Pokljuka plateau is covered with pine forests and pastures where cattle graze in summer time. The hike from Rudno polje to Uskovnica is suitable for all generations. You can also visit the energy points field where you can relax or help heal various physical conditions. Freshen up at the Triglav Pokljuka Sport Centre in Rudno polje or at the alpine hut in Uskovnica. The trail runs on stone and forest roads, past grazing pastures, through forests and you also cross the Ribnica gorge.

Author’s recommendation

In autumn and winter, fog is quite frequent in the valley, but the Pokljuka plateau bathes in sun rays, therefore, enjoy this tour when you want to get some sun.

Prior to every hike, check the weather forecast and trail conditions.

Don't forget to take a camera with you.
