Trail description:
The trail starts at Ovčar inn in the northern part of the village and continues to a 813 meter high Kobilnik that is set-up as park and monument dedicated to the National Liberation War - NOB victims. At the top of the hill, there is a mighty monument dedicated to the victims of the National Liberation War. If the weather is nice, the visitors can admire the view of the Alps and the sea in the south-west. From Kobilnik, the path descends by the church and graveyard to Soline, where it turns left to a cart track that gradually turns into a path leading to Skozno, a natural bridge with a rock-shelter. On the way, a small Karst cave full of flowstone and speleothems can be seen. Skozno offers a magnificent view of the lower Vipava Valley.

The path continues along a marked path above the valley along the plateau edge to the marked crossroads, where the hikers can take a rest or continue along the path turning left towards Trpinovšče - a nice settlement with holiday cottages. There, the road turns right to a cart track leading to Rijavci.

Leave the hamlet behind and turn right onto the cart path heading in the direction Mrzla Rupa–Nemci. Here you bump into the marked Mt. Kuk Educational Trail. Turn right, pass the well-known water pit, the so-called »kal«, and continue up to the 946 metre high rocky Mt. Kuk, which offers an astonishing view on the Trnovo Forest and Lokve.

From Kuk, the path descends towards Trnovo along the educational path to the asphalt road. Turn right towards Trnovo, where you can relax and refresh at the inn Pri Ovčarju.
