The Begunje Shepherd's Trail

The Begunje Shepherd's Trail is an excellent choice for seasoned hikers who are seeking great hiking with added stunning views. You can crown your ascent by adding on a climb to the peak of Veliki vrh on Mt. Begunščica.

The path 'čez Roža'

NOTICE: This route passes through an inaccessible area and is therefore closed.

 

This circular trail begins in the Draga valley from where it leads to the Preval mountain pasture and onwards traversing panoramic slopes past the source of the Roža spring all the way to the Roblekov dom mountain hut. From there, it descends back to the valley via the Poljška planina and Planinca planina mountain pastures and ends back at the start in the Draga valley.
