Hiking & mountaineering

Rudnica

Rudnica is a hill on the eastern shore of Lake Bohinj. It lies on the edge of Triglav National Park and splits the Lower Bohinj valley (the valley of river Sava Bohinjka) from Upper Bohinj valley (the valley of remarkably nice and tranquill villages: Stara Fužina, Studor, Srednja vas, Češnjica, Jereka). It is a reatively short circular hike right from the lake shore. The view on the lake and surrounding hills and valleys is worth the walk. You will pass some lonely meadows and forests and end the trip with a refreshing jump in the lake.

Starting point:
Stara Fužina at Bohinj Lake (560 m). There are some parking spaces by a church at the end of the village.

Description:
Go towards the center of the village from the church in Stara Fužina. You will notice a green signpost for Rudnica which directs you to the left. Soon you come to Ribnica stream, cross it and continue on the path that runs along its left bank. Cross the stream again at the next bridge and after about 100 meters turn right onto a grassy cart road, which runs along the stream. On a nice path you will come the an asphalt road where you turn right towards the local ski slopes of Senožeta. Turn right by a chapel and shortly reach the ski slopes. Head across the ski slopes by the forest edge directly uphill until you come to a dirt road. Follow it to a saddle where you turn westwards in direction of the rounded summit of Rudnica, which already boasts in front of you. Leave the dirt road just before an abandoned farm, go straight across a meadow and shortly come into a forest, where the path starts to ascend steeper. Keep right in the flatter top section and come to the summit with a stamp-box and a bench with a lovely view on the Upper Bohinj valley. Descend towards south-west across a lovely meadow with a view of Lake Bohinj, then follow a cart road all the way to Stara Fužina and on to the lake shore.
