This pleasant hiking trail takes you above the Trenta Valley along an old winding military mule trail.
This nice and wide trail is a genuine work of art constructed by military constructors during World War I and leads along the numerous stone-constructed bends from the bottom of the valley to the hunting lodge beneath the Stara Utra Mountain pass approximately 1000 metres higher. This trail is some kind of a copy of the Vršič Mountain pass road because it includes a similar number of bends and because of the similar construction. Several sections of this road offer splendid views of the surrounding mountains and the valley below.
The start of the trail is indicated by a yellow sign on the post located approximately 100 metres from the road gallery in the Trenta Valley.

Safety informationThis trail is completely undemanding in normal conditions. Caution is only advised during the winter months at the upper section where the mule trail crosses several potential avalanche areas.
Tips, hints and linksThe trail is mostly routed through the forest and provides shade even though it is routed on the southern side of the mountain. There are several sources of drinking water along the trail. From the hunting lodge beneath the Stara Utra Mountain pass you can continue to the eastern side of the mountain by descending along the hunting trail to the foothills in the vicinity of the Church of the Virgin Mary of Loreto but we advise you not to take this trail because it is difficult to follow.
