The grass-covered Mt. Grušnica is a wonderful sightseeing mountain and a genuine florist shop above the Kal Mountain pasture during the spring and autumn months. There is a nicely routed trail leading through the beech forest and across the soft meadows just beneath the top.

Start in the village of Tolminske Ravne – a nice little village at the altitude of 924 m – and continue along the marked trail to the field gate. Just behind it, one trail turns towards the Razor Mountain pasture, whilst the other turns towards Mt. Tolminski Migovec and the Kal Mountain pasture. You should follow the latter.

This undemanding tour, which is friendly to average hikers, will take you through a nice beech forest to a meadow beneath the Kal Mountain pasture. The grassy trail is usually well maintained and will take you across the meadow on the left side of the Kal Mountain pasture to a sightseeing slope of Mt. Grušnica where you can enjoy in views of the entire Tolmin Basin. When the weather is clear, you can enjoy in views all the way to the Adriatic Sea. The last section of the trail is somewhat steeper.

You should return along the same trail. In front of the Kal Mountain pasture, you will come across a bench on the viewpoint where you can rest and enjoy in marvellous views towards Mt. Krn and its neighbouring mountains, summits from Mt. Vrh Škrli to Mt. Mahavšček and Mt. Bogatin, and towards the Tolminka Valley deep below.

Author’s recommendation

In Tolminske Ravne, you can taste delicious cheese which is sold at the farm at the beginning of the trail.

The trail is safe. Certain sections of the trail are covered with a lot of fallen leaves during the autumn, which is why it requires caution.

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