Tour description

The tour starts in the centre of Bovec, from where you head toward the hamlet of Plužna. Before the church of St. Ulrich, turn right and go up the hill, passing the sport playground to the branch-off for the macadam trail on the right side. Further along, there is a rather steep ascent up to the Rusc stable. The trail continues straight to the junction for “Plajerjeva skala” (Eng.: Plajer’s Rock). Here, turn right and continue to the next junction, where the concrete trail begins to descend. Further down, where the road branches off for “Sveti Lenart” (Eng.: St. Leonard), turn sharply right to the B4 and B5 trail located above the main Bovec-Log pod Mangrtom road. After another right turn and crossing the meadows, first Mala vas and then the centre of Bovec is reached.

Points of interest

During this tour, one can either do some extra biking to the overlook at “Plajerjeva skala” or further down to the Church of St. Leonard.
