Access to the starting point:
From the motorway Ljubljana - Jesenica take the exit Lesce and follow the road towards Bled and on to Bohinjska Bistrica. Just before Bohinjska Bistrica, at Bitnje, take a sharp right in the direction of Pokljuka. After a short climb, the road flattens out and quickly leads into the Upper Bohinj Valley. Here, at the crossroads, continue left (Pokljuka on the right) and follow the road to Srednja vas. Here, in another part of the village, you will see signs for Uskovnica (7 km), which direct you to the right onto a narrower, initially asphalt road. Follow the road, which climbs most of the time, to the "Lom" parking lot, where there is a sign prohibiting further driving (only landowners are allowed to drive further).
Path description:
From the parking lot, continue in the route Koča na Uskovnici, following the road which leads quickly out of the forest, where you will see signs for cheese, milk and homemade products. A short path branches off the road to the left and leads to the nearby cheese cottage pr Ulčnek, where you can buy the aforementioned products during the grazing season, otherwise continue straight ahead to a marked crossroads a few steps away, where you turn right in the direction of Koča na Uskovnice. The way forward leads us first past the sign (cross) and then on between the pastures. When the pastures end on the right, the marked path from Srednja vas (the "Za Ribnico" path) joins us from the right.
Continue straight on, then pass the cottages to reach a water trough and a few steps further on to a place where the signs for the familiar cottage direct you left to cart track. There is a short climb up the cart track and the path leads to the Cottage on Uskovnica.
From the hut continue in the direction of Tosc, Draškega vrh, Viševnik, Vodnikov dom, Rudni polje and Praprotnice along the path which first crosses the grazing fence and then quickly joins the macadam road, which is followed to the right. The road then leads between bumpy meadows, and after crossing the next fence, you quickly reach a crossroads at the Chapel of Our Lady Queen of Peace at Uskovnica.
After the chapel, continue left (straight mountain pasture Konjščica, right Rudno polje) along a sloping road which leads across the extensive meadows of Uskovnica, and then leads to the edge of the forest, where it begins to turn into an initially wide cart track. The cart track, which then starts to climb moderately, has a few forks, and we follow it in the direction of Vodnikov dom and Triglav. Higher up, the cart track, most of which runs through the forest, turns into a footpath, which quickly leads us to a pleasant small spring. At the well, continue straight ahead (hunting lodge on the right) and continue the ascent along the gently sloping path, which leads us slightly further up the steep slopes. Soon after we have reached the steep slopes, the fixed safety gear are helpful in crossing the steep ravine. The route continues along relatively steep and, especially in wet conditions, slippery slopes. While crossing the steep slopes, the path climbs steeply for a short time and then descends again. In the last part of the crossing, some very steep ravines are crossed, over which the path is in places completely destroyed (high risk of slipping). The crossing ends at a large torrent (usually a small spring), after which you enter a softer world of grasses. A few minutes of easy walking and the path leads to the abandoned mountain pasture Lower Tosc. The way forward begins to climb moderately and soon leads us to a small crossroads where we continue sharp right (straight old, partly abandoned path) along a nice traceable path. The way forward starts to climb steeper and steeper and quickly leads us out of the belt of sparse forest between dwarf pines, where it starts to turn more and more to the left. The path soon becomes a gentle slope and from dwarf pines it leads to grassy slopes over which, within a few minutes' further walking, we climb up to the Pokljuka - Triglav route.
Follow the above-mentioned path to the right, and after a few steps it will lead you to the place where the path to Tosc branches off to the left. Continue in the direction of Tosc (the branch is marked) along the unmarked but well-traced path, which begins to climb steeply over the grassy slopes of Tosc. The increasingly steep path slowly turns slightly to the right, then turns sharply to the left and almost completely flattens out. After crossing a short steep slope, the path leads to less steep slopes, where it gradually begins to disappear. The less visible path then turns slightly to the right and starts to climb slightly steeper. After a few minutes of ascent, we reach the unmarked Mali Tosc, which opens up a view of Tosc. A short descent follows and the path leads us past a large sinkhole, which we bypass on the right-hand side, to the foot of Tosc. The way forward climbs moderately over a pleasant grassy slope and after a few minutes of further walking leads us to the top of Tosc.
In the fog, orientation is difficult in the last part.
