Description of tour

Stol and back down to the Soča Valley. The starting point is the bridge over the Soča River at the hamlet of Log Čezsoški. Here one should head towards the village of Žaga and turn right at the road that leads to the Učja Pass (border crossing up to 2007). Just before the pass, one should turn left and follow the macadam road up to the Božca Pasture. Further along, the tour continues over the pass to the other side (the Breginj area), and here one should turn left on the cart track. From here, the scenic trail follows the ridge of Mt. Stol, passes the Hlek refuge and hunters' hut and reaches a small valley. At the turn by the post at the bottom of the valley, leave the cart track, turn sharply left and find a faint track that descends toward Hlevišča. After a downhill section characterised by 200 m of altitude difference, the track turns into a wider trail that brings one to the pasture. Next is the downhill section via macadam road to the main Bovec-Kobarid road. Here one should turn left towards the village of Trnovo ob Soči and continue right at the turn-off for the campsite. The tour then leads across the bridge over the Soča River, where one should turn left and follow the path via Prevejek and the hamlet of Log Čezsoški back to the starting point.
