Trail description

The first part of the Great Kočevje Alpine trail coincides with the Lesser, before taking its direction along the edges of Borovška and Goteniška Gora to Goteniški Snežnik and Medvedjak, Sušni Vrh and dilapidated Glažuta forestry centre through Grčarice to Jasnica and on the peaks of Stojna back to the cottage.
A great part of the trail runs across the High Karst, so you will feel a powerful Karstation of the land and come across many sinkholes, rocky sinks, basins, walls and caves.
The whole trail is well-marked, and equipped with signposts. There is also a booklet of Kočevje Alpine trail with the map on its backside.
