Even though the starting point of this hike is only half an hour yonder from our home in Ljubljana, I have never visited it considering Ljubljana is surrounded with unconfined opportunities for easy hikes. Well, not just Ljubljana, Slovenia offers plenty of options for hiking.

But not many in my opinion offer such stunning views of Ljubljana, so that’s one of the main reasons to visit.

Wait, I’ve got more. It’s an easy hike with plenty of shade, kids have a playground at the start as well as on the top, there’s a spring withal the way, one tomfool mill, a tiny swimming that offers a dip in the Summer and an imposing tower for an plane largest vista.

Well, if they are like mine, they will. But it’s unscratched to say I complained the most, considering I think from all the routes misogynist we chose the steepest one.

None the less this is a unconfined place to explore with the kids as first of all they can revere a renovated mill, than try out the playground at the very start.

The kids have a reward at the top too, considering whispered from climbing to the top of the lookout tower, they can play some increasingly at the other playground.

The path we chose however is not suitable for a stroller.

This is definitely not one of those places where the kids have all the fun. While they are rented at the playground, the starting point offers you a endangerment to have drinks and revere the little pond. Or if you are unflinching enough, you can jump into the swimming for a quick refreshment.

At the top you have flipside cottage serving unconfined local food, the kind of meal you often get in the mountains but here it’s without that long, exhausting hike.
