A hiking trail on a mountain overlooking Lake Bled. There are three observation points where you can decide whether to go to all of them or only some of them (it is recommended to go to all of them since the observation angle is a little different and also the height)
Distance 4.3 km
Highest point748 m
Lowest point476 m
A medium-level hiking trail that provides a spectacular and unique view of Lake Bled (the view from the castle is unmatched both in terms of angle and distance). You can visit one, two or all three observation points, but it is recommended to visit all of them (use the signage in the area). The bonus for those who visit the middle observation point is going down some really cool steep stairs as well as ending the trip on a wooden boardwalk that goes right on top of the water.
About a kilometer away, up the street (north-east) to the beginning of the route, there is a free parking lot. It is recommended to park there and walk carefully on the side of the road, as the parking lot next to the campsite is expensive.
Although it is easy to find the observation points, you must follow the signs on the spot in order to get to the right places (the names of the points are written on the map as well as in the description of the route). Most of the walk is shaded, but of course it is recommended to stock up on water.
Tips and hints
The trip along the route is free and recommended for those who want to enjoy a lovely and unique view of the lake and the island.
For convenient viewing of the route as well as ideal orientation in the field, it is recommended to download the Outdootactive application before leaving for the route.
The route starts behind the beach near the campsite. Following the signs, start climbing the mountain towards the first observation point (OJSTRICA), where there is a bench and the possibility to take pictures. Then you go back down from this lookout and continue up to the second lookout (VELIKA OSOJNICA), you can decide at the intersection of the steps whether to continue to the highest lookout (recommended) or whether to continue to the third lookout (numbered in the order we went). If you decide to continue to the upper observation point, please note that after climbing to the peak, you have to descend a few meters until you reach the observation point, as mentioned, this is also the highest observation point. After that, go down the same road towards the crossroads we passed earlier and continue towards the last observation point on the documented route. There is again a bench for resting and another viewing angle of the lake and the island in its heart. After you finish enjoying the wonderful view, go down the steep and fun stairs and continue walking along the marked paths until you reach the road, from there you can already see the cool wooden boardwalk that runs right across the water, walk along the boardwalk to the starting point of the route.
