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.
At the chapel, the path to Vodnikov dom continues to the left, the path to Pokljuka continues to the right, and we continue straight on in the direction of mountain pasture Konjščica (also one of the paths that can be used to reach Velo polje, or Vodnik's home). We continue between fenced pastures, along the relatively steep cart track, which offers a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains. Higher up, the path, which leads us past a few more cottages, flattens out and we join the wider cart track, which leads from Pokljuka, or from the vicinity of the bridge over the Ribnica River (in the descriptions, the starting point is Uskovnica (Razpotje)), towards mountain pasture Konjšica.
A little further on, we get a nice view towards Viševnik, and cart track then climbs for some time crosswise, mostly through the forest. Higher up, we cross a pasture fence and the path leads us to the south-western edge of mountain pasture Konjščica. Here the path, which was occasionally a little steeper again, completely flattens out and leads us across mountain pasture. While crossing, cross a few small streams, then cross a slightly larger stream behind a small cross, and in a few steps reach the cheese cottage at mountain pasture Konjščica, where it is possible to buy some dairy products during the grazing season. Go around the cheese cottage on the right and continue for a short distance along the marked path which starts descending towards Pokljuka (in the descriptions the starting point is the end of the road at Pokljuka). After crossing the nearby stream where the marked path turns right, continue straight on the unmarked path which starts climbing up the pastures mountain pasture Konjščica.
When you leave the stream bed, the path is lost and laid. Cross the grazing area and continue eastwards or slightly further to the right until the track becomes more distinct. After crossing a torrential gully, the track becomes more distinct and, with fine views of the mountains surrounding mountain pasture, Konjščica starts to climb more steeply. Higher up, the path turns into a forest, and then quickly leads to the marked Rudno polje - Triglav trail, which is reached just at a sort of back.
Follow the marked path down to the left, and we follow it only as far as the first torrent crossing. At the torrent we leave the marked path and continue our ascent along the torrent, initially straight up. Soon we can see the footprints of our predecessors, and a few steps higher we see a well-traced path (you can also get here by following the path that branches off into the woods from the aforementioned back (the start of the path is not visible)). Here the path crosses a small stream to the right, and then turns slowly in a semicircle to the left, where it leads us across a meadow, where the path is not visible. As we approach the stream again we see the track again, but it crosses the stream and starts to climb crossways on the other side. The path then climbs into a small valley, where it disappears again. When the valley flattens out, continue right, where after a few metres you see the track again, this time more distinct. From the point where we left the valley, we walk for only a minute or two, and then we see a small cairn along the path, at which the path splits into two parts. The left path leads to the saddle between Viševnik and Plesišče, while the path that continues straight ahead joins the marked Rudno polje - Viševnik path at Zlaté vode.
Continue straight on the trail, which then ascends the slopes of Plesišče. Higher up, you reach the ridge of the above-mentioned peak, where you climb it for a short time, then the path turns slightly right and passes onto the eastern slopes. Continue ascending cross-climbing for a few minutes and then enter a pasture where the track starts to disappear. Continue walking in roughly the same direction, where, with a bit of luck, you will reach the source of the Golden Water. From the spring, continue straight ahead or slightly left, then in a few minutes join the marked path Rudno polje - Viševnik, which is reached between the marked crossroads, where the path branches off towards Blejska koča na Lipanci and the saddle between Plesišče and Viševnik. When you reach the trail, continue to the left and then quickly climb to the saddle from where you will have a beautiful view.
At this saddle, you will reach the marked Rudno polje - Viševnik trail, which you follow to the left. The way forward climbs first moderately and then steeply through lane of dwarf pines. Higher up, dwarf pines ends and the path leads to a mini-valley from where a fine view opens up. Further on, we climb up a steeper and more scenic grassy slope, and the path then turns slightly to the right and leads us in a cross-climb to the ridge Viševnik, where we get another nice view towards Rjavina and the surrounding mountains. The trail continues along and along the ridge and climbs only moderately for some time. After a short crossing, we arrive at the bottom of Viševnik, where the path becomes quite steep (in winter this part is often icy) and leads us to a scenic summit in a few minutes.
