This popular hiking trail to the abandoned Goričica Mountain pasture above the town of Bovec will always impress you with the views and peaceful forests.
Distance 10.8 km
This undemanding hiking tour starts and ends in the centre of Bovec. It starts ascending at the very start and quickly gains altitude. At several sections it offers splendid views of Bovec and the Bovec Basin. The most difficult section of the ascent is already behind you when you reach the hunting lodge on the mountain pasture. From here, the trail mostly gradually descends into the valley, mainly along the former Italian military road – mule track.
There are no water sources along the trail, which is why we recommended you to bring sufficient water suppplies, especially during the summer months.
Update: June 19, 2019
Safety informationThe initial rocky section of the trail requires special caution in case of wet weather. In winter conditions (snow) we advise you not to continue along the trail from the Goričica Mountain pasture towards the west because the trail (mule trail) is mostly routed along an avalanche area. In this case, we recommend you to return along the same trail you came from.
The trail is partially routed along an easy marked hiking trail. Use of the hiking trails is at your own risk!
Tips and hintsHunting lodge on the Goričica Mountain pasture is not staffed and is locked.
In case of stormy weather you should not seek refuge under the trees but you should seek shelter in World War I military caverns.
Getting thereLeave the national road No. 203 at one of the roundabouts in front of the town of Bovec and turn to the centre of the town.
ParkingThere are free parking lots available next to the Bovec Airport, or north of the centre of Bovec next to the sports and recreation facility.
