This long but relatively undemanding snowshoeing hiking trail leads to the top of the longest mountain ridge of the Western Julian Alps.
Distance 21 km
The trail is mostly routed along an arranged forest road and very gradually ascends to the Božca Mountain pasture from where you can quickly reach the top of the mountain along the trail across the pastures. The higher you get, the more beautiful the views become and culminate with hiking along the ridge to the top of the mountain.
Because of its length, the tour is appropriate for physically well-prepared hikers.

Safety informationFrom the Spodnja Božca Mountain pasture to the beginning of the ridge above the Božca Mountain pasture you come across small avalanche sections. At the section between the Božca Mountain pasture to the top of the mountain we recommend you to hike along the right side of the ridge, especially in windy conditions.
Tips and hintsIf you notice that the forest road from the former border crossing Učja is ploughed, we advise you to make this section of the trail without snow-shoes. In good snow conditions we advise you to make the ascent on snow-shoes and to return on skis.
Getting thereIn the village of Žaga (approximately eight kilometres before the town of Bovec if you come from the city of Nova Gorica) turn on the national road No. 401 towards the former border crossing with Italy and continue for approximately seven kilometres until you arrive to the starting point of this tour.
ParkingThere are usually some free parking spaces available at the former border crossing.
