The tranquillity and a fairy tale of the Zadnja Trenta Valley (Zapoden Valley) always impress.
One of the easiest snowshoeing trails in the Soča Region presents the Zadnja Trenta Valley in all its glory. When it is already spring in the lower part of the valley, this trail still offers excellent conditions for snowshoeing. You will not only be rewarded by splendid views of the surrounding mountains but also of the ice-covered Zapotok Waterfalls in the gable end of the valley.
Even though the road is usually ploughed to the last ramp we recommend you to park your vehicle at the parking lot at the source of the Soča River.

Safety informationThe trail is completely safe, however, during the spring months you still have to watch out for the avalanches coming from the walls of Mt. Trentski Pelc (left side of the valley).
The access to the waterfalls is sometimes also prevented by the high level of water or iced-over riverbed.
Tips, hints and linksAccess from the village of Trenta to the parking lot at the source of the Soča River might be impossible immediately after the snowfall because this road is the last in line to be ploughed.
There are no catering facilities along the trail which is why you have to bring knapsack drink and food.
Getting thereLeave the national road 206 Bovec - Kranjska Gora at the turn towards the source of the Soča River and continue for approximately another kilometre to the arranged parking lot next to the cottage.
ParkingThere are usually at least some parking spaces ploughed next to the cottage at the source of the Soča River.
