Route description

The trail begins at the Kluže Fortress and turns right at the bridge over the Koritnica River to the Bavšica Valley. At first, the asphalt road descends, but after short flat section it continues via a long and steep ascent. At the top of the slope, the hamlet of Spodnja Bavšica is reached from where the view of the whole valley opens up. The trail continues via a flat section past Matijev čebelnjak (Matija’s Bee-House) and the hamlet of Zgornja Bavšica up to the Alpine learning centre at the end of the valley. Return is made via the same route.
