In the area south of the Risnjak National Park, Via Dinarica continues across the area of Tuhobić. This elongated mountain with steep sides follows the littoral edge of the Gorski kotar plateau from Gornje Jelenje towards Fužine for approximately 5 kilometers.

The slopes of Tuhobić facing the littoral side are mild and gradual, slowly descending into the karst fields. On the other side, facing the region of Gorski kotar, steep slopes 300 meters high rise from the valley of Lepenica. The Lepenica side of the mountain is covered in dense layers of mixed forest that almost reach the ridge itself. On the other side of the mountain, Tuhobić is covered in grasslands and rather bare. On no other mountain is the boundary between the forests characteristic for Gorski kotar and the karst terrain so sharp and noticeable as on Tuhobić. Two main peaks stand out along the elongated Tuhobić ridge: Stragarnica (1098 m.a.s.l.) and Jelenčić (1106 m.a.s.l.). In high elevations, the mountain is predominantly characterized by lush meadows that offer beautiful views.

The main base for a climb to the top is the Lepenica scout facility near Gornje Jelenje, located in the valley of Lepenica with a creek of the same name flowing through the valley and into the lake of Lepeničko jezero. There are two trails leading from there: the easier trail leads along the ridge of Tuhobić, while the harder trail passes along the steep side slopes of the mountain. It takes approximately one hour and a half of hiking to get from Lepenica to the peak. There are also longer trails from Fužine, Lič, Zlobin and Plase that lead to Tuhobić from the other side of the mountain. All these trails are marked with hiking trail markings, since Tuhobić is covered by the Gorski Kotar Hiking Trail (GPP). Thanks to the position of Fužine on the shores of the lake of Bajer, this settlement is one of the most picturesque settlements of Gorski kotar.

Approach to Tuhobič; a lot of weed, overgrown sometimes chest and headhigh. Leaving Tuhobič, again a lot of growth, not a much as the other side-I am hiking southbound.
