Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Lesce and follow the road towards Bled and forward towards Bohinjska Bistrica and lake Bohinj. After the settlement Laški Rovt we will get to a smaller crossroad, where the road which leads towards the starting point of the path on Rodica, mountain pasture Suha, Šija, Vogel... and scout camp Laški Rovt branches off to the left. Macadam road immediately passes into the forest and at first ascend past the mentioned scout camp, and then it is few kilometers relatively steeply ascending. After a little less than 6.5 km of driving on a macadam, we will get to a little bigger crossroad, where a road towards the mountain pasture Planina Storeča raven (starting point of the path on Vogel) branches off to the right. Here we continue straight and after approximately 50 meters of additional driving, we get to the left turn, where there is a starting point of the path towards Planina Suha. We park on an appropriate place by the road.
Path description:
Near the parking lot, on the west side of the torrent we notice a marked footpath which leads towards the mountain pasture Planina Suha. The path is at first ascending on the right side of the torrent, and then it joins it. After few steps of walking on torrential gravel marked path turns to the right and entirely flattens. Gentle walk quickly interrupts steep ascent on a relatively steep slope. The steepness then a little decreases and well-marked path then leads us through a dense forest on and by a torrent upwards. A little higher, the marked path withdraw from the torrent to the left and after few minutes joins it again. The path which then runs on the right side of the torrent soon brings us out of the forest on an ample mountain pasture Suha.
From the mountain pasture, we continue past a shepherd hut by the deposits of torrential gravel. In parts very poorly visible footpath in the upper part of the mountain pasture turns slightly left. Further, the path that starts turning slightly to the right is much easier to follow. After a short ascent, we bypass the hunting cottage, which we notice on the right side.
The path then starts ascending steeper on a slope, which is partly covered with dwarf pines. This path with increasingly beautiful view, higher brings us to a little bigger cairn, where there is a crossing (straight marked path on a saddle Čez Suho, left unmarked path over Lepo Suho).
We continue straight on a marked path, which is ascending between dwarf pines and rare trees. Higher the trees go away and the path comes to a sinkhole below the saddle Čez Suho. The path bypasses it on the left side and soon after that, it brings us to a crossing on the saddle Čez Suho. Here stands an old military bunker on which there are signposts.
We go left on a wide grassy ridge with a beautiful view. The path further isn't steep but it has few shorter descents. Soon a panoramic path brings us to the upper pyramid of scenic Rodica.
