Access to the starting point:
a) From the motorway Ljubljana - Jesenice take the exit Lesce and then continue to Bled. At Bled, "overlook" the left turn-offs in the direction of Koritno, Bodešče, Ribno and Sel, and continue driving to the traffic lights where the road to Gorje and Pokljuka turns off to the right. At this junction, continue straight ahead and start descending towards Lake Bled. When you see the Peking Chinese Restaurant on the left, leave the main road towards Bohinjska Bistrica and follow the road behind the restaurant to the left onto Narodnih herojev Street. At a few small junctions continue along the main road, then arrive at Cankarjeva cesta, which you then drive along for a while, or to the junction by the chapel, where you continue slightly right in the direction of Sela and Dobra gora (continue along the main road Ribno). Continue driving along the gradually narrowing road, which takes you along meadows and fields for a while, then turns into a forest through which it begins to descend. Lower down the forest ends, and we arrive in the village of Selo and a little further on at a small crossroads, where we continue straight on (left and then immediately right) down towards Sava and Kupljenik (left Ribno, right Bled). There is some more downhill on the still relatively narrow road, and then the asphalt ends and we take a slightly wider macadam road to the Selo Bridge over the Sava Bohinjka. Park in a convenient place by the bridge.
b) First drive to Podbrdo and from there to Bohinjska Bistrica (by car-train or via Soriška mountain pasture). From Bohinjska Bistrica continue driving to Bled, and when you reach the lake turn right towards Sela. Continue along the narrow Mill Road. Bled soon ends, and the still relatively narrow road leads to the village of Selo, where at a small crossroads in the middle of the village we continue to the right in the direction of Sava and Kupljenik (left Bled, straight Ribno). There is some more downhill on the still relatively narrow road, and then the asphalt ends, and we take a slightly wider macadam road to the Selo Bridge over the Sava Bohinjka River. Park in a convenient place by the bridge.
Path description:
From the starting point, cross the bridge over the Sava Bohinjka River, which offers a beautiful view of Ribenska Gora, and after the bridge, continue to the right in the direction of Bohinjska Bela, Kupljenik and Taleža. Continue along the macadam road along the river for a short distance, then at the first crossroads turn left onto the worse road towards Talež (straight on to Kupljenik). The minor road climbs for a few minutes along the pasture fence, at the end of which it splits into two cart track.
Continue along the left cart track (the crossroads are not marked), which gradually turns left and quickly leads us to a hayfield, from which we get some views towards Karawanks, but not as nice as the one below from the starting point, as part of the view is obscured by spruce trees. Behind a dilapidated hayloft, located at the end of the hayfield, the path returns to the forest and begins to climb steeply. The path continues along the relatively wide logging trail, where all the right-hand branches of the side tracks are "overlooked". When you reach a small crossroads higher up, at which you see the markers for Hunting cottage Talež, continue slightly right, along the still wider cart track. The route continues to climb crosswise to the right and follows the occasionally steeper slopes of Tolstego vrh (883 m). At the part where the path is slightly lowered, a technically slightly more difficult path joins us from the right with Kupljenik, which has been closed since 2014 due to the ice storm.
From the crossroads continue in the direction of Taleža, along a marked trail, which in a few minutes of further ascent arrives at a crossroads on a small saddle, next to which there is a small bench and a memorial to the National Liberation Day.
At the saddle, the trail continues to the left to Tolsti vrh and further to Hunting cottage Talež, straight ahead to mountain pasture Talež, and to the right the trail continues to mountain pasture Vršan and Jelovica.
Continue in the direction of mountain pasture Vršana (there are no signs for mountain pasture Vršana at the crossroads) and start climbing cross-country to the right. There are a few minutes of moderate ascent, and then the path leads to the edge of mountain pasture Vršan, where there is a game feeding area. Go around the mountain on the right and continue your ascent along the path, accompanied by the rare mountain shoe markings along the way. A few minutes higher up, you enter a relatively new forest road, but there are only signs for the direction from which you are coming. Follow the road to the left and, after a few steps, when you see a path on the right, leave the road and follow the path. There are a few minutes of moderate ascent, and then the path lays down and leads us to the edge of the plateau, where we see a sign saying that we are on Baba, and since we are over 1000 metres high, there is no sin.
From here we continue for a short time on a fairly steep path through the forest, then we arrive on a worse forest road, which we follow to the right, and quickly arrive at a small crossroads, where we continue to the left, i. e. on the road, next to which we notice a "shoe" on a trunk (straight ahead for less than 5 minutes, an exceptional viewpoint at the forestry hut on Baba). We continue on a fairly bad road, which we follow to the right at a small crossroads. A few minutes' descent follows and the path leads to mountain pasture Prihodi.
From mountain pasture continue left along cart track, and immediately from the right the marked path from Kupljenik joins us. Cart track soon turns into a footpath which, with the "help" of a signpost, leads us to a precipitous ridge. The path mostly runs a few metres to the left of the precipice, so there is no major danger of slipping, but we must be careful especially when we take a few steps to the right off the marked path to get a good view. The path, which offers beautiful views between the treetops towards Bled, Bohinjska Bela and the highest peaks of Julian Alps, leads us to the foothill, where a less visible path branches off to the left towards the nearby mountain pasture Ricman.
Continue straight ahead, following the path which begins to descend visibly. After a few minutes, the descent ends, and it is only a short, moderate climb to the lookout point and the Babji zob registration box.
Selski most - mountain pasture Vršan 1:15, mountain pasture Vršan - mountain pasture Prihodi 45 minutes, mountain pasture Prihodi - Babji zob 30 minutes. Description and figures refer to the situation in 2015 (April).
