Distance 8.1 km
At Kamp Lazar, where you can refresh yourself before the tour, start following the signs for the Kozjak Waterfall. Cross the attractive footbridge to the left bank of the Soča River. Along the trail towards the Kozjak Waterfall you will notice the sign »Soška pot« (Soča Trail) which will first lead you to the confluence of the Soča River and the Kozjak Stream. Cross the Kozjak Stream along the wooden bridge and ascend higher on the bank. This themed trail is quite dynamic and will make you warm up along its ascents and descents. Along the entire trail you can listen to the melody of the emerald river and admire its rapids and pools into which it curls along its way to the sea. After approximately 60 minutes of walking, the signs direct you to the right on a cart track towards the village of Magozd. Ascend through the forest to the clearing where wonderful views open towards Mt. Krn. After another kilometre of walking you arrive to the village of Magozd where you start following the signs for the Kozjak Waterfall. On the large meadow the trail turns towards the Kozjak Waterfall. This splendid sight is really worth visiting. From here, you only have to follow the marked trail back to the starting point.
Instead of turning to the village of Magozd you can also continue along the Soča Trail to the village of Trnovo. You should return to the starting point along the right bank of the Soča River. A small section of the tour from the village of Trnovo is routed along the paved road.
