Hiking in Slovenia

One of the longest ascents to Blegoš begins in Hotavlje, a village in the valley Poljanska dolina, best known for its quarry of high-quality Hotavlje stone. The route starts behind the quarry and takes you through sunny Čabrače, over steep haymeadows beneath Prva ravan and through beech forests below Blegoš. You can make a round trip by descending past Jelenci.
