Safety information

The sun can get quite hot above the tree line, which is why you should use appropriate sun protection. If you take this tour when the mountain hut is closed, you should bring a sufficient supply of water because there is no drinking water on the top of the mountain.

The slopes become slippery in wet conditions and during the winter. 

This is an easy hiking trail. Use of hiking trails is at your own risk!

Tips and hints

You can also end this tour by descending to the village of Bohinjska Bistrica instead of returning across Mt. Kobla and the Vrh Bače Mountan pass back to Podbrdo. From the already mentioned section, descend to the village of Bohinjska Bistrica and return to the starting point by train. You should of course first check the train timetable.

Turn-by-turn directions

This tour starts at the railway station. When you arrive to the main road, turn at the junction in the direction of the village of Trtnik and Mt. Črna prst. Ascend along the road towards Trtnik until the sign directs you onto a shortcut for Trtnik. When you arrive to the village, the sign next to a house will direct you uphill to the right and through the orchard. When you get out of the orchard and cross the meadow, you arrive to a forest where a marked trail will take you to the Kalarsko sedlo Mountain pass. From there, continue straight uphill. When you arrive above the tree line, wonderful views open towards the Baška grapa Valley. Continue along the trail to the Čez Suho Mountain pass between Mt. Rušni vrh and Mt. Črna prst where you will be able to notice your destination for the first time. Turn to the left and follow the marked trail which will take you to the Dom Zorka Jelinčiča Mountain hut which is only a few steps from the top. Descend from the top back to the Čez Suho Mountain pass and follow the markings for the Vrh Bače Mountain pass. Somewhat lower, you will come across another junction where you will have to follow the trail for the Vrh Bače Mountain pass. Follow the same markings at the next junction where a trail turns for Bohinjska Bistrica. The tour will take you past the Na Kalu Mountain pasture to the top of the sightseeing Mt. Kobla. From there, descend to the Vrh Bače Mountain pass where you will find the hunting lodge of LD Podbrdo. Follow the marked trail towards the village of Bača pri Podbrdu. When you arrive to the village, continue descending to Podbrdo. Cross the main road and the creek when you arrive to Podbrdo and then turn to the left in the direction of the town of Tolmin. You will soon arrive to a grassy trail turning uphill slightly to the left which represents the start of the well-arranged Pot čez Milpoh Trail. This trail is routed above Podbrdo – parallel to the valley. When you descend back into the valley, cycle through the railway underpass, turn left and return to the railway station.
