Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice we go to the exit Lesce and follow the road towards Bled, Bohinjska Bistrica, Ribčev Laz and ski slope Vogel. We park on a large settled parking lot at the bottom station of the cableway on Vogel.
Path description:
Below bottom station of the cableway on Vogel we notice a forest road (in the winter time ski track), which starts moderately ascending towards the west. The path ahead is for some time gently to moderately ascending, and then it brings us out of the forest on a panoramic slope, from where a beautiful view opens up on Komarča, Pršivec and Lake Bohinj.
When the road or ski track turns left and starts ascending steeper, we need to pay attention, because we will after approximately 100 meters, on the right side notice a smaller cairn, by which starts at first quite overgrown footpath, which after a shorter crossing starts ascending steeper through the forest. Higher, the footpath for some time flattens and crosses little steeper slopes towards the right. From here for a short time a nice view opens up on surroundings, and then the path returns in the forest, through which it again starts ascending steeper. On some spots a little overgrown path, higher brings us to bigger rock (picture number 17), behind which after few 10 meters we get to an unmarked crossing.
At the crossing, by which there is also a smaller cairn, we continue left (right hunting cottage Na Melu and Ražnova Suha) and we continue on more overgrown path, which at first crosses slopes towards the left, after that out of the forest and higher through bushes brings us on panoramic slopes with high grass, from which a nice view opens up on Pršivec and Lake Bohinj. We continue the ascent on occasionally quite overgrown and on some spots also hard to follow path (hard to follow spots are mainly there, where over a path is some fallen tree). Higher, the path for some time continues through a lane of bushes and dwarf pines, and then it comes into a series of smaller valleys, where also numerous cairns showing the path. When dwarf pines already gets quite thinner path turns a little to the right and gradually flattens. Here follows a short left turn and the path brings us to the mountain pasture Planina za Migovcem, where we also step on a marked path Vogel - Komna.
From the mountain pasture, we continue left on a marked path towards Vogel. The path after transient few meters descent starts ascending and it brings us to a marked crossing, where we leave the path which leads towards Vogel. Here we continue right in the direction of the mountain hut Koča na planini Razor, on the path which starts ascending diagonally towards the right. After a shorter crossing, the path leads us past a smaller valley, where we step from the slopes of Bohinjski Migovec on more rocky slopes of Vrh nad Škrbino. Here the path turns a little to the right and over small rough scree brings us to a smaller gully, after which we go into a very short lane of dwarf pines. Above the dwarf pines, the path for a short time steeply ascends, and then it flattens and crosses steep scree towards the right (this part is usually in the early summer still covered with snow, therefore then crampons and ice axe are mandatory). The path ahead on the left side bypasses smaller sinkhole, in which through the entire year stays snow. On the other side of the sinkhole, the path starts ascending steeply towards the notch Škrbina, which we reach after approximately 15 minutes of additional ascent.
When we step on Škrbina, a nice view opens up on Primorska side, and on a crossing, we continue right in the direction of Kuk (left Vrh nad Škrbino, straight downwards mountain hut Koča na planini Razor). The path ahead starts ascending diagonally over steep plates, and then both path and also slope flatten out a little. The path ahead passes below shorter wall of Vrh Kont, and then starts gently descending over occasionally steeper scree. The path ahead on Primorska side crosses also Podrta gora and Mali vrh, and then returns on the main ridge of Spodnje Bohinjske gore, which reaches right on the saddle between Mali vrh and Zeleni vrh. From here we continue in the same direction, only that path from the slopes passes on in parts exposed ridge. The marked path, which occasionally relatively steeply ascends, then with increasingly beautiful views, we follow all the way to grassy Zeleni vrh.
From Zeleni vrh we descend on a marked path which starts descending steeper towards the west. The slope on which we are descending quickly narrows and the path brings us on narrow and slightly exposed ridge. Here the path flattens, and we quickly reach the small saddle, from which we start ascending towards Tolminski Kuk. Above the small saddle follows a short steep ascent, and then the path passes on the ridge, on and by which we are ascending to the highest peak of Spodnje Bohinjske gore.
On the way: Planina za Migovcem (1600m), Škrbina (1910m), Zeleni vrh (2052m)
