Access to the starting point:
a) From the motorway Ljubljana - Jesenice take the exit Lesce, then follow the road to Bled and on to Bohinjska Bistrica. Approximately 1 km after Bled, you will arrive at a crossroads where you turn right towards Bohinjska Bela. When we arrive in Bohinjska Bela, we first pass through the hamlet of Spodnja vas, and then follow the signs for Iglica, which will lead us to the hamlet of Zgornja vas and a little further on to a small parking lot above the hamlet, which is at the end of the road. You can also park further down by St Marjeta's Church, by the railway station or elsewhere in a suitable location.
b) From Bohinjska Bistrica drive towards Bled, then turn left towards Bohinjska Bela before Bled. When you reach the hamlet of Zgornja vas, follow the signs for Iglica, which will take you above the hamlet, where you can park in a small parking lot at the end of the road. You can also park lower down by the Church of St. Marjeta, by the railway station or elsewhere in a suitable place.
Path description:
From the end of the road, follow the cart track in a few steps to the foot of the climbing area. In the middle of the climbing area, you will see a protected path that climbs almost vertically along the narrow chimney below Iglica. The route along chimney is mostly secured by a wooden ladder and a rope. Once out of the ravine, cross the little bridge and in a few steps reach the top of Iglica, from where a beautiful view opens up.
From the top we return to the little bridge, and then on the other side we continue along the path, which we quickly follow out of the forest and arrive at the hamlet of Brezje, where we get on the asphalt road, which we follow to the left, and then quickly arrive above the hamlet.
From the end of the hamlet, continue along the road, which takes you a little higher to a crossroads, where you continue to the right. The road through the forest leads us higher up to the lower slopes of Slamniki. Here, first passing a hut on the left, the path leads to a crossroads where it continues to the left in the direction of Galetovec and Slamniki (to the right mountain pasture Rčitno). The path continues through the lane of the forest and then leads to the scenic slope of Slamniki, on which there are several huts. The road then goes into the forest and leads to a small crossroads, where it continues to the right. This road is soon abandoned as faint markings direct us left into the forest. Next, we climb steeply along a destroyed path (fallen trees) through the forest. When the path changes from deciduous to coniferous forest, the fallen trees also end. The climb ahead is much easier than among the fallen trees. A little higher up, the path leads to a forest road, which you follow to the left. After a few minutes' walk along the road, you will come to a crossroads where you turn sharp left in the direction of Galetovec. Leave the road at the point where the signs for Galetovec direct you to the left across the meadow, first down and then up. The path then goes into the woods, where it goes all the way to the last few metres below the summit, from which we get a nice view.
