The Slovenian Mountain Trail

The Slovenian Mountain Trail arhiv Planinske zveze Slovenije

The Slovenian Mountain Trail starts in Maribor, and runs across Pohorje and the Kamnik and Savinja Alps, the Karavanke Alps, the Julian Alps and the Slovenian Alpine foothills, then descends through the Karst region and finally finishes by the Adriatic Sea. The route is marked with traditional ‘Knafelc’ hiking trail markings (a red circle with a white spot), each marked with a number ‘1’ to differentiate it from other trails. It is the longest and the most popular transversal hiking trail in Slovenia, and originating in 1953, it is one of oldest in Europe and the world. There are currently 80 check points along the trail (mountain huts, summits, museums, etc).

The Slovenian Mountain Trail travels through the Jesenice area along the ridge of the Karavanke Alps from Stol to the check point at the Koča na Golici mountain hut, and then descends into the valley to the Slovenian Alpine Museum in Mojstrana.
