Access to starting point:
A) From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Lesce, and then we continue driving towards Bled and forward towards Bohinj. When Bled ends, at first road towards Bohinjska Bela branches off to the right, and approximately 1.5 km ahead, on the top of the slope road towards the village Kupljenik branches off to the left. We continue towards Kupljenik and continue driving on an ascending asphalt road which we follow to the mentioned settlement. In the settlement, otherwise on the part where there aren't any houses, we get to the left hairpin turn, in the middle of which short road towards marked parking lot branches off to the right.
B) First, we drive to Podbrdo and from there in Bohinjska Bistrica (with car shuttle train or over Soriška planina). From Bohinjska Bistrica we continue driving towards Bled. Before we get to Bled, we will get to a crossroad, where a road towards the village Kupljenik branches off to the right (turn-off from the main road is marked). We continue towards Kupljenik and continue driving on an ascending asphalt road which we follow to the mentioned settlement. In the settlement, otherwise on the part where there aren't any houses, we get to the left hairpin turn, in the middle of which short road towards marked parking lot branches off to the right.
Path description:
From marked parking lot we continue on a bad road in the direction of cave Jama pod Babjim zobom and Babji zob. The road at first leads us by the edge of the pasture, from where for some time a nice view opens up, which reaches all the way to the highest peaks of Karawanks, and after the left turn, where we notice hiking signposts gradually passes into the forest. Few minutes we walk on the road, after that on a relatively new crossroad of the macadam roads we continue slightly left (in the time of the description crossing wasn't marked) on a cart track which after few meters turns more to the left (straight cave Jama pod Babjim zobom). Next follows an ascent through the forest, and few minutes higher cart track brings us on a panoramic meadow, where by its lower edge is situated a wooden cottage, and nice view opens up towards Lake Bled and part of Karawanks around Golica. Cart track only a little higher brings us on other meadow, where signs lead right, on at first poorly noticeably footpath which passes into the forest. When we step into the forest, the footpath becomes easy to follow, and it starts ascending steeper. Few minutes higher we cross new, not yet fully completed forest road, and above it marked path is quite steeply ascending through the forest. When the path turns right it flattens a little and then it is ascending diagonally towards the right over steeper and steeper slopes. Higher slope becomes even steeper, but the path is relatively wide, so crossing doesn't cause bigger problems, but in wet, snow or leaves a little more caution is needed, especially on the descent. When the path bypasses some rocky towers it turns left, passes into a small valley, and few steps ahead also out of the forest on the mountain pasture Planina Prihod, which has just the right name (arrival), because we came on the edge of Jelovica.
After the hayloft on the mountain pasture Prihodi we step on a cart track, and we follow it straight (right Babji zob) in the direction of Talež. Cart track quickly passes into the forest and it starts moderately ascending. When the path flattens, the cart track splits into two parts, and we continue slightly left, on a further gentle cart track, and on which we quickly get to the next crossroad, where to the right the road continues towards Danejeva planina, and we continue left and in less than 5 minutes of additional walking, we get to the forestry cottage, from which a really nice view opens up towards Lake Bled and surroundings.
On the way: Planina Prihod (1017m)
