattens, we drive straight through the village, where we follow the signs for Vintgar and cemetery. After approx 1 km we reach the 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 next to it, on our right. Soon after we stepped on a macadam road, it turns right and starts slightly descending. The road soon brings us into a mixed forest, where through turns it is still slightly descending. After 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. There we ascend to a log cabin (in the 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 the far left in the direction marked with "Katarina Bled". The path past a smaller abandoned house quickly brings us into the forest and is at first for a short time moderately ascending. Soon after it flattens, at the 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 the path for a short time brings us on a clearing, behind which it ascends only 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, and then the path turns slightly right and soon brings us out of the forest, where we see the church of St. Katarina. On our right there is a catering facility, and over a parking lot on the 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 the footpath towards Gorje and Vintgar, on a forest cart track in the 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 the cart track all the way to its (seemingly) end on the open part of the forest, where left on the slope there are ascending at least two cart tracks. We continue here slightly (not perpendicularly!) right, or straight, where we can notice, that the cart track actually continues in the forest. After the next open part again brings us back into the forest, cart track in a moderate ascent narrows into a footpath. It soon brings us to a small saddle, where there is an unmarked crossing. Here we leave a wider path and we turn left on a slope of Hom (straight: wrecked and dangerous path above the gorge, right: path downwards, which vanishes). When the path brings us through the clearing, we step into the forest and on a slope we quite steeply ascend towards the summit. Even though the path on this part occasionally vanishes, the route isn't hard to follow the. When we come to the peak, the path turns slightly right and for a short time flattens, and then it takes us through a narrow lane of a forest. Behind it follows only the last moderate ascent by the edge of north-western slope, to the summit of Hom. Here we run into a large wooden cross, and box with an inscription book and a stamp of the peak.
On the way: Slap Šum v Blejskem Vintgarju (520m), Sveta Katarina na Homu (634m)
