Access to starting point:
A) From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Lipce (Jesenice east), where we turn left (direction Blejska Dobrava and Spodnje Gorje). After 100 meters of driving, immediately after we drove through the railway underpass, we find ourselves at the next crossroad, where we go right in the direction of Gorje, Bled (left Blejska Dobrava). After the steeper ascent we drive through the settlement Kočna and we continue towards Spodnje Gorje, where soon after we over a bridge cross river Radovna and the road ascends a little, we run into the left turn-off of the road with signs "Zasip, Vintgar, Podhom". Here we turn left and already after few 10 meters at the crossroad again left, in the direction of "Vintgar". We are soon again at the crossroad, where we don't continue downwards towards Vintgar, but only slightly right or straight uphill on a parking lot (a sign by the road at the crossroad). The right road runs into a village. We park on a settled parking lot by the playground.
B) From Bled we go towards Pokljuka and Spodnje Gorje. In Spodnje Gorje we follow the signs Jesenice, Vintgar. At the crossroad which is situated few meters ahead from inn Fortuna we turn right, in the direction of "Zasip, Vintgar, Podhom". Already after few 10 meters, at the crossroad we turn left, in the direction of "Vintgar". We are soon again at the crossroad, where we don't continue downwards towards Vintgar, but only slightly right or straight uphill on a parking lot (a sign by the road at the crossroad). The right road runs into a village. We park on a settled parking lot by the playground.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we continue forward through the pasture, towards the hill Hom, which we see in front of us. The path over a pasture turns slightly to the right and soon starts ascending. Soon, when the path turns sharply right we ignore left turn-off of cart track uphill towards the forest (path on Hom), and we continue on our wide and gentle path which leads us towards the east. While walking on open grassy slope we soon get nice views on large part of Gorenjska with Julian Alps, Pokljuka and Jelovica, and later Karawanks and Kamnik Alps at the back. On the path we few times cross a grazing fence, and we also meet benches on which we can enjoy a rest. When the path brings us above the last below the slopes situated village (Zasip), we notice a little distant church of St. Katarina, and soon for the last time we cross a grazing fence, and we step on a larger macadam parking lot on Sveta Katarina on Hom. On the left we notice catering facility, and slightly right or straight by the path into a valley an ancient church. A rest and a view we can enjoy on the nearby benches.
On the way: Hom pri Bledu (834m)
