Distance 7.8 km
In order to determine the line of this trail run at various junctions, pay regard to yellow directional arrows. Along the trail you can also help yourself by following the yellow-white markings (on the ground or on buildings). We recommend you to start this trail run at the confluence of the Soča and Tolminka rivers (start is also possible in the centre of Tolmin), follow the Soča River upstream, pass the German ossuary and the civil cemetery, and run through the shopping area to the foothills of the rising with the remnants of the castle. This run is not routed to the top of this rising but crosses its slope above the settlement on the east side of the hill and joins the pavement leading to the village of Zatolmin. When you arrive to the village, start following the signs for the Polog Mountain pasture and the Memorial Church in Javorca. At the Church of St. Peter (TNP board), turn right to a military mule trail which will take you directly to the entrance point of the Tolmin Gorges (entrance ticket allows you to make a circular tour). When you arrive to the restaurant, find the gravel trail leading to the Austro-Hungarian cemetery at Loče from where the trail run shortly follows the paved road through the town until it reaches the bridge across the Tolminka River. Here, continue along the well-arranged hiking trail routed along the Tolminka River until you reach the wooden footbridge across the river in the vicinity of the confluence of the Soča and Tolminka rivers.
We recommend you to start this trail run at the confluence of the Soča and Tolminka rivers (also possible in the centre of Tolmin) and continue upstream along the Soča River.
