The exceptionally panoramic trail stage of moderate difficulty is part of the Walk of Peace from the Alps to the Adriatic, and part of the connecting Three Sanctuaries Trail.

The Kolovrat ridge, which is the natural barrier between the Friuli Plain and the Soča Valley, was used by the military and made up the Isonzo Front. There are many remnants from that period along the trail, including road infrastructure, caverns, water troughs and water reservoirs. The fortified Italian positions at Globočak and the memorial site are quite interesting. The trail runs past the very interesting ethnological collection at the Lukec Homestead in Kambreško, where you can visit the kitchen with its stone fireplace that is an ethnological monument of local importance. Continue along the trail to the Marijino Celje pilgrimage centre in Lig and towards the Church of St Gendrca below Korada. At the top of Korada, which is the highest point of the stage, the Italian king, Victor Emmanuel III, and his generals observed the events at the front. From that point, you can take in the Julian Alps, the Soča Valley, Veneto and the Friuli Plain, as well as the Adriatic Sea.

Just before the end of the stage you can visit the “Na skednju” bar in Vrtače, where you can try local food. You can also stop at the shelter at Korada.
