I rate this stage 5 only because of the spectacular scenery. Ignoring the scenery, I would give it a 1. Why? It is definitely not easy. There are steep switchbacks with loose gravel making it very easy to slip. Also there are several areas of climbing through boulders where the trail is not marked or visible. Hiking poles are a must. The GPS usually showed us as being off the trail but there was no other place to go. After the second suspension bridge and long uphill, there is a 3+ mile walk on the highway to Bovec. I Our tired feet really suffered from the asphalt. I would definitely recommend stopping at Hotel Bovak or taking a bus into town.
