The trail begins at the source of the Lipnica stream and leads over numerous small wooden bridges crossing the Grabnarica stream and beautiful fields to reach a small lake, known as the 'Count's Lake'.
The circular path leads through an area which is known for its exceptionally diverse flora and fauna, including rare stone crayfish and, the symbol of the trail, the white-throated dipper. Part of the trail is a designed Natura 2000 conservation area, and it is also possible to combine the trail with the Lipnica Castle Natural Science Trail.
The Grabnarica and Lipnica streams once powered a number of mills and sawmills. A walk along the trail reveals the importance of water for the local population both in the past and today. The circular path leads from the Grabnarica stream in Spodnja Lipnica through the wonderful fields surrounding Vošče to a small lake known as the 'Count's Lake'. On the way back you walk across beautiful fields with views of the Karavanke mountains and the Julian Alps.

My children are among those who, in addition to walking itself, need an additional reason to go for a walk. Here I reveal a trail that offers the greatest motivation during the month of March.
