    What a view
    Picture postcard view with a seat to enjoy this spectacular view to match. I was lucky to see on a good day with no one else around, only saw a couple while walking to lookout. Only about a 10 minute hike but it’s over rocks and uneven ground so be careful. Also track not very well marked or maintained so very easy to get lost. For such a major view point signage should be more clear. If visiting Lake Bled then you must add to your must do list.

    Part of a loop with Mala Osojnica
    We stopped at this viewpoint as part of a loop hike combined with Mala Osojnica (review posted separately). I won't repeat all of what I said there, but I will note that I preferred Mala Osojnica to this viewpoint, but I was still happy that we visited both. It took us about 20 minutes to reach this spot from Mala Osojnica. We only stayed for 5 minutes, because it was more crowded than the previous spot. There's only a single bench here, and not as much lateral room to spread out and take pictures. We enjoyed seeing additional views and taking a couple photos from here as well. It took us a little less than 30 minutes to return to our starting point at the trailhead once we left.

    Incredible view!
    Visited in April and were lucky to have wall to wall sunshine. The hike up is pretty steep and rocky (especially the last 5 mins of the hike before reaching the viewpoint). However, the view is absolutely stunning. As we travelled in April, it wasn't too busy, but I imagine it can get pretty packed up there in the height of summer. I could have sat and stared at the view all day.

It’s a short 20-minute walk but the path is very steep and very rocky.
Typically the place to see.
You will be tired by the time you reach the top, but you will say wow.

Slightly strenuous 30 minute hike to the top that rewards you with fantastic views of the lake. Definitely worth doing if you are reasonably fit.

This view of Lake Bled is amazing. The walk up there is very rough, because a lot of rocks, but the view makes it absolutely worth it. The view is the best of Bled. You see everything you want. The walk will take about 15 - 20 minutes, but it is rough time. Do not miss this!

After reading all the good reviews, I decided to take this steep but short (15-20 minutes) hike instead of the Bled Castle for the best view of the town. Kind of regret it.

Steep was underestimating this hike. In the last 5-10 minutes, it's basically climbing on rocks with a metal rope nailed on the side rocks as a hand rail. In my opinion, it can be dangerous after bad weather.

I heard that it was raining very hard the 2 weeks before my hike. The trail and rocks were slippery.

The view was nice, but I highly recommend checking the weather for the last few days before going. If there was rain, it's better not going.

This is a must visit place in Bled. The entrance to the trail has only a small sign but you should see enough people heading up. It’s an uphill trip and it gets steeper as you go higher. And there is a steep section with lots of loose small rocks. You need good shoes to walk through. And the last section is like climbing the rock stairs. You will be rewarded with spectacular view at the top. The island in the lake appears in front of you. You also see Bled castle and Julian alps in the back. Breath taking view. Although the hike was not easy, I saw small kids on the trail too. Definitely family friendly hike.

Take your time up this steep, rocky trail, with the reward being the best views of Lake Bled from a rocky outcrop. There is a steel cable the last 50’ or so, so hang on and be cautious with your footing. Spend some time and watch as the cloud shadows affect the colors of the lake. Bring some food and enjoy a picnic. Take your time going down, the rocks are slippery. Well marked by the campground.

We took a quick detour here after visiting the island and it was well worth it, hiking for 20mins to the viewpoint and then only 10mins to return to the road. The view is incredible, with beautiful views of the lake, island, castle and Julian Alps - don't miss it!
