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. We continue driving towards the lake Bohinj (Ribčev laz), where we come to a crossroad, where we continue straight on the left (south) side of the lake in the direction of Ukanc and waterfall Savica. We follow this road to the bottom station of the cable car on Vogel, then we buy a ticket and go with a cableway to the upper station, which is the starting point for our tour.
Path description:
When we step from the upper station of the cableway, we go right towards the mountain hut Merjasec. We reach it after 100 meters of walking.
At the mountain hut, we go on the path in the direction of Vogel, Šija and Rodica. The path at first starts slightly descending on a ski track, and then it brings us on a small indistinct saddle, where the path branches off to the right towards Zlatorog. We continue left on a bad road, where there aren't any marks, and we run into a blazes a little further. Cart track road starts ascending and is turning slightly right. A little further, the cart track has a crossroad but left steep and right gentle quickly join. Then on the right side we notice a cross, where a worse road flattens and it brings us to the crossing on a smaller plateau.
Here on the right side we see the upper station of two-seater chairlift Zadnji Vogel. We go on a ski track, that starts descending and soon makes a left turn. Our path is descending to the right turn of ski track, where we leave it.
We continue straight, where we notice nicely beaten footpath which starts to at first gently and then steeper and steeper ascending. The path is ascending to a crossroad, where joins the path from below Orlove glave. Here we go in the direction of Komna, and the path starts descending. After that, the path gets a good pace and starts slightly ascending. A little further, we come to a crossing, where a signpost for Vogel points us to the left upwards. The path here starts ascending and over the scree brings us on notch Škrbina, which is the lowest point between Primorska and Gorenjska from Mangart to Črna Prst (if we don't count Vršič). On the notch Škrbina, where joins the path below the slopes of Šija a view opens up on Primorska.
We continue right on the ridge, which is exposed steeply upwards. Next follows the hardest part of the path, we cross a short precipitous ledge without safety catches. Ahead we cross a gully after that problems vanish. Below the upper slope of Vogel we cross the scree, and then the path ascends on grassy slopes to the saddle between Vogel and Vrh Krnic.
On the saddle, we go right (left Vogel) and in three minutes of a moderate ascent on an unmarked path which runs on a panoramic ridge we reach the peak.
On the way: Planinska koča Merjasec mountain hut (1535m)
